I lead a Bible Study Group on Thursday mornings, and we have been studying the life of David. If you are familiar with the story of David (found in 2 Samuel), you know that it can be very intense at times. This has brought up some difficult conversations in the group (and outside it too). A big theme in my life, after struggling with sin for a long time, is modesty. I truly believe that personal modesty is relative to your life circumstances/experiences, and will differ from person to person. I have friends and family who are convicted about wearing pants, and never wear them. I also have friends who think pants are more modest than skirts. I tried to follow what was expected of me (by other people) for a long time. Partly out of respect. I think it is a tough line to walk. The Word says we are "In this world, but not of it." I love that the blog-o-sphere is full of other girls just like me- who love God and want to honor Him. I am a student of the Bible, but I am also a real person and make mistakes (often). I love fashion and home decor, but I don't want it to be my life. I want it to be a part of the puzzle. I hope that the things I say and do lead back to the work that Christ has done in my heart. And that work is on-going.
