Open up please
Share your fragrant beauty
With desperate souls in need
One need not measure a rose to discover its beauty. An insignificant rosebud is as capable of producing loveliness and a pleasing aroma, as is a lofty hybrid. All needed is for it to open up and share.
Do you feel like all you have left is a tiny fragment of usefulness in God’s kingdom?
It is enough.
When given in sincerity, God accepts the fragments of our lives.
He uses leftover pieces. Seemingly insignificant people. Tiny rosebuds.
All God requires is that we open our hearts to receive Him and then surrender to share His love. The offering is not measured by the size of the gift; rather, our willingness to obey and to share Christ with others.
It doesn’t matter if you feel insignificant. As you faithfully spread the aroma of Christ to those around you, His beauty is what comes forth and is pleasing to the Father.
As His child, you are significant in God’s eyes.
I love that about God, don’t you? How much we matter to Him.
