Faithful Highlights

Highlights are details or events we pick out and emphasize as being important, the best part, exciting or interesting (Merriam-Webster). God blesses us each day we are alive; with every breath we take. This is a result of His grace and mercy.

Faithful Highlights

Quite often we talk about how faithful we are to God (or should be). Let’s take time each day to dwell on how faithful He is to us. When we do this, we remember faithful highlights — those events in our lives where we say,“God showed up and showed out!” What are we really saying? God manifested His power and presence in a spectacular way — to us. Without a doubt salvation is one of the most spectacular and life changing events. Maybe another faithful highlight was healing, deliverance, breaking an addiction, provision, sparing our lives, mending a broken heart, etc.

The children of Israel definitely had some faithful highlights, most notably their deliverance out of Egypt by the hand of the One Almighty and Living God. We tend to rehearse our faithful highlights. They are our testimonies. Keeping them in the forefront helps us to stay in a place of gratitude. God is great, and He is worthy of all the praise.

What about you? How has God proven His faithfulness in your life?

Fashion Collage: Shine in Color & Boldness

Sometimes we are not as bold as we should be when it comes to living out this Christian walk of love and faith. Other times, we become intimidated by the world and hold back words to witness to a dying generation that Jesus saves.

The Apostle Paul asked for prayer, that while he was in bonds as an ambassador of Jesus Christ, he might speak boldly…as he should.

 Ephesians 6:19 And [pray] for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

We should or ought to speak boldly when it comes to God’s Word. There is no reason for us to fear or be ashamed of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.

Whether we work in the realm of fashion, art, music, natural or behavioral sciences, mathematics or a vocational field, we need not shrink back because we are Christians.

I follow Christ. I am a spiritual Jew, as the Scriptures and evidence of the Holy Ghost proclaim that I am. I shine in color and boldness. There is nothing dry, unsaturated, dull or timid about this walk.

Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

What about you? Are you a shrinking violet or are you shining in color and boldness?

Be bold. Live your life in color and shine on!

Summer Style Tips: Lighter, Brighter Colors & Fabrics

ModelMeGirl.com

Today is the official first day of summer. It’s time to spruce up your summer style with fabrics and colors that say cool and refreshing. While you’re staying cool, don’t let the heat tempt you to veer away from the modesty trail. You can still be stylish without compromising.

Length

What’s the best way to stay protected from the sun’s heat? Cover up! Have you ever seen a nomad trekking through the desert in super short shorts? Nah. Here, summer is the season when all micro mini apparel takes center stage. Go for a patio dress, or maxi dress or skirt. Remember, skirts and dresses that are long and flowing allow air to circulate.

If super long isn’t your thing, there’s lots of mid-length and short skirts and dresses that are pleasantly modest. Sheath or shift dress anyone?

Lighter, Brighter Colors

Lighter colors reflect the sun’s heat. That was easy. Neutral earth tone colors come to mind.

Various shades of coral, pink, purple, blue, red, yellow, green and orange are examples of bright colors that spell out summer. The exact shade of color pop that looks good on you will be according to your skin color. Find what works for you.

Lighter Fabrics

I love denim and express my love for it with the Denim Skirt Days Collection. Denim’s not always the best choice on super hot days, unless it’s a lighter, stretchy denim.

Look for cool fabrics that soak up moisture from your skin.
