This Week’s Wardrobe {a promise & a prayer}


Beautiful artwork by @incourage.

“Since I’ve been chosen by God for this new life of LOVE, Lord dress me in the wardrobe YOU have picked out for me: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline.

Through Your spirit living in me, make me even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you.

And regardless of what else I put on today, remind me to wear LOVE…
 my basic, all-purpose garment. I never want to be without it.

Peace of Christ, keep me in tune with others and in step with You. None of this going off and doing my own thing. Let the Word of Christ have the run of the house in my life and take up plenty of room in my life.

Let every detail in my life—words, actions, whatever—be done in Your name Jesus as You cultivate thankfulness in me. I want my life to be a thank you note, giving thanks to God the Father every step of my day. In Jesus name, amen and amen.
