I've come to the Conclusion..

Well how is everyone doing? I am doing great!! Well I have come to a conclusion. I have started to wear pants again. I just didn't feel anymore of a Christian in a skirt then I did in pants. So as of right now I went back to wearing both until the lord convicts me otherwise. I just see nothing wrong with pants and I figure out it was my flesh wanting that not God wanting me to do it. I am just as much a Christian in my pants as I am my skirts. So I hope everyone understands about why I made this decision.Well have a good night everyone. Can't wait to watch the woman's ice skating finals in the Olympics!!

Dear Jennifer,
I don't feel like dresses and skirts make me more christian ether. I am glad you are going with what the Lord is laying on your heart. I do know that wearing modest apparel as very feminine and becoming for women. And pants can be revealing the beauty of our earthly bodies and this is only to be for the one that God gives us to. We want to uphold the beauty of the Lord, I am not offended at all in the decision that you have made for this time in your life. I think you can probably find a way that you can still wear pants and be modest. But just remember that what we wear is not our righteousness. The Lord is our righteousness.
He looks on the heart. Keep following Him and bringing glory to Him in everything that you do.
you friend,
~Grace

"Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul". Hebrews 10: 35-39

What is most important is modesty. Although, I do not share your view, I am pleased that you were willing to seek the Holy Spirit's direction. There were no pants in the Bible days and God did not give us black and white instructions. What He did do was give us clear principles of modesty. How the Spirit directs in the life of an individual is not my business. I'm glad that you seek to serve God and were willing to give up a part of your life if God was leading you to do so. Good for you for seeking direction. Seek God in all things and don't worry about what others says. You will find that if you don't, you will wear yourself out trying to please others and never pleasing anyone! Many of us "skirt-wearers" :oP could use such a submissive spirit.

Hey Jennifer
I was in your position at one time.
I started wearing skirts a number of years back because I new that God wanted me to. Well after a while I went back to wearing pants. I just thought I was supposed to go back to wearing pants because I thought that wearing the skirts was just because of what I was going through at that time but I dont think God ever told me to go back. Anyway a few years ago I came to the knowledge of the truth of God's Word that states that we are not to wear clothing that pertains to a man which is pants. Because back in the Bible days and even a hundred or so years ago all the women wore dresses and skirts all the times and not pants. It was when the men went to the world war that women wanted to start going on a job and so therefore they started wearing pants as the men did. Personally I have found a new freedom wearing dresses and skirts only and not pants. I feel that, that is what God wants and is what He says in the scriptures. Yes, we are to be modest that is the biggest thing but I have never found a pair of pants that was modest no matter how loose it is is still shows curves and shapes and everything else. A dress or skirt just goes down and doesnt reveal things unless of course if you wear a tight skirt then it does. I love you Jennifer as a friend in the Lord but I do wish you would pray about this more. I want the best for you and know by experience and I can't doubt the Word of God or my experiences that I have had in my relationship with God. I'm not trying to come against you or challenge you and I hope you dont feel that way I just want the best that God has for you. And I know that you do too.
Your friend
Donna
