Obviously, I am not speaking here of actual clothing…(though we should be careful with those as well )….but the ‘clothing’ of His righteousness ..that speaks to the world of His presence and glory.
What Clothes Will I Choose To Wear Today?
Will I choose the ones that honor my King?
That show the world my true inner being?
Or will I again reach for those from the past
That fit so ‘comfortably’ and seem longer to last
Will I grab the ones that I know are ‘my size’
Or the ones that will help me to see through His eyes
Will I go for the colorful, reach for the flair
That helps me blend in with the masses out there
Or will I be different, set apart from the rest
Putting on the garments that reflect Him the best
Will the choices before me, cloud up my mind
Or will I wear His choice, His peace then to find
Will I rejoice that He’s given me a choice here at all
Or resent His influence, and ignore when He calls
Will I pick that which shines; and speaks of His ways
Or that which allows me to hide Him today?
Will I reject the colors that seem just too ‘loud’
And settle for those that fit in with the crowd
I hope I choose His clothes each time I get dressed
For I know, from His word, that His ways are best
