My Lord – at the banks of the river, You drown my fears in Your perfect love. Praise You!
Being a part of Your gospel, being involved in Your mission, being immersed in a church full of You – awakened me to a new world! I was surrounded by Your identity! The closer to church I got, the more abundant the scent became. The medley of compassion, love, enthusiasm, patience, grace and mercy created a bouquet that captivated me.
“But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume. Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.” 2 Corinthians 2:14-15 NLT
The aroma of life fills the essence of my presence and awakens my soul! “O how I long for You – my beautiful Lord!
Once You eroded away all my misunderstandings, the fragrance of the church changed. The perfume was now sweet and not bitter.
Upon discovering what it is You came to do to and for my life, I realize now how much I longed for a relationship with You!
Lord! We want this fragrance to fill the atmosphere of Wyoming! Captivate us with the flow of Your church! Use this Christ-like fragrance to draw others to the banks of Your Living Water!
We pray for the 5,457 people who have yet to connect into a gospel church in this county. May our Lord expand, elevate and reinforce the credibility of the local church in this county.
As the river flows, so the time has come for us to let the current carry us. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
