I’m in the process of growing out my hair from a pixie to a short bob. I have a picture that I took in to my hair stylist and she did her best to shape it up while it’s growing out. It’s kind of pain as now I have to add using a straightener to my morning routine rather than just blow drying and walking out the door. But I have a new goal and a picture of what I want so I am proceeding with the plan.
I wonder if that is how God feels sometimes when He takes a look at us. He sees us. He sees what He wants us to look like. He gives us a ‘shaping’ every now and again and in the end if we stick with His plan we become the ‘new’ us.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
