Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony.”

Colossians 3:14

I’m not a very fashionable person. I love clothes as much as the next woman, but I struggle with pairing patterns, prints and colours together. I try and keep it simple with dresses that don’t need to be matched with anything, and subtle, neutral colours. Kudos to all you women out there who excel in the fashion department!

There is an article of clothing though that we all should be brilliant at putting on, and that is love. This scripture tells us to “clothe ourselves with love” The message translation tells us to “wear love” for it is our “basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.”

Love works in all seasons of life. Whether the sun is shining and life is good, or things have taken a turn for the worst. Sincere, compassionate, genuine love will never go out of style!

Love changes situations and hearts.

Love heals and restores.

Love forgives and is able to move on.

Lord, help me to love others and myself as you love others and as you love me. Help me to see with eyes of compassion, and to have a heart that is fuelled by your love.

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. (Romans 8:17) Pain and suffering are inevitable. As long as we are alive on this earth we will encounter pain. Most people do…

How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery: (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ). (Ephesians 3:3-4) How do we get to know God? It comes through daily reading the Bible and prayer.…
