“The Fitting Room
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12
The Apostle Paul uses the metaphor of putting on the virtues like you put on your clothes, but for much of my life I felt more like I was wrestling them on. Like when you’re in the fitting room and your arms are above your head and you start what appears to be a frenetic shimmy into an outfit that should have had an extra button, zipper or should simply be a large. I don’t think that is what Paul had in mind.
My greatest hope is that you will believe how chosen, set apart and dearly loved you are by Jesus. And that in this believing you’ll discover a new set of virtues you don’t have to fight, but simply get to wear.”
This is an excerpt from Kelly Minter’s book “The Fitting Room”. I always like reading these books and inspirational quotes from Daysprings.com. It is just so uplifting makes you want to sing for joy and give thanks and praise everyday.
So I’m giving thanks for life, thanking God for the opportunity to be true to myself and true to His teachings and His values. Remember if you dont stand up for what is true and right, you will fall for anything.
So as you start fresh another day, clothe yourself in the glory of the Lord and let His light shine through you.
Here’s to a BLESSED weekend
