Do you ever think to be like physically someone else? You want their body shape or hair style or whatever it is?
A couple days ago, I went to a salon. My original hair is wave and I wanted to do a treatement to make it straight. One thought in my mind was if my hair is straight I will be as cool as Ms.X (an actor I like). I was so excited to do the treatment. I kept smiling while the hairdresser worked on my hair.
And then… tadaaa… the hair is totally super straight, and I am also totally surprised. The looking was totally bad. Everything is totally messed up. I am not suitable with this style, in fact. Before I decided to do this treatment, some people said the straight hair will fit me. Again, in fact, it’s not.
So, I came back with a sadness of my own stupidity. God gave me a beautiful wave hair, why should I change it? He is the creator overall. He knew and will always know the best for His creation.
I realized I was wrong, and nothing I can do but waiting patiently until the medicine is used up and the hair back to its original shape. FYI, it needs eight months to get it to the original shape.
However, I learnt something from this experience.
It makes me realize, whatever our physics look like, God has created it SPECIAL. The next step is our decision, whether to treat our body right or bad. Tall and short, black and white, straight hair and curly hair, all are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God.
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous – how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered!” (Ps. 139:13-17)
Can you see how deep His love is when He created us? So now, let us treat our body right. Take care of the body He gave. Additionally, do not forget to eat healthy food and do exercises also 🙂
