When I first started out on my natural hair journey I was very determined. I had specific things I would do daily to help promote my hair growth. I was motivated to have healthy natural hair no matter what it took! Once I reach a desired length, I notice that my determination slowed down. I eventually created short cuts on my wash and condition days. Basically, I started getting lazy with my natural hair regimen and it seemed as if my hair was not growing as fast anymore.
It’s disappointing to say, but my natural hair journey quickly reflected my spiritual walk. I remember when I would get up early and eagerly to seek and study God’s word. I would seek Him all through out my day!!! I was excited that I was growing closer to God and getting to know my LORD more intimately. Then it happen……. I started getting lazy and taking short cuts in my spiritual walk. I stopped praying as much and I stopped confessing my sins. Actually, I was stuck. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that there is MORE ! There is so much to know about Him and the plans he has for me… he is calling me HIGHER! He instilled in me that short cuts just won’t work.
LORD help us to stay on fire for you! I encourage you to keep growing. Don’t allow the business of day to day task stop you from seeking Christ! GO and GROW!!
