PEACE

“And the Peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” – Philippians 4:7

Amen.

Once again, or should I say as usual, I’m going to allow the spirit to use me, consume my mind and then help me reach out. Amen.

What is Peace?

· A state of tranquility, quiet and harmony.

· A state free of oppressive and unpleasant thoughts.

· Harmony in personal relations.

So I heard this song last Saturday, ‘Comforter’ by Cece Winans.  The chorus of the song  got me thinking especially through this phase I am going through at the moment.

‘You are Comforter, that's who You are to me
Comforter, a name that fits so perfectly
Peace that passes all understanding
Comforter is who You are to me, it's who You are to me’

I lost my auntie a week today and it’s most difficult for me since I saw her, spent time with her and a few hours later she passed away.  I went back to the hospital and there she was …. Dead! The pain was unbearable. A lot run through my head. It still does.

But even amidst this loss, I am comforted; there is this peace that has managed to come to me. There have been countless moments that I have laughed to tears. The pain that comes with separation is inevitable but God is true to his words.

Matthew 5:4

“Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.”

God is faithful. He has not only comforted my family and I, He has given us peace. Peace that I cannot seem to understand. I have peace because I know my aunt is at a better place, and she will no longer be in pain.  And that’s where Cece’s song comes in. I feel the same way about God. And I really can’t comprehend this soothing peace. But that’s one of the benefits of being a child of God. We get to have joy like a river and peace that surpasses all understanding.

Not to make this too long, I want to talk about being at peace with people. Being at peace with people can bring you this same soothing peace. It doesn’t only apply to people who are mourning.  The bible says in Romans 12:18
“If it be ‘possible’, as much as in you lieth, be at peace with all men”

What this means is that we should try as much as possible to be at peace with everyone.  If this is within us, we must do it. I want to believe God knew that we would have fall outs in our relationships with others but he still encouraged us to try and sort them out. “Be at peace”, in God’s words. This is because God knows what this ‘Peace’ can do for us in place of bitterness. I know this is not easy. We might have people who will make ‘patching up’ difficult for us. Let us try to make it work, do your part and know that something greater awaits you.

This area is a challenge in my life at the moment. Let us all pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help us all who need to fight against this battle. So we may find peace in all areas of our lives. AMEN!

5 TIPS TO HELP REDUCE SPLIT ENDS AND BREAKAGE

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.

YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  


YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way)..
