Can I change....?

I love getting my hair done! From the warm greeting that my stylist gives me to the finished product of well sculpted and perfectly colored hair, I enjoy the entire process! This time in the salon is pure indulgence, one that feeds my pampering need.

During this visit, a woman with dark brown hair came into the salon. Her desire was to change her hair color to platinum blonde. (I was ease dropping or maybe she was talking loudly!) I was struck by her strong desire that both she and I have to be something different than what we naturally are.

I admit freely that I am not content with the hair color that grows out of my head. Growing up, my hair was light blonde and now, well let's just say it is slightly brown. 

I much prefer the bright hues of blonde. Is that wrong? Am I not being content with the way I was created? Am I the clay telling the potter to re-create me?

Why do we want things that we don't have?

People with curly hair want straight hair and vice versa.

  • When things start to get old we buy something new.
  • When something bigger and better is created, we often toss aside things for the newest and greatest.
  • When we see that someone has _____ we want it too!
Why is it so hard to be content? Learning to be content continues to be a process for me. I want to be able to live contently in God's promises, that He knows my needs and will supply all of them. It's the wants that I seem to confuse with the needs!

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 NLT

Lord I confess that I have confused needs and wants. Help me to be satisfied with everything that you have given me. Teach me to see the difference and to trust you to supply my every need.
