May People Not See Me

'Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance 
wherever I am. Fill my heart with Your Spirit 
and Your life. Penetrate my being and take 
such hold of me that my life becomes a radiation 
of Your own life. Give Your light through me and remain in me in such a way that every soul I 
come in contact with can feel Your presence in me.

'May people not see me, but see You in me.'

                     John Henry Newman


  1. What an inspiring quote by J.H. Newman and a lovely photo to go with it.

    Thank you ~ FlowerLady

  2. Wow! I need to print this out and read it daily and throughout the day! That John Henry Newman!!!

  3. Oooooo, seeing this only now. I had to grin at Claudia's comment about printing out the words, but for me, it'll have to be one step up - I have to make a huge banner of it, and hang it right before my eyes, so I can never, ever run away from it! On a more serious note, I will re-word and try to write that prayer on my heart - May Jesus be seen; not me.
