Modesty is POWER! || Advice for girls


I read this really cool Christian book about Modesty and let me tell you- I’ve learnt A LOT! At first, I was like, Pssh! I know about modesty, just wear proper clothes and VOILA! You’re modest! But what I didn’t know was that modesty wasn’t all about the clothes you wear, but also about the way you act. Especially around men…

Of course, most of us girls like attention. We want to be the one’s who “turn heads”. Me and my dad were walking around the mall one day and spotted two russian ladies wearing very tight and very short dresses that showed off their curves and flawless legs. I looked down at my flubbery-looking calves and then stared at the two women feeling slightly jealous, and I hate to admit this but- I want to be the one turning heads. I looked at my dad through the corner of my eyes, hoping he wasn’t staring at them too. Instead, he was watching mom with an amused twinkle in his eyes as she checked out the two women herself. I chuckled mentally, so mom’s feeling the same way I feel~ Jealousy. But then I look at my dad, the way he stares at mom with love filled in his eyes. Why do we need to grab everyone’s attention, when we only need to grab one. The man God chose for you to be with. And trust me when I say, our Father knows best!

Proverbs 5:18-20

May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

 A loving doe, a graceful deer—
may her breasts satisfy you always,
may you ever be intoxicated with her love.

So, if you want to learn more about modesty, love, lust, etc. I recommend you to read this wonderful book.

Chapter 4 (Preview)

Lazerus’ P.O.V.

“Rus! breakfast’s ready!” mom yelled from downstairs. I sighed, taking one last look at the young boy in the picture. He was smiling, his grey eyes twinkling with happiness. He was so happy…

You know the last time I saw him? Everything was in slow motion. That was the worst part. I had to watch him, his fear stricken face as the car fell crashing down to the ocean. His screams muffled by the water. I had to do something. I knew I had to. I remember struggling to unstrap myself from the seatbelt, the salt water burning my eyes, but I had to see, I had to see my brother… I remember somebody grabbing me, lifting me up from the water, I was screaming, screaming even though it meant losing my breath. But it was muffled by the water… I remember falling unconscious, and I remember, before everything went black, I remember thinking, I had to get my brother…

It’s your fault your brother died. a voice said inside my head.

I ignored it… but the guilt stayed. It’s like a man trying to find his way out, only to find himself in the same spot…

I read this book a few years ago (a few years just being last year). Which was when I found the true meaning of Love. This book is about leaving it all to God, just so you know, God is the VERY best author of all times! He is beyond romantic ❤ Besides, God IS Love.

This is the story of Eric and Leslie, before they got married. To tell you guys the truth, I am trying to find ways to say how inspiring and amazing this book really is…

All in all, I recommend all you single/ married human beings to read this book! Just lovely! I mean, even a 13 year old would read it!

Prologue.

I’m Sunny, Sunny Brighton. I was born on a rainy day, which is quite ironic since my name is ‘Sunny’ and also because mom and dad were planning on getting divorced. Were.

You see, when I was born, everyone had smiles on their faces like the sun has risen to brighten up their day. I was that sun, at least that was what dad said. Was. But that’s the past now. Why? Because they’re dead…

When my parents died in a car crash, I was- I was lost, broken, and angry. I was angry with God for taking them away from me. I know I had no right to be angry at God, I just am… But why? why does this have to happen to me?! I was good all my life, I don’t deserve this…I was 13 when they died. Young and all alone. I was too young to live by myself, so I was moved to my Aunt’s house with her husband, Peter. Everything was well… me and Aunt Bea would sing songs as we do our chores and pray to God everyday. Everything was well, until Uncle Peter died… He died because of Cancer. Aunt Bea didn’t take it very well, but after two months, she finally recovered, or at least, I thought she did. I caught her drinking in the basement one day. We talked about it for awhile, and she promised she’d stop. But she didnt…

I go to the beach everyday, its the place where I vent out my feelings. Have a one on one with God, you know, stuff like that. People who go to the beach look at me like I’m crazy, probably because they think I’m talking to myself, but mom said “Do not be ashamed, Sunny. God is with us, and if He is with us, then what could stand against?”

Mom used to say that, God would listen to you when you speak to Him and sometimes even grant you wishes… I asked for my parents to come back. They never did. I knew it was impossible to bring them back. But now I doubt there is a God. I still talk to Him though and hope is still alive, but its fire is dim…

——————————————

Heyooo people! To be honest, I dont know what to type in here exactly. The prologue is quite short, but its a start, I guess… I’m kind of new to this writing stuff, and I always get new ideas, so its hard to stick with one story. This is a Christian story, if you guys were wondering. But before you turn your backs on this, please give it at least one glance… it would not only help me, but might help you as well! Oh and do not be afraid to give some feedback, about the grammar, spelling, etc. it would really help.

Jeremiah 29:11-12

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. “

Finding Life and Second Chances.


I wrote a new wattpad story, which I plan to continue no matter what. I would really appreciate it if you guys could check it out. I hope I don’t disappoint, because this is a Christian story and I’m writing it all for the glory of God.

Mark 16:15-16 

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

BUT…

 

“Before you can share the word of God, you have to LIVE IT OUT and KNOW THE WORD.”

Real vs. Fake (A Short Story)


Lovely Rose.

Lovely Rose.

I stare at the dying rose, all of it’s petals has fallen, only one stays, but it’s strength fades as well…

“Isn’t it ironic that a man gives his loved one a rose, when the rose dies no matter how much water you give it…” My best friend Anna stated.

I stared at the rose John gave me and watched it’s last petal dramatically fall as Anna rambled continuously.

“I mean, why can’t they give fake rose, it lasts longer!” Anna exclaimed.

Though it is true, why NOT give a fake one instead?

“Because LOVE is a verb, it needs action, simply saying I LOVE YOU doesn’t matter if you don’t do something… even if the rose dies, it’s meaning stays forever…” I said, feeling proud of myself for saying it so smoothly.

“That is right” Anna said thoughtfully “But what does it have to do with a fake rose? I mean, even though the rose is fake, it’s meaning stays forever… and it’s petals as well.” She joked

I scowled at Anna “Fine, just ruin a well spoken speech… Well, it’s better if it’s real, fake one’s are just too… fake!”

She laughed and I can’t help but laugh with her, it’s just too contagious… it’s a good way to start the day…
