Last night, a skunk said “hello” to one of our dogs (the other dog was greeted by a skunk about a month ago). People will recommend that you combine several soaps, oils, and other liquids to develop a shampoo to remove the smell from an animal. While it may help, it normally takes a few weeks for the smell to go away. Last night, we tried something different. We immediately put our dog in the pool (she can swim) and let her splash a round for a few minutes. We had been told that if you place a dog in a chlorine pool immediately, it will remove the smell before the oils can sink into the dog’s hair. It worked!!!! When we took her out, all we smelled was wet dog. Did you know that we also need a quick response to the smell of sin in our lives?
In Acts 3:19 we read, “19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,”
Just like the oils from the skunk, if we don’t immediately remove sin from our lives, it leaves a “smell” that is displeasing to ourselves and those around us. If there is the smell of sin in your life right now, jump into the Living Water so that it may be removed from your life.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
