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
