What Not to Wear!

July 21, 2015 — Leave a comment

“I read the other day if you dress lovely, you attract love and if you dress sexy you will attract sex,” Are you dressing attractively or to attract?  What message are you sending to others and to the young ladies around you that you influence?

My biggest hope and prayer is that I express to my grandgirls they don’t have to look like what the world believes to be beautiful.  The world looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart.   

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”(Psalms 51:10, NIV)

Dressing modestly doesn’t mean frumpy.  WE are to be above reproach.

“Be careful, however, that the exercise of your freedom does not become a stumbling block to the weak.” (1 Corinthians 8:9, NIV)

“Do you no know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own; you were bought at a price.  Therefore, honor God with your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20, NIV)

We want to ask ourselves a few questions:

  • Is what’s on the outside really what’s on the inside?
  • Why is modesty important (realize the male perspective on flash or revealing clothing)?
  • As believers, where do we stand?

You may be wondering why I’m discuss “What Not to Wear”, when as Christian’s we face far more pressing issues.   Love Heart, this is meant to encourage you to examine this issue in the light of God’s word-prayerfully.  Put aside all bias and ask yourself…have I followed this world without any conviction?

Examining myself and believing that God would have me to be “set apart”!  ~Debra

For every dilemma, every anxiety, every attraction, every conflict, every sin in my life, there is a deliverer~Jesus Christ!

Thank You, Lord, for your sacrifice, your love, your forgiveness, your mercy, your grace.  The way you reach down and pull me up when I’m not focused.  

I ask for forgiveness and your guidance to stay sure-footed on the Rock of my Salvation and not fall into the pit of the world and all its enticements.  Help me to be God centered, not me centered.
Let me give you total control of my life! ~Deb

We Are…

th (6)“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven”  Matthew 5:14-16

 

We are the light of the world!~Debra

thHave you ever heard the saying “Stop and smell the roses?”  In this fast pace world we live in, we fail to see the beauty that surrounds us.  Look around and see a glimpse of the power, majesty, and glory of His creation. 

Matthew 6:28-29 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Psalms 104:1-35 Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent. He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters; he makes the clouds his chariot; he rides on the wings of the wind; he makes his messengers winds, his ministers a flaming fire. He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved. …(ESV)

“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”  (2 Corinthians 5:20, NIV)
