Issues I have struggled with.....resolved! Amen!

Previously, as I am sure other Christian women have, I struggled with verses in scripture that some say mean that women should wear dresses/skirts, shouldn't wear make up and shouldn't cut their hair. Do I like to wear skirts...yes, I do! All the time....noooo! I like to be feminine and love skirts and aprons and I am a VERY modest person. However, I do also enjoy the comfort and dressing of jeans and capris as well. For a while, I struggled with this...thinking "is this a sin?" "am I am abomination to God"??? It stressed me out horribly!

I prayed about it and as I continue to lose weight....I will wear skirts more...I do love how feminine that make me feel and just love them in general. However, I feel God really set a peace in my heart about all this. I don't dress manly. I am 100% woman. I dress modestly and am totally in the appearance of looking as the woman God created me to be. I wear jeans and still look feminine. I actually feel more modest in jeans as there is more covering....especially when the wind blows! For a very good and detailed explanation...I couldn't have said it any better to why women are OK wearing HERE.

I also read interpretations of scripture that say a woman should not cut her hair. I started to panic. I thought "gosh....all of my life I have been getting hair cuts!!! I am sinning without even realizing it". But again...I was stressing over it for no reason. Click HERE to read why it's OK!!!

And then...another fantastic little article including the wearing of make up...can be found HERE.

These words by the author of those articles portray how I feel as well! He put into words things I felt but didn't know how to say! I welcome your thoughts and comments...but this post is not up for debate. I don't want to get into an argument. I think women who wear dresses all the time and such are fantastic! I don't sit in judgement at all. I just wanted to share why I am still a 100% Godly woman in love with Jesus and my God and still feel it's OK to wear pants!!! :)

I hope you all are having a fantastic day!!! xoxo


  1. Bless your heart! I'm so glad that you thought it out, prayed it out, studied it out, and found peace about what you wear out. ~smile~


  2. Hi Katy
    Glad you found those words re-assuring. I did too. I am just so much more comfy and myself wearing jeans. If I wear skirts or dresses I immediately change into jeans when I get home.

  3. I am so glad you posted this, I too have come across alot of blogs that talked about women wearing only dresses, what I always wondered was in the days of the Bible the men wore long cloaks, which look like dresses and it always confused me!! So thanks for the links I read them and am glad its ok to be who I feel God has made me!! Take care!~Wendy

  4. I think the most important thing we can wear is something that is modest--pants, capris, shirts,skirts, swimwear, dresses, etc. It is a challenge these days to find modest clothing for teenagers--I have two, and we search and search. Thanks for the post and the insight. It is wonderful to know such good women!!! julie

  5. when are you starting homeschooling?

  6. I agree with ya! soo cool to read this in blog land...usually on homeschooling/christian blogs....I see a lot of legalism.


I am always so grateful to read your comments! I thank you for the time you took to visit and share your thoughts with me. :o)
May you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend!
Warmly, Katy
