Be All That God Has Called You To Be

I am seeing more and more young ladies acting not so lady like. Especially young Christian Ladies.
Ladies, you are called to stand apart from the world not fall right it. People should be able to tell who you by the way you look, behave, talk and the pictures you post. Being young and wanting to have "fun" is no excuse, you can have all the fun you want as long as it is a reflection of Christ. 

Romans tells us:  "Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don’t participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living, or in quarreling and jealousy." and "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."

It is VERY clear. it says DON'T.

You are a witness to non beleivers as to how believers behave. Let them see God through you. And if you are thinking " this is the year 2013. everyone is doing it"!, God's word never changes with the times. You can't make excuses, you need to make changes.
Although girls are not the only ones posting these things,  50% of what I see is posted on facebook, instagram, twitter etc in young people is young women. Some of you are posting drunkiness, anything but modesty, hatred, ill will, lust, sexual immorality and shame. I want to make myself clear, NOT ALL young ladies do this, but many do. Respect yourself enough to know that you are a child of God and He wants His love for you to reflect those around you. How can that happen if you simply blend in. He wants to give you all of His riches and rewards, how can that happen if you are not in the position to receive them?

God loves you, love yourself enough to know that and to show it to others.

Save your body for the one love God has waiting for you, Be the fruit:
Galatians 5:22-23 
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Be you without trying to impress or empress on others. Be all that God has called you to be.
