Jeremiah 29:11

Hope you had a marvelous week! It’s not everyday you see a 5’2” girl walking the streets in EXTRA wide leg pants. The truth is, being petite has always made it hard for me to shop for bottoms. For some shorties, seeing these in a store would keep them walking because of instantly assuming they aren’t for them. But not me; it just means I can put on a pair of platformed heels and strut my stuff! 💁🏾 I purchased these jeans from Fashion Nova and was seriously so surprised that they fit me perfectly! Booo yaaaa!

I am a fan of slogan tees, so getting this particular sweatshirt was a win for me. The context of Jeremiah 29:11 is the Israelites were in exile, a punishment from God because of their disobedience. In short: God had a plan for the Israelites; a plan that will give them hope and a great future. But before all of that Jeremiah told them (paraphrasing): “look, while y’all in this mess, ask God for peace and pray for the city!”

The Israelites were basically like, “Noooooo! we wanna go home!” In reality, God’s plan was for them to stay right where they were and to help prosper  & pray for the nation that enslaved them! 😱 In other words: In the midst of your suffering, cling to Jeremiah 29:11, but cling to it for the right reason: not in the hopes that God will take away your suffering, but will give you faith in HIM in the midst of it!

The best growth comes through persevering through trials, not escaping them entirely.

      I love your style. I have been trying to find that black off the shoulder high/low dress that was sold out. I ordered it from Amazon and it’s coming from China. I don’t have a good feeling about the quality once it arrives. Do you restock sold out items?

    Love the look!!!!!!
    What size are your jeans? I’ve been reading the reviews on them and didn’t know if I need to get an XL since most said they didn’t have a lot of stretch.

      I got my regular size small. I suggest sizing up to maintain the OTS look. 🙂
