Clothed in Christ & No Muffin Tops

woman smiling

I’ve started waking up extra early, take my time and do full make-up. Contouring, smoky eye, the works.

And though vanity is something I got to keep in check, I’ve noticed I feel better about myself when I take time for myself.

Also another big confidence booster was getting rid of all the clothes that didn’t fit my body and lifestyle.

Y’all know how liberating it is to go in your closet and know everything fits in the most flattering way? To be able to focus on color and pattern- not size.

It’s like having a little shop just for my frame. Everything is size Rae! Yay!

But it’s really not about clothes. Or wearing the latest and greatest. It’s about knowing my value and dressing myself like I’m worth the time and effort.

Cuz I totes am.

For all my shapely sisters out there, God didn’t make you from a cookie cutter. You are uniquely beautiful. 

To keep this post short like my attention span, I’ma slap a Bible verse on it and close.

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. (Galatians 3:26-27)

I like to think being clothed with Christ doesn’t include a muffin top lol (:

Be blessed,

*Rae

  1. Hi Rae

    You’re right – taking trouble with your appearance is not vanity; it just means you acknowledge your worth.

    The other thing about being clothed with Christ it makes me wonder how much more the crowds felt that way in His incarnate presence when He walked the earth? And He mixed with people from all walks of life; nobody needed to feel shame or unworthiness in His presence except the scribes and the Pharisees – see Mt 23:

    Every blessing to you,

  2. Hi Rae,

    Well said. I tell my wife all the time that real beauty radiates from a woman all the time. Keep it real,

    Hi, Rae! I’m new to your page, but look forward to scrolling backward to read more. I totally agree. The days that I actually take a few minutes and get my life together (lol), I feel so much better. I’m not trying to impress anyone but myself. I love it!
