So today, I just want to be real.
You know how sometimes you find a skirt, dress or even a cute shirt that is 1) is absolutely gorgeous 2) Unique in every way 3) ON SALE! Then you go to try it on and, dun, dun, dun, it fits toooo skin tight or toooo short, however, it looks really great on you because your beautiful lady figure is showing. C’mon ladies, we know we are beautiful. It’s almost so tempting to buy it, so everyone can see how gorgeous we really look. It’s something in human nature to “show off” what we’ve got. But that’s when Jesus comes in. His spirit in us, shows us that it’s not about us, but about honouring him. He helps all that pride and vanity in us dissipate. However, it’s true, sometimes our human nature kicks in and we are tempted into wearing things that are immodest.
What I wanted to express with this post is that, yes we are girls who love God and want to please him in every way, but we can be real and say that there will be times in which we will be tempted to lower our standards, because we live in a “low standards” world! However, always, always, always, think twice before you go ahead and do something you will regret! Sometimes it will just be out of frustration that we can hardly find clothing that is suitable for our needs and we will go with whatever we find “half-decent” out of frustration. But there are ways to work around making things “half-decent” - decent and look absolutely great modestly.
Stand strong and remember that one of the fruits of the spirit is Self-Control, use it freely, as there is no law against it. - Galatians 5:22-23.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. – Proverbs 31:30
