How do you get dressed?

I’ve never been a fan of getting dressed.  I never have anything to wear and I’ve always needed to lose weight Sad smile  A little lesson I’ve learned is that it doesn’t matter what size you are or how much designer clothing you have in your closet. The only thing that helps me get dressed anymore is knowing who I am.  Before I step foot into my closet I need to dress myself with God’s truth of who I am.  I am dearly loved, made in the image of God, set apart to do a good work and the list goes on.  Satan can’t touch me when I’m dressing myself in God’s truth.  If you stand in the mirror or your closet and think awful thoughts you need to dress yourself in God’s truth first.

I got this shirt on a trip to Nashville Tennessee and I must admit I fell in love with the southern charm!  They used the word “dang” for everything and when I saw this shirt I had to have it!  This is what God has done in my life – Dang Freedom! I no longer live my life listening to Satan’s lies.  Instead I clothe myself in God’s truth and it’s dang Freedom!

Let me be sure to tell you I’m by no means perfect and Satan still tries to bring me down but I’m getting better at knowing his strategy.  It’s that voice that says “You don’t need to exercise”, “Look how fat you are?”, “One cookie won’t kill you”.  It’s these little lies that take you down a path of destruction.  It always seems harmless in the moment but I promise he will use our choices to torture us if we allow him.  So stay strong, be fully clothed in God, and tell Satan he can’t touch you!

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.          Ephesians 6:10-18
