I liked bling bling shiny things. Haughty gaudy statement pieces that were so large, they weighed me down. It was a curse of vanity. I was to take up my cross and follow the Lord, instead I followed the crowd on fashion blvd. There were always things I needed to complete a look. Accessories galore at one point I was nicknamed by my ex husband the accessorizer. I had the special power to build a whole outfit with just a pair of shoes.
Moving was always harder because I had so much to move. Now I know why the Lord had the israelites only wear one pair of shoes. They were more kingdom minded. Concerned about the will of God then what they had on. When he said go they went even if he had to depart the red sea to bring them through. Imagine if they had luggage how hard that would have been to do.
Each time I fasted to seek God for error in my life he would show me. I was becoming superficial letting things rule over me. I had a friend tell me when I moving into a new place, wow that’s a heavy load to carry. It looks like a burden for you. She said that because I had my arms full of clothes on hangers walking down three flights of stairs.
The Lord would lead me through piles of clothes shoes have bags jewelry showing me what I could keep. All the fades were neon riped jeans and stuff that screamed look at me. All of those things had to go. Then he made it easy for me he told me I was royalty I was to wear what royals would wear.1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
1 Timothy 2:9 9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
I started studying how the royals dressed. They were simple and elegant. Their presence made heads turn in a room. Always modest never showing too much skin. Their clothing was tailored to fit them just right. My grand father coached me as a young woman. He would say Christina darling always have your clothes tailored to fit you right. Shop in Wallachs they will tailor your clothes for you. This was the name of Talbot’s before they changed names. He told me you wear too many clothes black brown or white. Add some color but nothing too bright. He influenced me in such a positive way I started to shop in stores like Nordstrom’s that would not only tailor but press your clothes too.
Royals clothes were never faded or looked over worn. Everything looked structured and looked new. My Aunt never shopped in a thrift store her whole life. She said I don’t want to walk in someone else’s shoes. It wasn’t to be well to do. It was a standard of life being well groomed. Never wear stained or dirty clothes. Always brush you hair and teeth.
The one thing I studied about royals that stuck out the most. They don’t wear colored nail polish. Or long unnatural nails. They are very natural no hair extensions or heavy make up. Just plain and simple and look at them they are beautiful naturally. Are you a royal priesthood? Shouldn’t you.loom the part?
