“You can dress attractively without being immodest. Within the Lord’s guidelines, there is room for you to be lively, vibrant, and beautiful both in your dress and in your actions.”

Your love for me is great, Your love for me is known
And through these formidable obstacles of this life

You hold out Your mighty hand
My heart clings to You
My arms reach out to Your glorious heaven above
My flesh screams, “Never let go”
You simply answer, “My daughter, I never left”
Your grace pierces my chest
And penetrates my soul
For it has found rest
I breathe You in
as I open my eyes
Your abundant goodness dawns another chance
And hope is encountered once again
