Focusing on what is right.....





When I had my daughter in 2011, my awesome Auntie Cynthia quoted a scripture that has stuck with me since. In the middle of grief and total sadness from the death of my baby girl she reminded of something so powerful. 



The scripture she gave me was Philippians 4:8-9, Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.



What a set of instructions right?! This blessed me!!! How many of us focus on the wrong in ourselves or in our lives?? I have told you all how I feel about shorts here so this topic is actually perfect for these pictures. My hate for shorts was because I focused all of my energy on what was wrong with me and my body. I never wore shorts because they show all of the things I am insecure about but GOD!!! 


This scripture reminds me to shift my focus. No matter what the enemy wants to draw our eyes to I am determined to find the noble, pure, lovely, and right in every situation in my life including my imperfect body. 


The Amplified version of this same scripture is even more amazing and provides more insight on where we should draw our attention to. 



Philippians 4:8 Amplified Bible (AMP)

8 Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart].



Lastly, this super cute short set is another hit from the CurvyGirlStyle01 Boutique! 


I decided to shift my focus and get my life with two different tops to have some fun. The lace bodysuit is from Target and the black shape wear bodysuit is from Macy's and the brand is Miraclesuit! 



No matter what is not perfect, keep your eyes and heart on WHO IS! Jesus Christ! People sometimes laugh at me because I apply the Word Of God to fashion and style but I think the WORD applies to every single part of our lives. Even the parts that seem to not matter, matters to God and for that I am grateful.  Peace & Love

  3. Yes you are right, the Word of God applies to every part of our life. Those verses in Philippians really are such good advice from the God of Peace who wants us to have peace also. God wants to help us focus our minds on the positive. On of the things that is "true" that I have found to be of great comfort to focus my mind on is knowing the true condition of the dead. Look at Ecclesiastes 9:5,6,10 and you will notice God reveals that the dead know nothing, have no thoughts or emotions, which is why Jesus referred to them as sleeping. What is truly comforting is to know that God will bring them back to life as shown by Acts 24:15. We will be reunited with our loved ones again. That is why Jesus performed numerous resurrections while here on earth, to demonstrate what God will enable him to do on the earth in the near future on a larger scale.
