Fashion with Purpose


Clothed in strength and dignity…

Have you ever really thought about what that means?  What picture comes to mind as you imagine this woman?  Is this the woman you are today?  Was it once you?  Has it ever been you?

Life happens.  Sometimes everything seems to be going along great…and then the bottom drops out!!  Our plans get trampled and we stand frozen in fear at what our future may or may not hold.

“She is clothed in strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.”

– Proverbs 31:25

I had one of those very experiences about 12 years ago.  My life as I knew it was over pure and simple.  What happened to me did not make me feel strong.  It certainly did not make me feel dignified and fear of the future was all I had.  Would I ever feel whole again?  It took many years for me to truly comprehend and accept that nothing that had happened to me was unknown to God.  He knew it far before I had any comprehension.  They were some LONG years but I also was reminded that He is a good God and a God with a sense of humor.   He had so much more in store for me than I could have ever imagined for myself.  So much good. In His time.

I can now say that the whole strength, dignity and no fear for the future thing is real.  I could not be more thankful.

Doubt will always find a way to creep in if we let it.  When it does, hit your knees and know you were created to be a woman of character.  A woman of strength, dignity, faith and joy…you know that laughter part.

Go do your thing ladies.  He’s got you!
