“Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Pet. 5:8-9
I dedicate this post to the insecurities Satan uses against the Women of God daily to blow us down….
Yes I used to hate my hair ( I would brush it when I was younger until it was a matted straight frizz gel stick texture and put a baseball cap on… I was so cute back then y’all wouldn’t believe it lol) , and today it remains a grace filled daily routine as I scrunch, moisturize, detangle , diffuse, steam, and at times embrace it’s beautiful chaos.
Especially on hard days when my hair refuses to quiet down as much as I attempt to convince it.
It’s a strong comparison to a never ending emptiness that is only filled by Christ.
But maybe we all do to God what I do to my kinky hair at times…
-We wrestle with trials simply to step back, and overlook God’s promises.
-We water down the Bible to make it comfortable for our daily lives.
-On “bad hair days,” we shove God under our hat thinking “I can control myself” as we go to college, work, plug in our music playlist, and even walk in to that party… etc.
-We act on our own.
WE THEN BECOME OUR OWN GOD.
Adam and Eve hid from the reality of their fallen nature…..
But we can only run from truth so long before it hits us in our face.
The moment we remove our hat; we see the reflection of a fallen Saint.
We hurt with a broken spirit in a hurt and broken world.
THE CREATION LACKS A CONSTANT NEED.
But the one who is the CREATOR is also a HEALER.
So return to him and no longer live in fear of tomorrow. Live under the confidence of Christ’s promises. Live free from all you are burdened from and hurt from.
I am healed
I am restored
I am redeemed
I am free from my history, past, the opinions of man and my sin.
I AM BEAUTIFUL.
REMAIN IN HIM.♡
