Robe of righteousness

“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness;
He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you;
He is the beauty to which you are so attracted..” Pope John Paul 11

I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God!
For He has dressed me with the clothing of salvation
and draped me in a robe of righteousness.
I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels.
Isaiah 61 v 10
.
We sit and absorb the beauty of Jesus.
We sit in reverence and awe,
as we rest in the beauty of His holiness.
His beauty covers us as a pure and shimmering robe.
When the Father looks on us, He no longer sees our shortcomings,
for they have been replaced by the robe of Jesus’ righteousness.
When the Father looks on us now, He sees the beauty of Jesus.
