This is the drastic transformation stress can result in

We all know that intense stress can cause drastic changes to our physical appearances. Some of us gain weight. A LOT of weight. Some of use lose weight. And end up looking like a bamboo pole. Some of use gets lots of pimples. Some lose hair. Whatever the effects, very rarely does intense stress result in an improvement in our physical appearance. Unless you are Ms Sharon Tan of City Harvest Church.

Make no mistakes about it. Very few things are as stressful as going through a criminal trial that could see you locked up for many years. Unless you are already a hardened criminal, it is a totally nerve-wrecking ordeal. And I am sure Ms Sharon Tan is no hardened criminal.

So how did she go from this:

Perhaps some would attribute this wondrous metamorphosis to the grace of God. How else could it have happened? It’s like a stunningly gorgeous butterfly breaking from from its chrysalis, abandoning the shell of its previous less than attractive form. It is a miracle. One that surely is only possible by the grace of God.

But there are the heretical heathens who do not believe that to be the case. The heathens rather believe that it is a result of plastic surgery.

At least one “aesthetic center” claims that the transformation is due to “fillers injection under the eyes n cheek bones”. Oh ye of little faith. How can such a metamorphosis be a product of human effort? Even if some cosmetic surgery can achieve such results, how would she be able to afford the procedure AND pay the legal fees too? Also, given that she’s is likely to face a fairly long jail term, why bother paying so much to have this procedure?

So it must be because God has decided to shower His grace on His long-suffering servant that she had such a wondrous metamorphosis. But… in the off chance that her great transformation wasn’t due to some divine intervention, I would really like to know how she did it. I’m sure many people would too.

Any ideas?

    • First time I’ve heard this! But… I think it’s true in quite a large number of cases! Now some would say that Photoshop/any other image editing app also plays a very significant role!
