My first blog on theleahjournal.com is about dressing to impress.
Yes, we should dress to impress. With the abundance of fashion blogs and sites I understand that many do dress to impress. The thing is many have their mind on impressing those of the world. Their boss, the new boy in school, the cute waiter at a restaurant, and even those online who may peruse their social media pages. When, in all reality, our minds should be on impressing our Heavenly Father. First, and foremost, HE is the one who matters the most.
Secondly, we should dress to impress those who look up to us and those we come into contact with. Not by wearing expensive things that show our bodies, but by wearing things that show our love and respect for the word of God. There’s nothing wrong with wearing designer clothes as long as they are modestly styled.
My first set of lessons on this site are about godly examples. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have someone talk about you as a godly example? As someone who adheres to the word of God? As someone who dresses modestly and let’s your inner light shine instead of your outward appearance? #goals
We need to understand that we belong to God. Read that again. We belong to God. We do not own our bodies. God does. That should make you WANT to cover it up.
See 1 Corinthians 6:19-20:
1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
I pray these thoughts of mine touch your heart and, if you are someone who dresses immodestly, you will change your style.
With Christian Love,
