Does God shine through you?

I was reading this book and came across this prayer. I just wanted to share this my thoughts with you. Hope that you like....

Dear Jesus,

Help me to spread your fragrance everywhere I go.
Flood my soul with Your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly
that my life may only be a radiance of Yours.
Shine through me and be so in me,
that every soul I come into contact with
may feel Your presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see
no longer me, but only Jesus!
Stay with me
and I shall begin to shine as You shine;
so to shine as to be a light to others;
the light, O Jesus, will be all from You.
None of it will be mine;
it will be You shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise You in the way You love best,
by shining on those around me.
Let me preach You without preaching,
not by words but example,
by the catching force,
the sympathetic influence
of what I do,
the evident fullness of the love
my heart bears to You.
Amen.
-written by Mother Teresa.

God should be the love of your life!

A life given over to God is a beautiful thing.
One can not express how much joy and love the

    Gail - thank you for your continual posts and inspiration. Truly Christ means more than all else to you :)

    Philippians 3:7-12 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
