Faceless Fashion

They say the eyes are the windows of the soul, but I say it is the heart of a person that counts the most!

” The eye is the lamp of the body. So if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if the eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness” (Matt 6:22-23).

I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds (Jerm 17:10).

Often times people will ask me ” Why don’t you show your face in your pictures”? My reply is always the same, ” Because I am trying to share a message about the good news of Jesus Christ and not my face”. Sure if I were doing hair and make-up post on social media, I would show my face, but that is not my aim. I try to inspire women to walk by faith and not by sight (2Cor 5:7), to wait and trust in the Lord (Psm 27:14), and to lean not on their own understanding but acknowledge Christ and He will direct your paths (Prov 3:5). We look too much for society to approve us, and tell us how we should look, what we should wear, and what color our hair should be. Social media can make you feel inadequate very quickly if you are not careful what you are looking at and reading. 

This is why I try to incorporate a message from heaven when I post. My life is more than long hair, nice clothes, and almond skin color. It goes beyond disappointments, failures, and frustrations! Not saying that I don’t have issues, because we all do, but despite what happens around me and you, God is bigger than that! We can go to Him in faith and know that He has the answers! It’s in Him I live, move, and have my being so why shouldn’t I talk about Him. We talk about everything else on social media, so I choose Christ. God made us all different; our shape, skin color, hair texture, likes and dislikes. Every Instagram and Facebook post should have its own style and mines just so happens to be faceless. 

In the book of Luke chapter 15, you can read about the parable of the Lost Sheep. You can read it in your spare time, but what stuck out the most to me was the fact that when the 1 lost sheep was found, the man went home and in my own words threw a celebration party with his friends and neighbors. I can imagine them dancing the night away and praising God for the hours he spent trying to find that which was lost.  If I never get a million followers and only 1 life was touched by my messages, than I will take the 1 life any day.
