You may or may not know by now that I don't usually think the way other people think. I hear something and it gets my mind thinking in a totally different direction. I don't often pay much attention to those award shows. The reason? I think movie stars are given more attention and power than they deserve and I grow weary of hearing, "Who are you wearing?" Who cares, really?
Then I heard Gayle King, (CBS) later remark that she had on a "re-wear."
Hmmmm, odd term. Re-wear. In the movie star world you never wear a dress twice. Instead you wear a "designer dress", something made especially for you. It is unique. It has status. It provides recognition. A designer dress is something that makes a statement about who you are.
Okay, here's my leap of thought.
All of us have a "designer dress." It was designed with you in mind. It shows off your best side. It has a purpose. It is beautiful. It is unique. It makes a statement. Provides recognition. Makes an impact. So what is your "designer dress?" It is your authentic identity! Created by Creator God to define you, equip you and propel you into destiny.
Seldom do we wear it. For our designer dress gets covered over by circumstances, actions against us, things we tell ourselves and things others say about us. We walk clothed in a "re-wear."
So, I'm thinking, it's not cool to wear a re-wear. The people who walk in their designer dress get admiration; even awards! That's what I'm talking about! Decided: I'm going to continue to do the work of Restoration - to uncover who I was designed to be!
I'm going to wear my designer dress today! And be on the lookout for my academy award. Maybe someone will even come up to me and ask, "Who are you wearing?"
