POV Wednesday - Hair Care

I shed.

I have long hair, and it seems like I’m always pulling a strand from my husband’s shoulder or twisting around like a dog chasing her tail looking for what’s tickling my arm. Every morning after drying my hair, I brush it out and inevitably a bunch of it ends up in the hairbrush. And yet, thankfully, I still manage to have a head full of hair.

Seems like a silly thing to notice, sillier still to write about it. But here’s my point.

Have you ever heard this verse? “And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” (Luke 12:7)

It’s a comforting verse on the surface, but the depth of it quickens my heart – as evidenced in what I said above, the number of my hairs changes every day and sometimes multiple times a day. That means He’s constantly re-counting the number of hairs on my head because it’s always changing. He’s with me all the time. I am not alone or forgotten. The God of the Universes, my Creator and Savior, is continually paying attention to me, even down to the number of hairs on my head.

So whether you have hairs to spare or few enough that even you can count them, be encouraged that God always knows how many there are – a clear indication that He values you, Dry Ground friends!
