where we write for 5 minutes on a prompt she throws out there for us... so here it is:
When I think of this word I think of how I am walking right now. I feel like my God is stripping away all the things I have clung to for my own self- preservation and protection. I have made this choice willingly, to allow Him to do this, but I will admit that every once in a while, the pain is intense enough to want to throw in the towel and quit.
But what I do know about Him is that in the stripping down, there is always a re-clothing. A gift of a new wardrobe on the other side - a wardrobe of solid identity in Him, confidence that comes from my core not my rational brain, and the ability to believe Him when He says I am “fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Ps 139).
So, I say again, “Yes, Lord”, I come to you bare, all things between You and me stripped away, releasing my will to Yours knowing that Your plan, Your process for me is far more than I could ever imagine (Eph. 3:20).
