Fragrance of God

Inspired by (2 Corinthians 2:16)
"to those being saved, it is a fragrance that brings life"
Good News Bible - Today's English Version

We are the sweet smelling incense being offered to God by Jesus ,
yet it is His fragrance, breathed into our souls that gives us life.


Fragrance of God,
pleasant
to those who believe.

The musty aroma
of the deep forest,
leaves underfoot,
pine needles fallen to the earth.
The first inhale of breath
from a mountain summit,
clean of all impurity.
The cool breeze
off a morning lake,
filling my senses with a new day.
The scent of an apple pie
cooking
on an Autumn afternoon.

The fragrance of God,
a smell pleasing to those
choosing to walk by His word,
sour
to those
who take no heed
of His voice.
