You Did That On Purpose?

I wear my hair spiked up in the back in a style that sort of looks like bed-head.  In fact, a lady once told me, “honey, I wake up looking like that, and I work hard to fix it”.  I told her, “Well, don’t work so hard!”

This past weekend I was at a writer’s seminar, and another woman asked me, “How do you get your hair to do that?”  It got me to thinking.  Now here is a list of responses I can use:

How did you Get Your Hair Like That?

1. I slept-walked through a car wash and didn’t wake up until “buff”.
2. A hummingbird forgot to stop flapping her wings before nesting there.
3. I thought I was walking on the fashion runway, and a fan was blowing my hair back, but I was actually on an airport runway and the prop plane was taking off.
4. I thought I was using hair glue to spike my hair.  It was actually super glue.
5. I reached for the hair spray, but grabbed the spray starch by mistake.
6. My hairdresser told me to blow-dry my hair upside down.  Do you know how hard it is for a 45-year-old woman to hang from the monkey bars like that?
7. While watching cartoons, an ACME package arrived at my door.  It contained a lit stick of dynamite.  I lived to tell about it, but my hair will never be the same.
8. My hairdresser said she was going to whip up a new hairstyle for me.  I had no idea she would be using her Kitchen Aid!

So, after that chuckle, I can’t help but ask myself—do I live life on purpose like I do my hairstyle on purpose?

God has some great plans for me, and has gifted me with everything I need to find fulfillment in acting on that purpose.  And He is excited when You live life on purpose too.

PRAYER: Father, help me not go through my day willy nilly, but with a plan to achieve excellence, that I might honor You.  I don’t want my daily activities to be on accident, but I need Your sense of direction and Your strength of discipline to accomplish Your will—on purpose.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God,” Romans 12:1-2 KJV.
