Hey ladies! Today I am going to pour my little fashion crisis heart out.
As I have been focusing more on being modest and trying to keep all things “trendy”, I found myself in a “Fashion rut”. I feel like I do more filtering out my closet than putting things back in. You would think that winter time wouldn’t be so difficult being modest because it’s cold and we usually cover up from head to toe. This has been super hard for me. I told God that I am not trying to complain, but every time I look in my closet I see the same thing. Now, how is “Miss Versatile” lacking diversity in her wardrobe?
This is me BEFORE God started working and transitioning me into becoming the modesty Proverbs 31 Woman He designed me to be! – click to Read about THE Proverbs 31 woman!
I realized that I put too much thought into what I am wearing and not enough into being satisfied with just me. I’ve expressed it many times that being modest in appearance is a heart and mind thing. We have to first love ourselves and who God created us before we begin to fall in love with something we’re putting on. I never want to cover up who Ashlee is, but expose my love for myself and God through my wardrobe. Therefore no matter what I wear how I feel about myself does not change. I believe this would put an end to purchasing items then a month down the line it’s still tagged, then bagged and shipped to the goodwill. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about donating, but when the issue is not being satisfied with self, there’s a problem.
This feelings of insecurity; not wanting to leave the house, look at myself, or waste money on something I like in the dressing room, but can’t stand at home; has been a direct result of me not clothing myself in humility and strength. God showed me long ago how not loving or liking “me” was an act of pride. I was telling Him that He made a mistake when creating me. How do you, the creation, tell the creator He went wrong. Today I am choosing to line my mind, my heart, and my outward appearance up with the Word of God!
Proverbs 31:25 (NLT) “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” When I feel down I have to remember I am a Proverbs 31 woman! I am strong because my Father is strong, I can walk in confidence and humility.
Isaiah 52:1(KJV) Awake, Awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. How can we apply these scriptures to our lives? Well, we are the temples of God, walking Houses of PrayerJ. We have to be set apart by our wardrobe, set apart by our lifestyles, but most of all set apart by our way of thinking. People should look at us and see different, talk to us and know that we are different. No matter what ladies, put on your beautiful garment from inside out and allow God to light up your paths!
You are beautiful…Walk in it completely!
