I wore this outfit out and about and I really love it. It might be a small thing, but I never thought of replacing the matching fabric belt that came with my e-shakti skirt with a normal belt. I just love the way it looks! Do you ever have those times that an outfit pops into your head and you just feel so put together? It is interesting the way I felt so much more confident than normal in this outfit. I just felt so comfortable in my own skin and how I looked in the outfit. I found myself walking, head high, confident in who I was and with the heels, I felt like I was one of the leading ladies from an old movie. Donna Reed or Jean Arthur anyone? This outfit is just so me! Colors, silhouette, everything!
I was quoting through my memory verses the other night, Psalm 91 to be exact. I got the part where it says “He will give his angels charge over you, to keep you in ALL your ways.” For some reason, the ALL just stuck out to me. And I got to thinking. Wow! I mean, God’s angels keep me in ALL of my ways. Not just some of them, not just the difficult ones, or the easy ones, but in ALL of them! Thank God for that! I feel like we often feel the need to pray and ask God to protect us, or be with us in certain situations, and while this isn’t a bad thing, He already is. He already sent His angels to guard over us.
So I started thinking, God uses these all-encompassing words known as absolutes in the Bible often. Here are some of my favorites.
“As far as the East is from the West, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” There is now way to measure how far the East is from the West ya’ll. It just goes on forever!
“NO weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And EVERY tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.” Isaiah 54:17 NO weapon formed against us! Jesus has already defeated the enemy once and for ALL!
“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath ABOLISHED death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” 2 Timothy 1:9-10 He ABOLISHED death. You can’t get anymore dead and gone than abolished!
