Apparel

“. . . in like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel . . .with good works.”  1 Timothy 2:9-10

God makes a way for us to have a beautiful wardrobe.

Thank You, Lord, for always knowing what is best for us. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Adorned

Seen by God
as fashionably
adorned with what
looks best on me
a smile, good works
and hand me downs
for free.

  1. Debbie, The physical things of this world (including our physical appearance) slowly decays and leaves us. But the spritual things of God with which we adorn ourselves will last fo ran eternity! What a blessing it is to have the ability to invest our lives in that which will never decay nor corrupt! Lord bless you.

  2. Good morning Debbie,you crack me up 😀 😀 with hand me downs that’s free,yep that’s where I am now. But I’m not staying here! I did enjoy your poem very much.
    Love you

  3. Oh, that I could learn to see myself the way God sees me. 🙂

  4. Thank you so much, Pastor Rob, for showing us what will last and what a blessing that is! God bless you as you wear Him well today!

  5. I am so extra blessed that I made you laugh! haha! A bonus blessing! Love you and am praying for you and for your niece! God bless you and all you freely display of Him and His love today!

  6. We remember .. .and then we forget. And then He reminds us, and reminds us again! This is the way it is with me, I know! 🙂 God bless you and all the ways He covers you, Ted!

  7. Oh Sweet Sis Deb!! This is Wonderful–I love your poem and the message from Him. It’s all perfect, precious and true!! More and more I find that I put on the “same old thing”: a garment of Praise to Him!! It’s very very sparkly, doncha know!! God bless you abundantly today, and always–love, your sis Caddo Delight

  8. This spoke to my heart, Debbie. Jesus said we are not to be anxious about what we will eat, drink or wear–that our Father knows we need these things.
    Sadly, I can become distracted not so much by wanting to wear all of the most current fashions, but by worrying that my clothing isn’t “holy” enough.
    It is a daily battle to put materialistic thinking out of my mind and concentrate on that which is spiritually pleasing first. .

    Have you ever considered that the “good works” which the saints do on earth might contribute to the eternal apparel we wear upon resurrection? It would make sense to me that the Lord would bring out what is currently “hidden” in our hearts to place on display for all to see.

  9. You are a blessing to me and so I’ve just nominated you for the Reader Appreciation Award. The rules are simple, so just pop over to my blog and copy the award and rules so you can post it to your own!

  10. I always think a smile is one of the most beautiful things any of us can wear. Love this poem! Aren’t you glad the clothes He gives us are so glorious! Muchly blessings xx

  11. I love your sparkly garment of praise to Him, Sis Caddo! It’s the bestest thing ever!!! Love you too! God bless you as you shine and shimmer for Him today!

  12. I loved your comment so much, sweet Heather, and the heart for Him that it came from! It IS easy to think about material things because of all our eyes see. Praying to see with those spiritual eyes the things that please Him most!
    And your thoughts about good works contributing to our eternal apparel sounds like a whole other post! 🙂
    God bless you and your beautiful outfit of gratitude and humility!

  13. Thank you so very much Martha! You are such a sweetie! I will be over soon . .. God bless you!

  14. I am smiling really big right now, sweet Aimee!!! Thank you for that! And loved the thought of glorious clothes from Him. God bless you and keep you all wrapped up in Him! love and prayers!

  15. Well, I must confess that I do like to look at pretty things both in nature and in stores…sometimes expensive stores and sometimes at Dollar Stores. I like to fix myself up as pretty as I can. I might as well be honest. I like to look at pictures of animals and people, too…pretty fur, pretty feathers, and pretty hair. But I cherish pretty attributes in people, as well…a friendly smile, laughter, a soft spoken word . I love pretty language…pretty poems, songs, the King James Version with those pretty wherefores and hitherto. I guess I just love “whatsoever things are lovely, and that is why I love the Lord and His word. 🙂

    I do get carried away window shopping at times…sigh.

    Thank you for the pretty poem and your pretty self! 🙂

    Love,
    Theresa

  16. Love you so much, our wonderful woman of the Word! I, too, like pretty things and look at the catalogs and notice how nice people look! 🙂 And love flowers and animals and nature. I think God smiles when we love all the beautiful things He’s made! I’m with ya! God bless you and your lovely self! You glow!

  17. The Lord suggested long dresses this year. And, oh man, talk about comfortable, cool, and God given style — it’s been great. I love it! Awesome post, Deb. God Bless you & yours!

  18. I LOVE long skirts and dresses, Lady D! 🙂 And agree that they are so comfortable and cool and easy for me. God bless you and all that He dresses you in!
