He Can Change YOU & Contest Info

I was meditating on a few of my friends and was amazed at truly how God has the power to transform and change people.

Sometimes we may doubt the power of God to change a person but He truly can. All it takes is an open heart. One of the ladies from our church said before, “sometimes we may say, I want to see miracles, not realizing that we ourselves are miracles of God”. Think about it, if you hadn’t had an encounter with the almighty, a breaking point in his presence, you would not be the changed person you are today.

I love to see how some of my friends had a completely different view of modesty a few years or months back and how God has changed their mindset and in turn changed their wardrobe. It may have taken time, but they allowed God’s word and his presence convict them on these things. Truly modesty is the type of thing that you can teach to people (and we should) but only God can move us to make changes in our lifestyle that have been there for years!  It’s lovely to see before and after pictures.

If you are still struggling with Modesty. Have an open heart, let God guide you to choosing the right wardrobe. Think about the things you wear and the reasons behind why you do, examine your heart and ask God to speak to you and guide you to making choices that HE agrees with.  Don’t think it’s impossible to change and don’t try to rush things either. Let it be a gradual change, start with little things, leaving things behind or adding things to your wardrobe here and there. Celebrate the small things you accomplish and soon enough, you will be at the level where you have desired to be. Sometimes our struggles with modesty come because we want to rush the change and we ourselves are in the process of changing inside. I’m not saying the desire to change is bad, it’s absolutely good but I’m saying that in most cases it does take time to flip our lives around and if we try to rush it, we may just end up discouraged and back to point zero.

So those are my thoughts today! I’m thankful for the powerful testimonies I’ve been a witness too. How God can change a life around from inside to the out, all He needs is a willing and open heart.

Modest Girl of the Week: Erika

This week we bring you the beautiful and talented Lady Erika, All the way from Texas! Enjoy.

Name: Erika M

Age: 28 years

Ministries: Worship Leader, Sunday School teacher, Youth Secretary, Church Administrative Assistant

Dressing Modestly since: 1992

Anything you would like to say about Modesty?

Modesty or living Holy for God is what God has always wanted from us Since the beginning. When Eve and Adam sinned for the first time they immediately sewed an apron made of fig leaves, a very poor garment and the easiest to find. That's when we see God had to show them the right way to dress. The word of God says in Gen. 3:21...the LORD God made coats of skins, and clothed them.

And the same thing happens nowadays, people will go to the mall and buy the easiest and fastest things to find because that's the the kind of clothes everyone is dressing in. But God's ways are not the easiest or the fastest, we must pray to the Lord before we go shopping, for him to show us what He has for us today! The Lord will go high quality, modest and inexpensive clothes! In other words, He will bless you because you put Him in first place.

My daily trend is feeling proud and great - that's the root of looking great. Modesty is reflecting God outwards and inwards.

Thank you Erika for sharing your thoughts with us! Sister Ericka also has a Youtube Channel where she shares unique hairstyles for ladies with the Curlies. Subcribe to her channel.

Social Media vs The Creator – Jesus Wins, by Far!

Hey, Social Media, Did you know I am fearfully and wonderfully made by God?

I absolutely hate how the enemy has empowered social media to make women feel ugly! I want to tell you right now, you are beautiful. Most of those pictures you see in magazines, TV, internet, are not a real images, they are fixed up images of people who have no moral standards whatsoever. And even if they are true images, they are a result of the influence of an industry that makes you do anything in your power to “look the part” or else you won’t make it in that industry. It’s an industry full of vanity, lustfulness, and selfishness (all things which don’t please God). They are being used by the enemy just to complete his purpose of making the younger generation of girls, lose their moral standards, lose self-esteem and in the end lose their faith in God because HE didn’t make them “beautiful enough”. I’m sick and tired of hearing stories of girls who go through strenuous exercise routines, just to get “model skinny” there’s even a movement a friend showed me on Pinterest that encourages you to be skinny and not for health reasons. There are so many girls out there with anorexia and bulimia stories, it’s unbelievable. Don’t you get it? That’s just the enemies goal. If he deals with the younger generation, than what is of the generations to come?  Don’t be fooled ladies, what social media says is true beauty is not even real.

If reading these fashion magazines makes you feel upset about yourself, maybe that’s a sign for you to not read it! For one, when I was in my teens, reading those fashion magazines was “in” so I’d pick up a copy from friends, here and then. It’s so amazing how the enemy can enwrap you into longing to be something like the magazines. Wow. I would feel like I would never be that pretty, I could never wear that clothes and look good.  Because the images they present you are so fake but yet you feel like that’s how they really look and that’s what beauty is, and if you don’t look like that, you will never find a decent partner! But thank God that the Lord took me away from that mentality and showed me what truly a beautiful women is.
When I see women dress modestly and I get to know them and I can truly see the love of God in their heart. It’s like this beauty you can’t explain. It’s so beautiful to me. It’s like they have this glow to them. A certain Glory. : ) You overcome any physical beauty and see something that is so pure and lovely. Only the grace of God. And I’ve heard comments from non-believers (men and women) comment on how beautiful apostolic women are and that there’s a certain attraction to them! It’s the glory of God, I tell you! Reflected in who we are, because we are pleasing the most high in every aspect of our lives.

So, stop thinking you need to be like the next cover girl etc. You don’t. Work with the modest clothing you got and be creative, check out some hairstyling tips on YouTube, check that your soul is in tune with the holy spirit and you will be noticed and distinguished as a child of the King. Trust me! You don’t need to do much to be beautiful, you are beautiful, as the child of the Most high! You don’t need to plaster your face with makeup to be beautiful, In the end that would not even really be you! Don’t hide the beautiful face God has given to you. Let Christ be seen in you. Not this fake truth the enemy tries to portray.

And WARNING this might not be the last article I write on this topic, sometimes we all need a reminder.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalms 139:14 (NIV)
Found this on Pinterest. Felt it was appropriate for this article. Reflect your life on the Word and you will see true beauty!

New Years Modest Outfit Wish

So November is already here! Can you believe it!!??!?! This year has flown by so quickly. But with November being here, it got me thinking about my new year’s outfit! Ha ha ha, seems like I’m in a hurry for this year to be over. So not true or maybe? I’m anticipating great new things in the new year.  I came across these beautiful items on Pinterest. And I thought, this outfit would be perfect for the new year’s celebration service (I figured I can get away with wearing a Tulle skirt at New Years – maybe…lol). Not sure how great this would actually look on me, but I would love to have these things. Lol…Have you thought about your new year’s outfit yet? Are you following me on Pinterest yet? Follow me and I’ll follow you, we can share inspirational modest finds. J
If you know me, you know I have a weakness for ruffles and details on my clothing. I absolutely love this sweater!!! I might just make one, although it will not be the same, but I'm content with something similar! :)
This skirt is absolutely cute. I would take off the bow to wear it with the ruffle sweater above. A good evening/fancy party look which you can't always pull off for Sunday service, which is why I'm thinking new years. LOL....I think I could make a skirt like this maybe with less thickness.
And for shoes, I like these! to go with the outfit!! :)
So this is what I have planned to re-create an outfit. Wish me luck. This may or may not happen. lol...At least I already have similar shoes. A girl can dream right?!?!
