No I don’t mean gear as in driving but in clothing, allthough that fits perfectly in this conversation as well.
Recently I have joined with a walk at home group on line 😊 and because its in front of my television my choice of clothing is very unpredictable 😳. Whatever I have on is what ever I used for the walk and it had been noticed that some of the clothing choice restricted me by their sheer weight.
It so happened that I got some lovely gym clothes on my birthday which literally transformed my little walk. Suddenly it felt just right, I felt light in my movement and most importantly I wanted to do more than the bare minimum.
I remembered the scripture that tells us to put aside the things that easily trip us up. I also got a new understanding of putting on the whole/full armour. There are times where we may need to improvise and use whatever attire we have to exercise but there comes that time where we need to be properly suited.
Physical gear is probably the easiest to rectify, it gets tricky when we look at the right mental gear, the right emotional gear and of course the right spiritual attire. Getting our mind right could mean acknowledging we need help, it might mean retraining or moving out of our comfort zone.
The right emotional gear may require us to show our vulnerabilities, healing can only come when we realise we are in need of it, letting go is easier said than done. Spiritually we have to put on the whole armour if we are going to engage in any battle not surprisingly being true to ourselves seems to be the belt that holds it together.
There appears to be the right gear for every aspect of life that we want to tackle. We need to define what the battle or goal is and then try to suit up appropriately.
For your consideration
