A song:
Sweet Holy Spirit
Sweet Spirit of life
Oh how I need You
Breathe on me once again
Refresh, restore, revive
Oh how sweet the fragrance of Christ!

2 Corinthians 2:14-16 AMP
14 But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere,
15 For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God, [discernible alike] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing:
16 To the latter it is an aroma [wafted] from death to death [a fatal odor, the smell of doom]; to the former it is an aroma from life to life [a vital fragrance, living and fresh]. …

Job 33:4 AMP
4 [It is] the Spirit of God that made me [which has stirred me up], and the breath of the Almighty that gives me life [which inspires me].

Along with the above song and scripture the Lord impressed the smoldering wick upon my heart.


The smoldering wick He promises not to snuff out! It only needs the Holy Spirit to breathe on it once again – to burst into flame and be restored/revived.


He restores: breathes refreshment and new life into my soul!



The smoldering wick He promises not to snuff out-the Holy Spirit only needs to breathe on it-to revive it’s flame!
