I just love the show What Not to Wear. I love Stacey. She tells it like it is. I love the guests, who seem so shy and timid at the beginning, but just shine at the end.
And then one day I was reading the story of the Prodigal Son, and it struck me that it's a big What Not to Wear episode. There's a lot about clothes. There's a lot about transformations. And grace. And accepting grace.
And as much as God wants to give it, we have to be the ones to accept it, just as those women have to accept the makeover. Accepting can be hard, if we've grown accustomed to thinking of ourselves in a certain way. But God doesn't want us limited; He wants us to live a big life with Him.
So if you're stuck, and you need a pick-me-up, listen in to this quick podcast of the makeover that God wants to do in our lives--and that we need to accept!
It's an analogy I talk about a lot in my speaking, and I'll be focusing my talk this Friday night for Women at the Well on this story! It's a lot of fun, and I wanted to share it with you, my regular visitors, too!
