Day 23: Weightless


Oh the weight I gain

When I Put On anxiety, I will be anxious.

When I Put On fear, I will be fearful.

When I Put On despair, I will be hopeless.

Oh the weight that you will gain

When you Put On _____________, what will you be?

But...

Oh the weight that we will lose

When we Put On Peace, we will Put Off Anxiety.

When we Put On Faith, we will Put Off Fear.

When we Put On Hope, we will Put Off Despair.

To Put On~

"to make part of one's appearance or behavior; to wear like a garment."

Put On+ Put Off~

Now what?

Put Into Practice & Press Forward~

Wearing our new clothes, whether you or I feel like it or not!

Press Forward in Joy, when discouragement overcomes our soul.

Press Forward in Peace, when anxiety ruffles our feathers.

Press Forward in Patience, when discontent in the waiting.

Press Forward in Kindness & Goodness, when selfishness keeps us in my own world.

Press Forward in Faithfulness, when distrust leaves us isolated.

Press Forward in Meekness, when pride keeps us puffed up.

Press Forward in Self~Control, when the rebellious child in us starts to emerge.

Press Forward in Love, in His Love that lives within us,

because

Whatever we wear on the inside will be produced on the outside~

His Fruit

that enables us to

Put Into Practice~

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me,

or seen in me~ so that the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9

Put On + Put Off + Put Into Practice = Peace

What do you have to Put Into Practice

in order to Press Forward in His Peace?

Put Into Practice & Put On Jesus~

To Wear Him.

To Clothe yourself with Him,

like a garment,

all of Him,

because

He is all you need to

Press Forward.

So let’s

Fast

from Putting On our heavy laden clothes

by

Putting on

His Clothes

that make us

weightless~

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.

Colossians 3:12-14

What do you have to lose?
