The dress was sewn carefully
it was linen it was white
and then she went to put it on
late one fateful night.
The dress she found could cover
the part that people see
the outside looked so beautiful
what a sight she’d be!
Then she put it all away
and packed it up so nice
and even though she loved the dress
she wondered at it’s price,
for she had spent so much time
sewing night and day,
preparing a dress that would make her feel
young and pretty and gay.
But the truth is that it didn’t
she was still the same inside
and as she went to bed that night
she hung her head and cried.
For she was never thought beautiful
and love she’d never known,
but she hoped someday a man would come
and she’d wear the dress she’d sewn.
As she lay there, she heard a voice
deep inside her heart
that said “come to Me, I am your Savior
I know your inward part.
To Me you are so beautiful
I created you that way
and the love that you are seeking
is found here today.
If you’ll live your life for Me
I’ll change you inside out,
I will conform you to My image
of this there is no doubt.
I promise you will reflect My glory
if in My presence you’ll be,
and when you put on the little white dress
it’s the inside they will see.”
She bowed her head and prayed a prayer
for God to take her sin away
and although nothing seemed to happen
her life began that day.
She found that she had purpose
she found that she had hope
she found that no matter what happened
she had the strength to cope.
The dress that started her on her journey
and had always been kept put away,
is now a dress that she wears proudly
each and every day.
She puts it on for her Savior
to remind her of His love.
To remind her that the only approval she needs
is that from up above.
Now when people see her
the Savior sure was right,
they comment on her radiant face
not the dress of white! ©
