In The Beauticians Chair – Sarah DeLane
I had gone to get my haircut and was sitting in the chair with my hair-dripping wet. The hairdresser began to tell me about some crushing situations that had come up in her life. I said that I would pray for her. She quickly said, “you will?”. She whirled me around in my chair, turned to the other hair technicians and told them that if they wanted prayer then they needed to come to her station right now. Pretty soon we had 15 hairdressers and clients in a circle, hands joined. Knowing that there where unbelievers in our circle, I began to pray a simple prayer. The presence of God entered into the room, almost all of them began to cry as we felt the warmth of God’s love envelope us. As a tear ran down my cheek and water from my wet head ran down my back I was overwhelmed at our Savior, again. He had met us when we called, he had given His grace when we prayed and God ministered his love to those ladies in ways that I couldn’t.
John says in John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” The more we yield ourselves to the Spirit of God, who dwells in us, the more we will see Him work through us. The more we feed on His Word and allow it to take root in our hearts, the more we become renewed in our thinking which will then affect our actions and He will use us in ways we never imagined. (II Peter 1:2-8; Ephesians 3:20).
