It’s been hard to find time to get my hair cut but I was past ready. I was starting to feel somewhat bedraggled. Plus I made the same mistake I’ve done before and tried a little home hair color. Same trial, same results. At least for me I wasn’t happy with the results. So I called my hairdresser friend and asked for help.
I admit that while she was trimming I questioned what was I getting into? Does she really know what she’s doing? Is she cutting it too short? Will it come out right? Have I lost my mind? Did I really want to do this? What was wrong with the way things were? I had to make myself relax and enjoy the experience.
And then the finished product was revealed and it was good! She did indeed know what she was doing. She could see the finish before I could because that was her job. It was just my job to trust her to do what she knew how to do.
Lord, You are so good to your people! We put our trust in You for salvation but there’s more! We live in the light of Your Word and our countenance is lightened as well. We get tired and burdened and bedraggled in our lives. And then we call You up and pray “Lord I need help!” And You begin to work Your magnificent work in our lives.
We begin to wonder, Lord, do You know what you are doing? We want to trust You but all we see is the cutting away of things we held dear. We wonder if we are really willing to let You do what only You can do. Can we trust You? Do you know what You are doing?
And then we step back and see – You really are Awesome! You are oh so good at what You do. Everything You do for us and to us and through us is done with Everlasting Love and Tender Care. The end is so much better because we know with You things always come out just right.
Oh beloved, put your life and your plans in the Lord’s capable hands. He knows exactly what to do and when to do it. And He will bring you out and reveal His splendor through you at just the right time. You are a beautiful masterpiece of His loving touch! Quit wondering if He knows what He’s doing. He is God! The King of the Universe! He loves you and He’s for you so whatever you need fixing or trimming or removing or adding He is Able!
It’s time to sit down with Him and let Him do His work. Abide in Him and let Him reveal His best for you and through you. It’s time to rejoice at the revealing of your outcome because it is all good as He makes life beautiful for you.
