"Cuts ARE a MUST"
"Iam the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. NIV
Cut-- to remove or eliminate
This past Saturday at work was challenging and busy BUT when the last client showed up it changed my perspective of what I have been encountering. Oh Yeah!!! This particular client I hadn't seen in months, and I literally had to perform surgery. Her hair was in disarray and needed a MAJOR Cut!!! Good God from Zion! She said "I am prepared for what you must do today". So I entail, put my surgical gloves on and proceeded. I accessed, based, relaxed, neutralized, moisturized, conditioned, and detangled. Now here comes the meat of the matter, her hair use to be middle ways of her back. When she arrived on Saturday, her hair had traveled up her back and was all different lengths. As I picked up my surgical shears, her face began to light up like a down-town Christmas Tree(bright). She knew change,a new beginning and a fresh start was about to take place. Being a Certified Cosmetologist for 20 plus years, one thing I KNOW about hair growth is, "Cuts are a MUST"!! Sweet Baby Jesus!!! It pricked my soul to have to cut her hair, for it was a MAJOR CUT!!! The ends were raggedy choppy and uneven. The word came to me, He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit.....John 15:2. In order for anyone's hair to GROW properly and healthy it must be trimmed/cut every 6 to 8 weeks. Not doing so, your hair will be stagnant, motionless, dormant, and idle. If in fact you are holding on to dead hair, people, situations, the past or ANY other thing that is hindering you, you will NEVER Grow. "Cuts are a MUST"! My Friends anything that has not produced life, light, positive action or change in this Season has to GO!! Cut it!! Because for growth purposes, the Father WILL. Insanity is doing or staying in something or with someone and things remain the same(folly, absurdity, craziness, unbalanced). Make the Cut!! After completing the CUT, her hair looked better felt better and moved better. Lord help me God! You SEE in order for Growth to take place, our Father has to CUT off ALL things that stunt our motion/movement. The Word goes on to say, "while every brach that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful" John 15:2. So by me cutting/pruning off what was bad the productivity of what was left can NOW produce LIFE. That is what the Father(Gardener) is doing, cutting and Pruning so that we will remain in "The Vine". "I am the Vine: you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing". John 15:5
So in essence, what was NOT producing got cut and what was bearing fruit(the hair that was left) will be pruned for GREATER Productivity. From Glory to Glory.
To Remain in the Vine, "Cuts are a MUST"! Let Him CUT you! QDJ
The cuts are painful but WILL Produce Purpose and necessary Growth! Be Encouraged!! Greater is HERE!
