Modest Monday!

blogging and renovations...they don't mix well!

but here I am again to share another Sunday fashion...

this dress was a recent value village find...one of those amazingly halfway decent dresses on its own!

I added a halftee in black, a cute sweater, key necklace and my favourite shoes from Payless!



1 Corinthians 6:20 ~ For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

In my journey towards modesty these verses are very important to me and provide me the ultimate guideline.

The very first thing I have to accept (and this seems to be a hard one) is that ultimately I am not my own. This is the breaking point for many...sadly. You are not your own....in this world that is filled with "lovers of themselves" it is no wonder that we find this pill hard to swallow. We have no rights...at all! God made us from nothing....and then he bought us with his very life again! Our very reason for life is to glorify God and further His kingdom. Most are not going to be able to get past this one...we are selfish beings ruled by selfish desires.

What we do in our bodies matters to God....in this verse it actually comes before your spirit! We often get sidetracked with the thinking that as long as our spirits are right what we do on the outside doesn't really matter so much....if the devil could not trip you up on the first one (we are not our own) he got you on this one!

Over and over in scripture we read that God is very concerned and cares about what we wear.....here are a few verses that indicate clothing as something important to God: Isaiah 61:10, Matthew 6:30, 1 Peter 3:2-3, Matthew 11:7-9, Proverbs 7:10, Zechariah 13:4, Zephaniah 1:8.

Come away from the debates on definite articles of clothing....open your heart to God...search the Scriptures....allow God to show you what He thinks and then I know He will show you His will on clothing and give you a standard and guidelines to follow.

Make no mistake...It matters!

YOU matter to Him!

In Christ from my heart to yours!
