First, I want to thank you for stopping by and I pray that you may find whatever you came here to look for! Although this is mainly going to be about natural hair, I feel it is necessary to bring forth the foundation of this blog.
Psalms 139:13-14 says “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful.”
Throughout my teen years I have always read or seen this verse but never truly believed it in my heart. I never valued myself the way I ought to and have always seen myself as “less than”. I have always felt a void in my heart and somehow this void caused me to feel worthless and useless. At the time I was a Christian but never fully understood what being a follower of Christ meant; I claimed to love God but never felt fully satisfied and always came up empty. Sooner or later I found that this emptiness I felt was the lack of a relationship with God. This void was the very disconnection between me and God..it took some time but sooner or later, I began to truly believe that I am truly “fearfully and wonderfully made”. I found that my identity lies in the Lord and my value comes from Him…what an amazing and beautiful discovery!
So as your sister in Christ, I encourage you to see yourself the way God, you Creator, sees you! My sister, you are beautiful, you are valued and in spite of all your imperfections, you are loved by a perfect God. It is essential to believe this in order to appreciate your inward and outward beauty. I hope and pray that you know that your identity is found only in Christ! Also, I want to thank you for embarking on this journey with me!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13
