Fashion Forward


This poem was written by a good friend and I can relate with how many outfits we try to wear everyday. It's exhausting!!! It also reminded me that despite everything life throws our way, surrendering to our Creator allowed me to shed these outfits and just be. Be who He wanted me to be. Trust the process of how His plans will manifest in my life. When was the last time you allowed yourself to just be?


I step into the dressing room with more outfits than is allowed

Only six it says

I have more than six

Debt

Pain

Envy

Exhaustion

Irritation

Fear

Laziness

Jealousy

Self Absorption

Haughtiness


I step out of the dressing room to display each outfit

To seek praise

And recognition

Comfort

And acceptance

Help

And justification


I step into the reality that I am not fashion forward

Others wear the same outfit better

Others wear it worse

I am not special


I step back into the dressing room

And disrobe

There I am

Just as I was created

Naked

Vulnerable

Helpless

Alone

Scared

Humble

Six outfits we all own

Hiding in our closets

Packed away in boxes

Crumpled in the corner


I step back in time when I was born

Naked

God's image

Parent's hope

So completely treasured

Ready to be clothed

Ready to be cared for and loved


I step into eternity, into one white outfit

Custom designed

A perfect fit

Exclusive

Fashion forward!
