“The Scent of Roadkill”

” The Scent of Roadkill”–A thought #process #choices #influence

Recently, I was driving through a narrow, wooded road, when my vehicle encountered the remains of a skunk. The roadkill was still recognizable with its black fur with white stripe along its’ tail. As the day went along, I had to use that same road a few times going back and forth, and I would witness the aftermath of cars, trucks, and other wheeled vehicles upon what became the increasingly unrecognizable carcass of this skunk.

As you can imagine, the smell of skunk is quite distinct both in life, and in death. In an act of defiance the dead animal’s scent and stench not only met those vehicles which crushed it, but the surrounding landscape for several blocks as well.

While my driving by the skunk’s remains were for a few moments, It made me think of the impressions we leave with both our God and those around us on a daily basis in doing this thing called life. We each carry our personal bodily smell. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you or I “stink”; it can be a sign of our individuality from God himself. We cover those up out of respect with soap, colognes, perfumes,etc.

There is also, however, the scent of attitudes towards God and others during those times life is being done to us in the good, and bad. There is a scent coming from each of us spiritually in different seasons of life as God is conforming us into His image.

There are moments where we are being crushed by the weight of destiny and calling in God. We mistake process for punishment and we can smell of unforgiveness, judgment, lack of mercy, impatience. But God is looking for the scents of love, justice, forgiveness and Heaven from His kids. It’s not so much the crushing we meet as it is the scent which meets God, saint and sinner which matters both now and into the aspect of legacy.

At such times of crushing, God wants to reveal the sweet smells of Heaven, which will not only keep you in his love but cause the witnesses of your life to become the motivation for others to pursue the God you and I claim to follow

Heaven is not looking for roadkill. It is looking for living sacrifices who will release the fragrance of Christ again and again–Romans 12:1

“Father Is Entering”–A poem

Father is Entering

 

 

The Father is entering the days

And The Father is entering the days

A Father unto the nation

A Dad, a Dad unto the church

 

A Father, a Dad, a son

A Dad unto the church

A Father unto a nation

Oh son, son, son, son; be humble

 

A Joseph time

A changing time

A day in the time

A day in time

 

A God, a Dad, a deep

A God, a Dad, a deep

O deep things, a deep one

Oh, He’s deep!

 

Answers in Him

The dear, deep things in Him

God The Father

Oh He’s Father

A Thought.

As doors of access you’ve held dear with certain people and places close shut, the temptation to feel that you were not enough or did enough in the past seasons of process will introduce itself to your soul. Always remember that God doesn’t always look at past or present seasons alone, but he sees the larger picture, namely the season where you will have your coming out and influencing more for His kingdom. What you’ve learned in certain situations and with different people is invaluable in God’s sight and will serve quite well in this season of many doors opening for you and others. You have stewarded better than you think.

Opening The Heaven–Poetry

Opening The Heaven

Opening, the opening, the Heaven
In the Heaven, in the Heaven
Oh the Heaven, oh the Heaven
Oh the Heaven

Oh the wind
Oh the wind
Oh the gate
Opening the gate

Entering the gate
Entering the gate
Opening the gate
Holy

Oh the key
Visions of grace
Visions of Heaven
Change, now

Visions and dreams
Holy dreams
It’s grace, it’s hope
Grace…

Hosting the grace
Holy change
Open the gate
Open the gate

Secrets, hosting the secret
Open the dance
Holy dance
Open Heaven

King, the king oh be
The key, oh the king
Oh the wind
Seasons, oh seasons
