Standing Up For My Girls! If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything…

Many years ago, I made an appointment to have my hair styled, not just an ordinary style rather something artsy and creative.  I had finally found someone who could create the perfect style of braids for me and at the right price.  I had settled in, made myself comfortable and began to enjoy good conversation… The stylist shared life stories and I shared life stories as well.  We talked a great deal about her transition to the United States.  At times she would emphasize the differences in socio-economics, customs and culture, which I found interesting.  At times she would take a “dig” at Cosmetologist, saying that they were not the best here in our country.  Casually, I shared that two of my sisters ethical licensed cosmetologists.  This lady continued to say unpleasant things about Cosmetologist such as, they over-charge, they give you poor service, etc.  Gently, I said to her again, “My sisters are licensed cosmetologist.”  By now she seemed to have been on a “roll”.  She said, “All they do is lie to you, take your money and make your hair fall out.”  Sooooo…. I had already been praying, “Lord I really want to get my hair style completed and not leave here with half a head of braids, so I need you to turn this situation around.”  I turned and said to the lady, “There are unethical people in every profession all over the world. We can’t throw a jacket over the entire profession due to a few unfortunate incidents.”  In a cool and calm voice and with love, I said, “My sisters are in this profession and they are women of a higher standard.”   Sooooo…. the stylist backed off, apologized and returned to pleasant conversation and I was able to have my service completed in peace and liberty:)

There’s a time to pray, There’s a time to take a stand…. There is a time to speak up, There is a time to pray again…

Phil. 4:6 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
