what you "wear"

have you noticed a lot of what the Bible says about "clothing" has little to do with physical, but usually the spiritual? Like in Isaiah we are to choose a "garment of praise". This is really practical because I picture going through my closet and getting rid of the old, torn garments of deep sadness and a broken spirit and filling each hanger with "garments" words of praise. The best part is that it works!

"Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come...
You are worthy, our Lord and God,
To receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being" from Revelation 4
"Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom
and strength and honor and glory and praise! Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!"

try reading that...sitting quietly before the Lord...picture kneeling before the King of Kings one day in humble worship...and see if you can still be mad or keep that bad mood :)
