So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. Colossians 3.12-14 Msg
Fashion is one of my many loves. I love clothes, I love style and I love jewellery, I just love fashion. This year God put it on my heart to not buy clothes for a year – What the?
I can remember the February morning I got this instruction and I denied and ignored it for a while, but you know God if he wants us to do something his instructions won’t disappear. Arghhhh so on the 1st March I decided to obey (well actually I had decided before then but had a little prep time to myself!!) What better way to start this thing than a shopping day with friends!
That was just over 4 months ago now, although to some of you it wouldn’t be a problem to me this ‘fasting’ has been hard hard hard. Ive been so tempted many many times but through Gods grace and looking to him for the strength I’ve managed to hold off. Sometimes with a grizzly grumpy face but I’ve managed!!
I’m looking forward to my upcoming birthday – yup you guessed my birthday list already – CLOTHES!!! I asked for vouchers to my favourite shopping centre..is that Ok? I’m not actually sure!!!..what do you think…
I’ll keep you all posted on this journey along with some cool fashion ideas – I can blog clothes surely!!! but for now I keep thinking about March 2015!
