Letting go of the “old man”ย 

“Not going to sugar coat it, getting rid of all my rebellious clothes & stuff was kind of hard. All the memories I have had in them, the people that have crossed my path, the way I have transformed and tried out every style and “phase”. I forsurely don’t miss the old me, but it’s bittersweet how far I’ve come. All my rasta sweaters and dresses, my metal mulisha shirts, my band T’s, my provactive clothing as well as my “hippie chick” styled-stuff, heck.. even my thugged-out Marilyn Monroe blanket. I sure spent alot of money on that nonsense, even some was handed down or bought for me on a memory and I just feel bad because I can’t bring myself to donate such evil-ness to the people whom could use a blanket or a sweater, so to the trash it went. But I will buy new stuff to donate and I will buy more than what I’ve ridden of, and it will be of much more worth with the message of Jesus right along with it. Thank you Lord, for “cleaning out my closet”. ๐Ÿ™Œ โค๏ธ I know he will bless me back tenfold, & I will now be modest, and classy. I love it!”

Wow, if this wasn’t me!

I can recall from my above excerpt – going through my closet (literally and figuratively speaking) when I first got saved and throwing multiple bags away of immodest, promiscuis attire. I remember before this journey, that I was wanting to go as far as to submit photos to Suicide Girls and be all about my tats, piercings and body in a very sinful way, since after all – I was known for my “looks”. I couldn’t leave the house without my makeup, especially. Now I only wear it occasionally, if at all, and can care less. I aim to be set apart from the world. I am no longer going to attract ungodly attention! it’s not about me anymore, it’s about Jesus ๐Ÿ™Œ and I sure don’t want to be a stumbling block for my brethren.. If I wouldn’t approach the throne of God that way, I wouldn’t approach life that way. When I started to read the Word of God and be about my Father’s business it just came naturally & I didn’t have to force myself to change. I wanted to! And I’m the most beautiful I’ve felt in my entire life. โค๏ธ
