“Then the LORD said to Moses, "Take fragrant spices—gum resin, onycha and galbanum—and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts, and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred. Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you” (Exodus 30:34-36 NIV).
What do you see when you look at me?
Do you see my imperfections and faults?
Do you see the ways I failed today?
The ways I took life into my hands once again?
Or do you see me broken at your feet,
crying out to start over once again.
Do you see my words rising up to you,
calling out for forgiveness and renewal?
Do you see my life as an incense
mixed uniquely just to serve and honor you?
