Being Natural: Why I no longer wear makeup or hair weaves

PhotoGrid_1527583683867

Now I want to address this topic because there are a lot of women coming forth saying that God told them to stop wearing makeup, and there are also a lot of women who are truly pursuing the Lord and just want to know if they could or shouldn’t be wearing it. Now unfortunately, this is a very controversial topic and everyone’s opinions seem to be very biased but we have to be careful not to try and justify OUR OWN desires because our desires apart from God are satanic. They’re carnal!

We as Christian women really need to mature in the Lord because painting our faces and wearing hair sacrificed to idols (research Tonsuring and Chudakarma) shouldn’t even be up for discussion. Wearing makeup is worldly and it doesn’t produce any truth or righteous fruit. So no, I no longer wear it. What’s the use?

It’s vanity, which has no place in the lives OR HEARTS of those claiming to be like Jesus.

” But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”

(1 Samuel 16:7)

What’s in our hearts plays a major part in influencing the way we carry ourselves. So if you want to talk about the issue of the heart the issue of the heart is pride, no matter how you try to spin it!

We want to adorn our flesh because we aren’t abiding in the Spirit, and some of us are just so insecure that we’re seeking validation from this world.

I don’t care what’s trending or changing with the “culture”, the holy Spirit has never and will never inspire us to modify or to pervert God’s creation—that’s satan. When we try to “enhance” ourselves, in our hearts we believe that God didn’t make us good or “fun” and appealing enough. But who told you that!? Again, that’s a LIE straight from the devil himself!

Now am I saying that those of us who don’t wear makeup are going to heaven?  No. Not necessarily because being natural alone does NOT make you holy. God desires that we repent of living sinful lifestyles so understand that throwing out your MAC and bundles just a start! It’s been about 2 years now and I’m STILL transitioning so I can assure you that if you won’t even give up a tube of lipstick you have not truly given your LIFE to Him.

With love,

Brandi

  1. I am so thankful for this article.. I am tired of playing church as well, but I attended a legalistic church, and therefore had enough, I was following the commandments of men more than God (having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof) what is sad is you could be attending a church for years or months and never truly feel like your growing closer to God, I want to grow closer to God but church is not going to do that for me either

    1. Hey Stashia,
      I’m sorry to hear that that place didn’t work out for you but that’s the thing! The true church that can truly edify us is the body of Christ abiding in the holy Spirit, not some organization. And don’t worry because God is faithful to connect us with brothers and sisters from all over the globe who truly know and love him. Even if that means it’s just one person or that you’ll never physically meet them. What I’ve come to understand is that this is a good thing. This is how we get grounded in the Lord, by being fully dependent upon him without man to lean on. I’ll be praying for you and your growth in the Lord❤
