Every morning I wake up. Wash my face, make my bed, and put on my clothes. The most important thing of all, well at least it is to me. Clothes are almost like a sign of who you are. If you don’t’ wear this or that you’re not part of the crowd.

I believe that “God cares about your style, even if you don’t wear what everyone else is wearing.” When I wake up sometimes I don’t think what I’m wearing will make me be “popular” or apart of the crowd. But then I think, God cares about your style, but he doesn’t care if it is what everyone else is wearing. Since God is a loving, caring God, he doesn’t care if we don’t exactly fit in with what everyone else is wearing.

God is the everlasting, Prince of Peace. He cares about everything. I believe God put us on this earth for a specific reason, to tell others about Jesus. Some people will say, “Oh you shouldn’t care about what you wear or this or that.” But it is alright to worry about those kinds of things. God still wants us to be in style.

Rich or poor, wealthy or not so wealthy, God doesn’t care about your outside identity, he only cares what is on the inside. What I mean by he doesn’t care about your outside identity, is that he doesn’t care if your outside is name brand clothes, or just regular clothes. So what if you have twenty pairs of jeans or you only have two pairs. What matters is what your style is. That is why I believe that God cares about your style, even if we don’t have all the glamorous clothes. God cares who you are.

Every day millions of people at school or anywhere get hurt because they’re not wearing the “in” clothes. Or name brand clothes, like clothes from Hollister, American Eagle, or Abercrombie. But as I’ve said all along it doesn’t matter what you wear. The only person you need to impress is God. He doesn’t care what you wear, do, or say. The only thing that does matter is that you’re satisfied with who you are, and your style.

I believe God cares about your style if you don’t wear what the crowd wears. Just be happy with your style
