"if He Allowed It, There is A Great Reason For It."

Often times I would compare myself and jokingly say that I was the female version of Samson, the biblical Hercules, a man of super-human strength. Which was all found in his hair. If you knew one ounce of Porscha Peeks, you knew that my pride and joy was my hair. Every. Strand. But a few things happen this past season that I finally was able to... accept.

1. I was no longer Porscha Peeks but Porscha Coney and 2. I was no longer the Porscha that many people knew.

In August of 2015 I heard God loud and clear say "Ok daughter, it's time for you to look like what I am calling you to be. It's time for you to cut your hair. When people now see you, they won't see Porscha Peeks. They'll see the Pastor I've called you to be. They'll see the leader that I've called you to be. But most importantly, they'll see Porscha Coney."

I finally begin to accept who God wanted me to be. As a result, many things were stripped away from me. Trusting God is not always easy. Sometimes it can be down right painful, but as believers we have to get to a point where we begin to trust God's plan regardless of our fickle feelings. God is sovereign. So if He allowed it, there is a great reason for it. Sometimes God's blessings are not in what He gives us, but in what He takes away.
