I was trying to hard here to really toe touch which means my hands flailed out. Then I put them in the pocket and lost a leg. Anyway, do you wish you had a catalog of your mother’s fashion growing up? Me too. And so I bring you these pants , this leopard flat, and a gentle sleeve flair. The higher the waisted, the closer to Jesus as first book of opinions says. Speaking of the Lord, I’m feeling the itch to write again. And I will say it comes with being obedient in some areas of my life I haven’t had much structure in. I know it often takes dying to your flesh, but Obedience is the way to come alive. Obedience is the way to joy, it is the way to flourish in your calling. I read a quote somewhere ; “the creator is committed to your joy more than you are.” Of course obedience is always about trust, more than it is anything else. We’re afraid he doesn’t have our best interest and that it will be boring and restrictive. “It is not to sorrow but to joy that the great King invites his subjects.” —Spurgeon says. And it seems I only half way believe that sometimes. For now, I see why he asks me to obey. He has good things to do in my life for His glory and for the sake of others. He loves bearing fruit in us. That’s good news. Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. *And some super high waist pants.
