I came up with a new idea the other day, and I think I’m just going to run with it! I’ve realized that I have SO much that I want to share with you, but sometimes it’s just a quick thought here and there.
So….I’m going to start doing Super Short Sunday posts! This is just a time for me to be candid with ya and share what’s been on my mind, what I’ve been learning, and what I’ve been doing that’s been working. Will you pretty please comment below and let me know what you think of the idea?? Love it or hate it, I want to know!
Now, the topic for today…modesty.
The more that I dig into God’s Word on how to be the best woman and wife that I can be…the more that my desire to dress modestly increases. I find myself dressing in looser fitting, more conservative gym clothes and really paying attention to what parts of my body are showing in photos and videos. Ya know, in case I’m holding the camera too high 😉
That all sounds great, right?
Totally! But that doesn’t mean that it’s easy. Everywhere I go, I’m faced with women that don’t share these same thoughts. And while I know that I’m so beautiful in God’s eyes, I can’t help feeling frumpy and out of place next to these tightly-clothed women. I run a million thoughts through my mind of how great it is that I’m honoring my husband and the Lord with my modesty, but the insecurity doesn’t subside…yet.
This post is for me AND the woman digging deeper into what it means to be modest and dress modestly. I know how naked you can feel when you go against the grain and cover up. I know how your self-confidence and beauty can seem to take a hit. I know how it can feel like you’re not desirable anymore to your husband. I’m there right now, girlfriend.
Let’s go to God with this THE MOMENT we feel this way. If you’re in the store, stop right there and pray. If you’re in the gym, turn on worship music and let Him fill you with peace. You’re not naked; you’re clothed in His grace. You can have confidence in Christ and know that He sees a beautiful treasure when He looks at you. And your godly husband will praise you when he sees the godly woman inside of you growing stronger each day.
It’s hard in this society we live in, but we aren’t called to do the easy. Love you, girl!
