Love your post!! Seeing a woman dressing ONLY to get attention from men is a sign of low self-esteem. Hi Kandi! Thanks for commenting. Nice to 'meet' you. Now that God has transformed me, I am able to dress appropriately and modestly and I no longer feel the need to be "validated" of my beauty by wearing sexy outfits.
God is good! Greetings from Germany: Karin K. Feel free to comment. I would love to discuss things with you. Search This Blog. Modest and Feminine Christian Dressing : - I love being a woman! I had it so very wrong! I just wanted them to look, but they could not touch!
What a tease! This is all embarrassing to admit! But, it needs to be addressed. In , my " fulfilled dreams year ", I worked for a religious network that was owned by and whose employees were largely of a religion different from mine.
I was a devout Catholic by the way, and still am. In this "independent" Christian sect, the women wore their hair long and never had them cut. They were forbidden from wearing jeans, so they always wore long skirts. They too were not allowed to wear makeup and put on jewelry. Coming from my background of always wearing short and tight clothes even during my newscasts, I did not know what I should wear in their TV station!
I did not have skirts that went below my knees!!! Lovely definition, right? I used to think dressing discreetly should only be done at Sunday Mass I always wore long dresses to church. I didn't think it was necessary during most days of the week. I can't explain it, really. I will try though It was as if when the Lord freed me from my bondage of control, He also freed me from my bondage of extreme self-consciousness and desire to be deemed as attractive. Mother of 3 in my then usual get-up- Dec Having lost the abnormal desire to attract attention to how I looked, I now felt happy simply being " fully clothed".
I still wear makeup I don't mind going "bare" though with just a dab of lipstick now and I still wear accessories I don't mind not wearing earrings now though, whereas HUGE earrings were a staple before. I still love wearing very colorful clothing You cannot take that away from me! That, in and by itself is freedom! I still enjoy occasionally wearing comfortably short dresses. I feel so comfortable now in my own skin that I don't feel the need to be validated anymore by showing off skin.
May we all learn to be humble not just in deed , not just in thought , not just in word , but also in appearance. The humility in our hearts should also be seen in our choices of clothes. Oh, and I also now enjoy giving my very high heels their much-needed rest. My feet are happier now too.
