My dearest friend Lori sent this to me and gave me permission to share it. She and I have walked quite the journey together over the years, lots of long, deep conversations about identity and much more!
“You know we go through life wearing ill-fitting garments due to conformity, identity complex, and to protect and cover our brokenness and pain. I believe God has us in a time of stripping away those old ill-fitting, cumbersome, form hiding cloths that not only weigh us down but hinder our transformation and maturity. I keep envisioning little girls playing dress up in cloths 10x too big, walking in over sized shoes and stumbling and falling as they try to look the part…
I want to wear the garment the
King designed for me to wear.
Even if it’s form fitting, and my scars show…
Even if I feel vulnerable and open…”
Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Romans 13:12, 14 So let us set aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ,
and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
I think God is moving in the hearts of women, nation wide – world wide!
We long for rest; the kind of rest that only comes from knowing
who we are in Christ!
We long for connection; the kind that lets us be who we really are, broken, vulnerable and real.
Be Courageous – Women of Faith!
Strip off the layers, the ill-fitting cloths that hide who you are, that weigh & wear you down…that keep you from intimacy with the KING OF KINGS.
Put on the garment of praise &
Clothe Yourself With Christ
