Well, I’ll tell you. Jesus doesn’t need fashion to proclaim His great story to the world. But why not use it?
Early Tuesday morning, my friend Lynette and I packed our bags for a day trip, and hit the road for a two-hour journey to talk about Jesus and how to “dress like a million bucks without spending it”. I’m one of the rare people who actually enjoys public speaking. I don’t just enjoy it, I LOVE it.
However, I wasn’t real sure how I could pull off a feat like this day trip. Especially considering that I’m not physically able to drive myself most places lately and I have serious short-term memory loss along with word retrieval difficulty. Good thing nothing’s too difficult for God.
These Austin, Texas ladies were delightful. Best of all, I got to see God work one of the greatest miracles of all….a changed life.
We discussed the fun stuff of fashion: accessories, self-confidence, and the basics that every woman should have in her wardrobe.
1. A great fitting pair of jeans. In your current size, not the size you wish you were.
2. A classic white shirt
4. Jacket that coordinates with trousers (aka a pant suit)
5. Little black dress
I transitioned into the story of my life. Pain, self-destructive choices, and then crisis that led to the best thing ever: Realizing I’m a messed up woman who needs a Savior, Jesus. I think it’s really cool that with a captive audience of women who are having fun thinking about wardrobe and fashion, we can look at the reality that we are people who don’t just need a makeover, we need a Savior that can give us a new life and new mind.
That’s what fashion has to do with Jesus.
And I’m glad.
