Bible Verse OTD: Be Happy

Matthew 5:45

So that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil 

and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”                                                                                                        ― Mother Teresa

“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.” 

                                                                                                ― Martin Luther King Jr.

Modest Skirts

Hello dear sisters in Christ, I hope you all are having a very blessed day. Today I wanted to share with you all my opinions on skirt lengths and what I find to be the most modest and biblical

Mini Skirt: 
Thigh is defined as "nakedness" in the Bible, in a mini skirt the entire upper leg is exposed which is not only immodest but also a stumbling block to our brothers in Christ. 

 "You are to make linen undergarments for them to cover their naked flesh, and they are to reach
from the loins to the thighs."  Exodus 28:42
Printed denim mini skirt
Calf Skirt : I find this length to be Biblical and modest.  Make sure however upon sitting that your knees or your thigh is exposed as that would be no better than wearing a mini skirt.

Ankle Length Skirt: My favorite and most modest, and most "Christian looking" in my opinion. remember sisters we are to set apart from the world not striving to look like it.  
These are the reasons I like ankle length skirts.

1. A wind could blow, yes I'm being serious I've seen many ladies even in modest skirts been thrown up by a strong gust of wind (which is also why I advice ladies to wear something under there skirts. ) however when a wind blows for me my skirt only tangles around my legs rather than exposing them.

2. I find having my entire leg covered is more modest then just most of. believe it or not women's legs ARE a stumbling block for men and I find it more modest to cover my whole leg.

3. More comfortable: I love ankle length skirts, they are comfy and warm and if worn in cotton they can be very cooling in the summer. 

God bless dear sisters I hope this article has blessed you in some way.

I'm Not Comfortable!

Hello dear sisters! Today I wanted to share with you one of the most common excuses regarding why women don't dress modestly "I'm not comfortable". I have heard this over and over, how women aren't comfortable in a skirt or with their shirts rubbing up against their collar bones ect. ect. Let me ask you something dear sisters, was Christ comfortable getting beaten? Was Christ comfortable on the cross? I don't think so, we CAN follow His word whether were afraid of not fitting in or just don't like modest skirts. Now I'm not saying we should intentionally purchase clothing that makes us uncomfortable, and there are many ways to make modest clothing more comfortable (I'll get to that). But our main focus when dressing is:

Is this modest? 1 Timothy 2:9  Likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable 
apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire,

How does this reflect on the Lord? Romans 6:1-3  What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

Will this cause my brothers in Christ to stumble?   1 Corinthians 8:9  But take care that this right of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. Matthew 5:28  But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Am I dressed in a flashy attention grabbing style? 1 Timothy 2:10 and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.

Our lives as Christian women should be about doing everything we can for the Lord, He gave his own life for us! 

There are ways to make modest clothing more comfortable:
1. Wear leggings, bloomers, panty-hose whatever helps keeps your legs from rubbing together.
2. Wear softer materials.
3. Make sure your clothing is loose enough (tight clothing has allows been uncomfortable for me)

So sisters let us remember that in this life we are to strive to do God's will, it may not always be comfortable it may not always be fun, it may not always be what our flesh wants us to do, but in the end it IS what God wants us to do. God bless dear sisters!

Bible Verse OTD: Music

Ephesians 5:19 

Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to 

the Lord with your heart,

Psalm 105:2 

Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!

Of all the music that reached farthest into heaven, it is the beating of a loving heart.
                                                                                                 ~Henry Ward Beecher

Modesty And Courtship

Hello dear sisters! I hope you all are having a blessed day, it's been a little while since I made a post and today I wanted to share with you all my thoughts on modesty and how it relates to courtship. Modesty plays a role in courtship in many ways. 

1. Most importantly it helps attract the right man: Dressing modestly is sure to attract the right man because an ungodly man isn't going to want someone who cares about modesty, they have no standards for it and see no reason for it.

2. It helps him keep pure thoughts: Even after you have agreed to courting, you still want to keep pure thoughts (your not married just yet). you don't want to a stumbling block to your courting friend.

1 Corinthians 8:13 

Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never eat meat, lest I make my brother 


3. It helps let him know you are a Christian lady: Even before he talks to you, if a woman is dressed in a Christian fashion she will attract a Christian man to her, someone with dignity and class that is looking for a dedicated Christian women to court.  
4. More respect: a man is much more likely to show a lady dressed in a classy and non-revealing style more respect than he would a women who's letting it all hang out. 

5. Want to know you for you and not your body: remember dear brothers and sisters looks fade, don't go head over heels for someone simply because there handsome or pretty, people get older and we need to fall in love with whats on the inside as that will never go away. 
Matthew 5:28

But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with 
her in his heart

Remember sisters and brothers it is a sin to have lustful thoughts about someone other than your spouse, let us all strive to have pure thoughts and have a healthy courtship. And please dear sisters don't lower your standards! If a man is trying to change your or asking you to wear revealing clothing before marriage kick him to the curb, he isn't a real Christian and isn't interested in you, just your body and ALL women deserve better than that. God bless dear sisters and brothers!

Self Righteous Wife

Found this wonderful post on another Christians blog and thought I'd share it with you all. God bless sisters! 

I've spoken to newly married girlfriends who have shared their frustrations with their new spouse. There is generally some area that the women wish their husbands would improve on, and they are growing weary waiting. We generally come to the same conclusion---their husbands may need to grow, but perhaps the wives are struggling with being judgmental and self-righteous. We can look at our men, see sin, and be too quick and eager to point it out.

Tongue for Blessing and Cursing

Growing in Grace

Stop And Smell The Roses

Life can be so crazy, we worry too much, rush through the motions and never stop to just take in how beautiful the day is. Stop for a moment dear brothers and sisters, take a deep breath and look around you, count your blessing, they are bound to be plentiful. Look outside at the beautiful day whether the sun is shinning, pure snow is falling or rain is knocking on the ceiling God has made this day a beautiful wonderful, blessing filled day. God bless everyone!    

Psalm 33:5

He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.

Bible Verse OTD: God Is With Us

Matthew 28:20

Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to 

the end of the age.”

Hebrews 13:5

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will 

never leave you nor forsake you.”

Romans 8:38-39

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to 

come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate 

us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
