Throwing shade as in = Making Negative comments about your natural hair
My crown is so rebellious
My curls never cooperate
I have bad hair
My hair is thinning
My hair is so stringy
I hate my hair
Well what if you didn’t have A-N-Y H-A-I-R at all????
It doesn’t really matter if you choose to wear your hair natural hair in its natural state or flat ironed every day (well yeah that does matter but that’s a topic for another discussion). If you are throwing negative comments toward your natural hair you aren’t helping yourself one bit.
No no no. Stop those negative confessions. You WILL have what you say. And, that’s not just my opinion either.
The Bible tells us clearnly in no uncertain terms: “Life and death is in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21)
Start speaking what you want your hair to be. “Call those things that be not as though they were.” That’s what scripture says in Romans 4:16. No, it’s not talking about your natural hair but it’s talking about “things.” All things.
Do you think that only applies to some parts of life? No! that’s every part of your life. God is concerned about every part of you from the tips of your hair down to your tippy tippy toes!
If you aren’t seeing the hair you want or just any improvement in your hair at all, stop and consider what you are saying about your hair. Just like what you see in your life right now is a result of what’s been spoken into it, the same goes for what you speak over your head of hair. So if you don’t like what you see, Hair or otherwise, change your speech.
It doesn’t matter
I was reminded of this very fact when I shared in one of my YouTube videos how I have bad skin. A sister in the Lord reminded me too stop saying that. Thank God for her. I know better but definitely needed the reminder. We all need reminders sometimes because we often take our eyes off the “prize” and look at our circumstances, thereby reinforcing them with our words.
Now I’m passing the torch…
Let’s start speaking life to our hair
