Pants on the ground. Pants on the ground..looking like a fool with your pants on the ground! I can not tell you how many times I have heard this lately in regards to American Idol. Yes, you have to admit that it is pretty funny when you watch as the man sings his heart out with this hilarious and catchy phrase about a fashion disaster in our culture today. I don't know about you but i have certainly seen more boxers and underwear than I would like to see in my entire lifetime from unknowing strangers. There are just somethings you do not want to see even if your toilet is overflowing....and you need a plumber, I agree, you do not need a show too. I really do not get why it is so hard to wear a belt. A belt will hold it all together...and save us all some eye pain. Right?
Well as I thought about it for moment.... people in general do this every day in life as they face enormous amounts of stress, pain, pressure, family dysfunction, etc...and what do they have that holds them all together? What is your belt in life? Most people walk around with their entire life all out there exposed in front of them and all the world to see and live completely out of control.
What is it that holds you together; or do you think that holds you together? Is it work, people, satisfying other's, finances, addictions, friends, hobbies? When your struggling the most it is hard to remain focused. Human beings turn to all sorts of things, actions, and people to fill parts of them that are empty and out of control. The only lasting one that will help you regain perspective, fill your empty spaces, and give you the peace, love, and security you long for is God.
So pull your pants up and on... and get to "steppin", life is meant to be lived, and it is meant to be lived well!
