What I Wear-Confessions Of A Cut And Dry Gal

"By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:35

This verse is awesome, but actually makes me feel quite guilty sometimes. In the spirit of honesty and transparency here (and not just letting you see my "perfect" *cough cough* side) I'd like to say that I'm not who I want to be. In Christ it's a delicate balance of relying on Him for strength, yet still holding myself accountable. Just because there's forgiveness for sins, doesn't give me liberty to sin willfully! 

I have the type of personality that can be quite unloving at times. I have the tendency to brush aside feelings and think a little too "cut and dry." And loving people is a bit hard for me sometimes! I'm talking about those people who get on my last nerve and irritate (whether intentional or unintentional). It's so tempting to just float through life never showing love, compassion or feelings for anyone. But that's not good enough! How will people know I'm a Christian if I don't have love? 

Anyway, something I'm working on. 
Do you struggle with this? How do you show love to those around you who are not your favorite people?

I'm wearing-Striped Maurice's Sweater dress-$10//Black Slouchy Rue 21 beanie-$5//Brown Warm winter boots-$? Skechers on Amazon


  1. Love the sweater dress!

  2. Have you ever done Kelly Minter's Study "What Love Is" on 1,2,3 John? It is an intense, in depth study on Truth in Love. It gets down to the nitty gritty of what you're talking about here. I think you might like it.

  3. What a cute and cozy sweater dress! :) It sounds like you got a good deal on it.
    I totally hear you about loving people. God has been convicting me about love lately too - in fact, I'm reading a book all about it! For me it many times means making the choice to do things that are optional, but would really be helpful or encouraging to others, even if I dont' feel like it.

  4. When it comes to loving people, let's just say I work in customer service and there are some tough people that can be hard to love, haha.

    I wanted to let you know that you're one of my favorite blogs to read & I added you to a list on my own blog ( Thank you for the consistent posts and awesome outfit inspo!

  7. I understand you so well. I'm someone who though have changed through the years, still I'm quite 'cut and dry'. And sometimes is difficult to not be like that, as is part of your personality. But as I said earlier, life helps, the experience. Btw, I love your outfit.

  8. Your outfit is absolutely lovely, Natasha! Love the sweater dress! <3
