Dear Christian Sister,
I want to encourage you today!
Your effort to dress modestly, and your refusal to conform to the low standards of society, doesn’t go unnoticed. God sees. You will be richly rewarded for your obedience, one day. Even now, I imagine God’s joy-filled face as He takes pleasure in seeing you submit yourself willingly to His Word. I can see Him sharing with the angels, “That’s my daughter; isn’t she beautiful? There’s a woman who fears Me, and allows Me to purify and transform her into a vessel fit for My service. She is downhearted today because she’s the only one who chooses to dress this way in her circle of acquaintances. Oh, how I long to encourage her! And I will, if she will let Me.”
Oh, woman of God, take heart! There is nothing that we lose in this life, that God will not give back to us again (yet perhaps in another form). Your friends may leave you, even other Christians may shake their heads at you and falsely label you “legalistic,” but God will repay every humble act of obedience to His will. When you feel discouraged, remember that though you may not know anyone in your social sphere who dresses modestly, there are actually thousands of other ladies, maybe millions, in the world right now who are doing the same!
Let us stand together in courageous defiance of the sexy, immodest attire of our day, and let us commit ourselves anew to the dignified coverings of modest maidens!

“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided [braided] hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh [is proper for] women professing godliness) with good works.”
1 Timothy 2:9-10
