Getting Dressed for the Day!

Getting Dressed for the Day!

By comingjoy



When we get up in the morning we decide what we will wear for the day. In Colossians 3:12 it states: So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience: (NASB)

What if we visualized putting on the heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patiences as though they were articles of clothing?

When we get up each day invision ourselves putting on our clothes as though each article of clothing were one of those acts. Helping us to know how to treat those we may come into contact with. Rather we get along with them or not.


First put on the t-shirt of compassion as it covers our heart that guides our feelings

Second put on a shirt as we put one arm into the sleeve of gentleness and the other arm in the sleeve or kindness; as it is with our arms that we reach out to help others.

Third put on the pants of patience as we kneel in prayer for others and or our self as we wait.

Finally putting on the shoes of humility as we try to walk in the other persons shoes.

Once we have dressed for how we are to treat others, we can then put on the clothes to help us for what may come against us.

Ephesians 6:11-17 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
14Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
15and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE;
16in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

By doing this each day we have prepared ourselves for whatever lies ahead of us. In how to treat others and how to stand against adversity.

I can just see it now, waking up in the morning sitting up in bed; saying "Lord help me put on the garments and be prepare for today."

What a wonderful way of describing to wake up in the morning before the Lord, and being ready to take one step at a time!
