Her face was still a bit tender to the touch. She smiled as she thought of how much
easier the procedure had been than she thought it would be, and the results overrode
the frustration of the constant upkeep to defy gravity in this aging process.
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench Classes
United. Today’s blog is thoughtfully transparent as revelation meets reality and
encourages us on in the journey of aging…gracefully.
She really was amazed at how much easier the PRP facial had been. Her only
knowledge of it had been thru one of her estheticians who had posted pictures which
explained why it was also called a vampire facial. Those pictures from two years ago
had been etched in her mind and it just didn’t interest her…until recently. The fine lines
and full-blown wrinkles overrode her aversion and when one of her best forever friends
extended the invitation, she accepted.
She was immediately comforted by Traci, the esthetician, and a nurse. She explained
every single step she took to complete the process. During one of the steps, Traci
discovered some white spots under her left eye. She worked diligently in removing what
she identified as cholesterol deposits, tiny little white rocks with roots! Then the
microdermabrasion process happened where lots and lots of dead skin was removed
from her face and chest area before injecting her own stem cells back into her skin.
As she rewound the whole process, several thoughts like sparks began to fire in her
heart, igniting her mind. Spiritual beauty is far more important than physical beauty, and
yet, there are some similarities: just as the nurse/esthetician worked diligently to remove
all the impurities from her face and chest, we are to work diligently with Christ in the
process of removing any impurities from our lives. And just as she had allowed Traci to
cut away those white cholesterol deposits, she had to give Him permission to cut away
old habits, attitudes, actions, and hurts, i.e., the dead stuff, so new growth can be
Soul care, though more important, is like skin care and Jesus is our Soul-tician!
Friend, do you realize that upon permission, our Heavenly Father will work gently,
relentlessly, and gracefully in our souls, bringing to light, like a mirror, gently and quietly,
those impurities in us that need to be cleansed, or removed, kind of like a soul facial.
And like certain types of beauty procedures, the process can be a bit painful, but the
result is becoming more like our Maker and liking who He has made us to be.
Oh, to seek soul care as much as skin care.
