I began to notice that the hard skin was beginning to crack and chip off piece by piece. "Oh well!" I thought to myself, "That was an interesting experience."
The thought just hit me that the skin on my finger is God's design. Nothing that we can do will change it. The skin was meant to be smoother, not hard and cracked. We can't change His design. Even when you see people like veterans who were burned or blasted in the war, or women who got burned by horrible and demonic boyfriend's, their skin, no matter the damage, still ends up smooth in a way. It's God's design.
When we go around trying to make our bodies the way that we want them to be, or add something new to the equation, it altars the original design. We are telling God that we don't appreciate the way that He made us. Losing weight or exercising is different, that's for health purposes. I mean, when we altar our faces or looks somehow or change our anatomy, that's a slap in God's face to me. You are giving The Creator an "F" on His report card and telling Him that He could have done better.
I suppose that I will just sit back a few more days or so and watch my new regenerated skin come in and thank God for it. Meanwhile I believe I'll make chicken fried rice in the a.m.
Thanks for reading.
