It's not quite one of "those" posts-
Well not really.

So the question is (both spiritually and literally so):
Are you clothed in strength?
-The ability to resist being moved or broken by a force
-The quality that allows someone to deal with problems in a determined and effective way
Are you clothed in dignity?
- the quality of being worthy of honor or respect
You CAN resist being moved or broken by the forces, trends, patterns, beliefs, and opinions of this world's culture- because of GRACE.
You can walk worthy of honor and respect that God died to return to you- because of GRACE.
11 For the grace of God that brings salvation hath appeared to all men,
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. Titus 2:11-14
We should not look for attention from the world or other people for that matter, but look for that blessed hope and the appearing of Christ. We should be PEARLS- Pursuing Eternity As Righteous Ladies. *wink wink*
Verse 14 makes it clear why God gave himself for us. Beautiful righteous ladies- let's make our Daddy, the King proud. Be unashamed to be royally peculiar. He called you out to be light. 1 Peter 2:9 Be clothed with dignity and strength. Be a women of GRACE in all you say, do, wear, go, and in all you are.
Do this and your future is secure in HIM. You don't have to worry about your future husband, ministry, friends, job, home- anything. Your King Father is working behind the scenes detailing your beautiful story, better than you could write it. Trust Him, and look to him- not the distractions of the godless world around you.
