I’m getting my hair braided at an African braiding shop. If you’ve ever gotten your hair braided by “The Africans”, you know it’s VERY painful, it’s tedious, and you want to see how the end will look before they’re finished. I’ve gotten up, stretched, and have looked in the mirror at least 10 times since 9:00 a.m. $250 is a lot of money (to me), so I want to ensure that my hair is to my liking. As bad as I want to know how my hair will look before she finishes, I know it’s impossible. The only way I will see the end is when she get to the end. So, I just have to TRUST that she is skilled in her expertise, sit back, and let her work. Keep getting up to check my hair is only prolonging the process. (CATCH THAT.)
With that being said, I’m reminded of the process that God takes us through sometimes to get us to where we need to be. It can, too, be a painful, long, and dull process. In the midst of THE PROCESS, we want God to reveal the end, but it doesn’t work that way- the only way to see the end is to get to the end….and the only way to get there is to keep going and trust that God knows EXACTLY what He’s doing- trust that He is skilled in His expertise. Yeah, it’s painful now, you’re tired, and you’re frustrated, but “the end” will be worth it. What you had to go through won’t even compare to what’s in store for you.
If you are in the middle of a storm or if you’re in a “waiting period,” TRUST YOUR PROCESS! GOD KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE’S DOING.
“Everything will be okay in the end. If things are not okay, then it’s not the end.”
Happy Sunday!!!!! ❤️
