GOD PAUSE: Well, guess what the first thing I heard when I woke up this morning? Or I should say the first person I heard. Believe or not, it was God. A friend sent me this Bible verse found in Colossians 3:12. “You are always and dearly loved by God! So robe yourself with virtues of God, since you have been divinely chosen to be holy. Be merciful as you endeavor to understand others, and be compassionate, showing kindness toward all. Be gentle and humble, unoffendable in your patience with others.” So God says to me --- and to you --- first thing this morning “I love You, now get dressed for the day.” Dear Papa, may we put on the clothing of You today as we go about our day. That's what people need to see and experience. Amen and amen.
