Wardrobe Makeover

Dear sweet Bricklayers,

Recently, my mom and grandma were so generous to take me on a shopping excursion and spend the afternoon helping me find cute clothes to outfit this season of my life. Pants, dresses, blouses of many colors and textures, earrings, shoes… there are so many ways that we adorn ourselves. I love being a woman!

Although it’s wonderful to do a wardrobe makeover, we all know that these items won’t last. However, God clothes us with enduring items that are not only beautiful, but necessary for living for Him.

Don’t you love what the Word of God says about the garments that He gives us access to as His beloved daughters?

Here are a few highlights:

  • The Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18):
    • Purpose: When the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground.
    • Belt of truth
    • Breastplate of righteousness
    • Feet fitted with readiness that comes from the gospel of peace
    • Shield of faith to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one
    • Helmet of salvation
    • Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God
  • Jewelry
    • Necklace of Love and Faithfulness (Prov. 3:3-4)
    • Crown of beauty instead of ashes (Isaiah 61:3)
    • Arrayed us as a bride adorns herself with her jewels (Isaiah 61:10)
  • Clothing
    • Garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair (Isaiah 61:3)
    • Garments of salvation (Isaiah 61:10)
    • Robe of righteousness (Isaiah 61:10)
    • As noble women, we are clothed with strength and dignity (Prov. 31:25)
    • Removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy (Psalm 30:11)
    • For you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ (Gal. 3:27)
    • Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness & patience (Col. 3:12)

In this season as unmarried women, be diligent to do a spiritual wardrobe makeover to not only be ready and gorgeous for Mr. Husband, but simply to be ready for each day as a beautiful and loved Daughter of the King of kings.  This might sound cheesy, but it’s true: Princesses are deliberate about what they wear and they aren’t sloppy both inside and out.

Delighted to have access to the best heavenly closet ever!

Consider these questions

  1. How do you deliberately get “clothed” in God’s outfits every day?
  2. How might you reach out to others who are spiritually “naked”?
