I love my Sunday blog post’s and I love sharing my journey as a Christian. But, it has not always been an easy task for me to do. While I always believed in the Lord and the gospel, I was not one to talk openly about my faith. I considered it private and I didn’t feel comfortable sharing.
When I started my blog I never would do a post on Sunday. I thought that I shouldn’t since it was the day of rest. I was going to be like Chick-Fil-A and be closed on Sundays. However, for a reason that I can’t explain, I felt the need to do an inspirational/religious post. You can not even begin to understand how out of my comfort zone this was. I am not a scholar, I am just trying to be closer to the Lord. I cannot quote you scriptures and I would never try to preach to anyone. Sharing my journey, my struggles, and my thoughts were never intended to be a part of this blog. In fact, I get more negative feedback about my Sunday posts than any post that I do. Sometimes those comments are sent to me by email so I never share those with you but there are times when a comment is left on the blog. I would be lying if I didn’t say that there have been times when I thought about not posting on Sundays, it would be so much easier on me. Having someone tell you that they don’t want their fashion blogger “preaching” to them can be hurtful. I will usually call my sister and cry to her and then shake it off and do it all over again the next week. Reminding myself that the devil will use every tactic possible to keep anyone from sharing the Lord’s work is what keeps me going. Today’s devotional was on Luke 9 and even though it was not about this verse, this is what spoke to me.
Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
I am not ashamed of the Lord! I can only pray that He is not ashamed of me and that when my time comes to be before Him that He will have mercy on me.
So, for those who love fashion and only want to see clothing, then check out my blog Monday through Saturday. And for those who are also struggling with your journey with the Lord and want some inspiration and companionship then continue to come back each Sunday. The devil is just going to have to get over it because I am not quitting. I AM NOT ASHAMED!
Have A Blessed Sunday!
