How many times have you said to someone, "I have nothing to wear"? We women are famous for that statement, which is basically always said while we're standing next to a closet full of clothes. I am one of those women who has said that many times. But have we ever really known what it's like to have nothing to wear? I highly doubt that!
The Lord has been changing my perspective on SO many things lately, and this is one of them. I used to be a clothes/fashion addict. Obsessive about what I wore, and never having enough. Well, today I went through my clothes, because my drawers were literally breaking from the weight of all the clothes in them, yet I always think I don't really have anything to wear.
I emptied them out, and really....I almost started crying. How foolish I have been all of these years! I have piles and piles of good, nice clothing, that any woman should be so grateful to have. There were so many pieces of clothing that I had put aside--clothes in brand new condition--because they just weren't right somehow, or I wanted something better. I am looking at them now with a fresh perspective! Many of them that had been cast aside are now going to be worn, and some I am going to give away to bless someone else.
I am a blessed woman! I always have what I need, and sometimes don't even realize it. Our perspective in this country is soooo skewed....some of us think we are living in poverty, and really....we are RICH!
