Dear ladies (and gentlemen), this is not your typical hair story. This is about how trimming your split ends is connected to your destiny, life and business elevation.
Here’s a little background story about trimming your split ends.
The reason why we trim split ends from our hair is for healthy hair and growth. If you like long hair, you may be very nervous as the hair is trimmed. You may not even trust your hair stylist to not chop off all your hair.
I know because back in the day in London, I would get nervous whenever my stylist in Dalston (East London) wanted to trim my hair. Somehow, I was convinced that the people in that hair salon just loved “chopping hair” and I would not be a victim.
Yet, I kept going there because they did excellent work. Whenever the scissors came out, I would say: “Just a little please. Do not chop off me hair.”
I would watch the stylist’s every move like a mother hen trying to protect her chicks.
I knew that I needed a trim but I wasn’t ready, yet everyone always said after the finished work: “Your hair is representing! Beautiful hair.”
Isn’t it like us humans to fear change, even if it is a little shift from the norm?
Just like the hair story, it is necessary to trim “split ends” from your life so that you can grow and fulfill your destiny. It can be a nervous process because you don’t know what will happen afterwards. However to grow and to be at your best and destined level, some things (including personal, business and ministry relationships) must go.
What has become a stumbling block in your life?
What do you need to trim? Is it a relationship? Is it a behavioral issue? What is preventing your growth? I am reminded of the Scripture in John 15:2 that says:
“He prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.”
Pruning is an essential part of your destiny elevation. It’s time to trim the split ends so you can shine the way you were meant to shine, produce more fruit and make the impact you were created to make.
