The idea that hair reflects God’s glory may sound so bougie or conceited even, but it’s not.
When you think about the goodness of the Lord and you know that you know in your knower that IT IS He that is responsible for every good thing, then you become keenly aware that the good thing also includes the hairs that are growing out of your scalp.
….which by the way He gave you too!
Having naturally fine hair, you may feel like you got the short end of the stick. Like, why couldn’t we get the thicker more heftier strands of hair that fill up an entire head?
Hair is Like…
While I can’t answer how or why one head of hair is fashioned differently from another (because I’m not the Creator), I can offer my thoughts and perspective:
Hair is like Art. Some paintings are painted in bold colors while others are painted in more subdued shades.Fine Natural Hair and Faith
Hair is like a rainbow or box of Crayons. There’s many different colors and they come in many different shades.
Hair is like flowers. Some flowers are big and bold and others are small and petite. All however, are beautiful
I think you see the picture more clearly. All of hair is different but there’s one common theme among each of these analogies. Hair reflects God’s glory. All hair is versatile and no strand of hair is the same.
How to Make Your Hair Thrive to Reflect God’s Glory
While you may not be thrilled with the hairs you’ve been given, one thing’s for certain. If you don’t learn how to embrace them and love them, they can never become all they were created to be.[tweetthis]Your hair won’t thrive if you hate it & subsequently just tuck it away so you can forget about it.[/tweetthis]
When you’ve done all that you can to love your hair, (including pray for it…for God to give you knowledge and wisdom) you’ll discover that there are definitely some things that your hair loves and is capable of doing.
Some things I’ve come to love about my fine natural hair include:
– How soft and easily managed it is. It’s so very easy to pull back when I just want to tuck it away for it’s own good (Protective styling).
– How easily it takes to many products. Styling your hair becomes a breeze once you discover what your fine strands like.
– Wash days are completed faster than most, saving me time that I can spend on doing equally important tasks
Now, I’ve had to dig in the crates for those! It’s not easy to on purpose find something to like about yourself when you see other people with features you wish you had. Yet, you must.
Don’t give up on your fine strands. Nourish them, love them and one day you’ll come to realize that hair reflects God’s glory.
God bless you <3
