After my summer internship with a haute couture designer, Pathé Ouedraogo, I decided to be a little more intentional in my combination of clothes. So that instead of the normal match up of that shirt and trouser, I’ll mix those until I realised an entirely new look.
No one except me knew this and when I next appeared in school, a few people thought I had gotten a boyfriend, others thought I was targeting one boy of some sort and a few rare ones just concluded I had become a bad girl (funny!).
When Lilian, my roommate, and I decided to wear a lipstick to class one day, we got comfort from this post on our noticeboard and showed it to any one who asked too many questions. It read:
Later, as I thought about all this, it dawned on me that , I had the best of clothing combinations on the days I asked the Holy Spirit what to wear.
Weird, I know. But then real and true.
This made me remember what I read some time about us being ambassadors of God; His very expression (2 Corinth 5:20).
Why wouldn’t He care about how I looked on a daily basis? He did and I realised that He wanted it the best way.
I dress up now because everywhere I go paves a way for a statement to be made about God.
Benefits? I’m very conscious of what I wear now knowing who I represent. I make sure that I’m always at my best because that’s also a way I can present myself a living sacrifice.
It’s been exciting so far! Wanna join?
