Day:30 Please respect yourself and go put some clothes on….
Today in Nina Roesner book she’s talking about dressing more conservatively and not letting it all hang out for everybody to see your goods.
Nina Roesner makes a great point: “We need to be respectful of other woman’s husbands in the way we dress.” “ Make it easy on your husband’s friends and co workers by dressing conservatively and saving the glamour for the hubby!”
WARNING REAL HONEST TALK COMING YOUR WAY!
Before I became a Christian two years ago I was that woman running around half-naked. I thought it was cute, sexy and it got the men’s attention just like I wanted it too.
But it’s funny how your perspectives change once you learn who God is and who you are, you start to see things way different about the way you view yourself.
I had no respect for myself at all and if there was anything I learned while I spent time in the world was if you wanted to get a man attention real quick come looking halfway naked and they will come running by the flock!
But are you attracting the right attention that you are really wanting from that man?
See ladies here is the thing if you want a man you can keep than I am sorry to say old fashion back in the day is the kind of dressing that you are looking for. Now I am not saying you have to look all frumpy, there are ways to look sexy and still look conservatively too.
See what you need to know and understand is that when a man see’s you dress sexy/conservatively it speaks to them in volumes, it shows you have respect for yourself, that you’re not a hoe, that you’re the kind of girl that he can take home to his family, that you want more from him than a one night stand and he can trust you.
Trust me just because we live in 2013 and people, magazines and media have one-hundred percent screw up the messages about what’s sexy and what’s not sexy, what’s cute or what’s not cute men haven’t change in this department in how they would like to a see woman dress and what it says to them.
Now don’t get me wrong men will always love when a woman who comes trotting out of their house half-naked, what man in his right mind wouldn’t! You are giving him a free show to see all your goods without him having to wrestle with you to get to see them in private.
It’s a two for one deal for him, because he don’t have to take the time to get to know you or take you out, because you have given him a free show!
The wondering, the excitement of imagining what you might look like and leaving him wanting more is all gone because you have just showed him everything you got!
When you walk around half-naked men see you as a sex object and not as a person! All respect for you is gone!
But hey if this is what you want some quick roll in the hay than by all means come out of your home half-naked and you will surely find plenty of men willing to sign up to take the ride in your hay. They have no respect for you or your body, because you do not so why should they is their attitude.
Then we wonder why we got little girls, teenage daughters and men hungry after them too, because this world has gone mad and made us woman out to be that we are only good for what’s in between our legs and not what’s in our head!
We have done nothing but sat right back and kept our mouth shut and said nothing to stop what’s going on. Because we have justified the clothes that scream sex as being so cute, so sexy, and the greatest of them all excuses everyone else is wearing it!
WHAT HAPPEN TO OUR MORALS, RESPECT FOR OURSELVES AND FOR THOSE AROUND US?
WHAT HAPPEN TO PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN FROM MEN WHO WANT TO HURT OUR DAUGHTERS? INSTEAD WE ARE NOW SERVING OUT LITTLE DAUGHTERS ON A SILVER PLATTER FOR ALL MEN TO GAWK AT TOO!
INSTEAD OF US DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT WE CHOOSE TO SIT AROUND AND WONDER WHY DON’T MEN WANT US FOR US?
WE WONDER WHY CHILD PORN, MOLESTATION, TRAFFICKING AND PREGNANCY ARE ON THE RISE?
WHY IS ADULT PORN SPREADING LIKE A WILDFIRE THAT DON’T EVEN STOP FOR OUR CHURCHES?
WHY ARE WOMEN TODAY SEEN AS ONLY AS SEX OBJECTS AND NOTHING MORE?
Why because we have lost respect for ourselves, we have lost our morals and we have basically gave up fighting for what is right!
Just think about if every woman in America would stop buying clothes that speaks volumes of sex not only for ourselves but for our children too, manufactures would have no choice but to redesign the clothes differently!
Because just like every other person in this world they want that dollar too and they do not care how they make it just as long as they are making it!
Now as far it goes for me you will not find me running around half-naked! I believe in not only respecting myself, my husband, but also other women husbands out there too!
God tells me to not conform to this world and one way I am doing this is by standing out from the rest of the crowd who feels half-naked is the way to go!
I ask if you do dress half-naked that you please pray and ask God to show you why do you feel the need too?
SO WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Question 1: How has our culture convinced woman that being sex objects is a good, beautiful thing?
Questions 2: What’s wrong with this?
Question 3: How does it negatively affect our daughters and young woman?
Question 4: How does it negatively affect us?
Question 5: What about your own clothing? Do you dress modestly?
Question 6: In general, most men struggle with visual images and sexual thoughts when exposed to cleavage, short skirts, and so forth. Men will also say that when watching a presentation given by a provocatively dressed woman, they aren’t listening to what she’s saying, but rather thinking about her body or what it would be like to have sex with her. How do you feel about that? Would you rather have men hearing what you say or thinking sexual thoughts about you?
Nina Roesner ask that we: “ Prayerfully spend fifteen minutes going through your closet. Consider what your clothing is communicating about you and how it represents your husband and your family? Are there things you need to get rid of? Are there items that should be reserved for time alone with your husband?” God Bless To All….
