5 Ways Fashion Can Improve Your Self Esteem And Relationship With God
Ever heard the saying, you are addressed the way you dress. What if there are certain things that fashion can do for you concerning your religion and faith?. What if it goes beyond being just garments to actually opening the lines of communication between you and God. We are going to explore these ways in which fashion will boost your self esteem and also improve your relationship with the Almighty.
Arms you with confidence
Once you know that you not only look good, but feel good as well, your confidence level peaks and you have enough self esteem to sustain you through anything. Hence when reaching out to God in this stable emotional state, you see clearer and you are able to connect with him on a more personal level. You are willing to open yourself fully to him because you have the confidence in him and in yourself as well. Hence wearing the right clothes can definitely bring you closer to God.
No room for self consciousness
Sometimes when we aren’t dressed appropriately we become very aware of our self. We are conscious of how we smile, act, sit, praise and even pray. Fashion is mostly about comfort, if you aren’t comfortable in it by all means do not wear it. That being said once you finally find a dress, suit or attire that you look great in but is also comfortable enough for you to wear, then you won’t be so self conscious about everything. You can completely be free in church and fall under the anointing as you please without fear of wardrobe malfunction.
Erases your doubts
Fashion has a way of removing every inkling of doubt you may have had about yourself. When you put those patterns and colors together, you stand out effortlessly and lose all your doubts in the process. It’s like a potion, the effect is instantaneous. Now when you meet with God in this emotional place, you have zero self reproach and this gives you the support to give up yourself wholly and just listen to him. There are no thoughts about you not being good enough coming through because, you have no doubts about yourself hence all you’re doing is talking to him purely in spirit and in truth.
Uplifts your spirit
Studies have shown that wearing beautiful clothes won’t only make you feel good about yourself, it consequently raises your hopes and spirit. You see yourself being able to do anything, to take on anything when you wear nice fashionable clothes, it gives you that extra push that ‘yes I can do it’ and ‘I’m worth it’. Yes, you are worth it. You’re worth it so much that he died for your sins. This is what fashion will do for you. It will help you remember everything you thought you had forgotten so that when you do go to Him in prayer, you’re already halfway to your miracle.
Fashion encourages human relationships
When you see a nice dressed person walk down the street you may get that conviction to go up to them and maybe admire what they are wearing or who they may be as a person. Likewise in the church, your fellow congregation will admire certain fashion pieces on you from time to time because they are not just beautiful but seeing them gives them a slight sense of inner peace. When you get these compliments it boosts your confidence and self esteem no doubt but it also endears you to the person who gave it to you. Having human relationships is good for the faith, after all ‘where two or more are gathered in my name, I am there’
The clothes we wear often tell a lot about us. They are even a representation of our faith hence we should always try to look as Godly as possible especially in church. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be fashionable, its actually quite the opposite. There are lots of church suits that will still drop jaws and turn heads, find them and wear them to church and you’ll feel your self esteem reaching its peak and your relationship with God flourishing.
