Worldly Distractions. A Post for Teens.

We have all been there. Walking through a store, Flipping through a magazine, Then you see it!
But what? what do you see that distracts you? could it be something you cannot wear? something you wish you could? in the world today we have that problem. Distractions from the world, though we find it hard, we stay strong. As Striving (to be) Godly Young Ladies and Ladies. We have that distraction of pretty patterns a little bit shorter (not mini skirt) of skirts or dresses.

We all have that problem, going into a store and being discouraged, asking yourself "why cant I find anything?"

There is nothing wrong with you of course, it is what is wrong with the world, what we have come to with providing teens with little rags of clothing with sparkles and sequins on it and calling it clothing, calling it trendy, fashionable, the "IT" item of clothing, a must have. These my fellow readers are why we cannot go into stores and find something, yes sometimes in different stores,and yes  in   different parts of the country you can find nice clothing. That is for the wrong price.


Problem: When you can go to a store and get a huge shopping bags for under $150 of the in clothing, but to buy long skirts or modest shirts. You wouldn't even get a half a huge shopping bag....

Sadly some young ladies (No I'm not pointing names) compromise when going to the store or the mall.
Some sadly go and compromise just a little "Oh that skirt is a little short I'll just put some leggings under it" or "that shirt is a bit sheer, but it's okay no one will notice, if I only wear it on certain days"

If it's wrong for your mother it's wrong for you!
Yes, I just said that, you should be able to wear anything your mother wears, not size wise or anything like that, but I'm talking about, those shorter skirts that go to your knees, and those dresses that go to your knees and beyond. Do you think your mother should wear them? Of course not! If you are dressing modest, of course Your mother should be able to wear anything you do correct?

  • Sheer Shirts.
  • Tight Shirts.
  • Skirts that hug the knees.
  • Skirts above the knees.

Skirts That hug the knees....Ah yes, they modest christian young ladies cry for freedom, for normal-ess, and for trendiness. "Maybe no one will think I'm a freak if I dress in this short of a skirt, I can still wear it and be modest." Wrong.

Let me ask you something. Do you really want to be sitting down having to tug at your skirts? what about boys and young men, and ALSO older men as well, looking at your legs?!?! To me that is disgusting, You cannot be Modest and Modern there is no sentence that should ever have those to words right next to each other. Would you really like Men lusting after you?

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.


Matthew 5:28

Let's not forget.

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body,

that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Romans 6:12


What ladies are doing is lusting after the worldly clothing, imagine if we could buy beautiful dresses and skirts and stores were filled only with dresses and skirts? "Wonderland" right?
Well ladies we cannot have that. The world is getting it's way with sin, provoking the minds of modest young christian shoppers, filling the isles with immodest wear.

Let me tell you something it is better to not buy anything at a store then to waste money and buy a few things, that should not have been bought, I'm not judging you, I'm speaking the clear, the obvious, the truth.
Not to hurt you, not to offend you. To help you!

I'm speaking from a loving point to you, I know what it is like to go into the store and find nothing but clothing I cannot wear, its sad. I want to make a point, I want to stretch the point of not buying something, if its not modest.

I know it will be hard, especially for those of you that are just starting out to wear skirts and dresses. People will look at you, some will give smiles and some will give bad looks, some will be offended, but my advice to you is to stay strong in the Lord. You are supposed to be looking to please the Lord correct? You don't need to please anyone, at your age unmarried. The only one you should be looking to please is the Lord!

You need to be pleasing the Lord, not Men. Do not live for men, live for God. This life is going to get you down, Stay Strong.

This Post is dedicated to all the girls that have trouble finding modest clothing, to all the girls that are new to wearing dresses and skirts only.


Blessings,
Katie
