I need to strip myself from the negative thoughts that keep me up at night.
I need to strip myself from the doubts that cause me to question the God I serve.
I need to strip myself of the false belief that if I can't control it, it won't turn out right.
I need to strip myself of the need to know how this current chapter of my life's story is going to end.
And that's just for starters!
There are some people that I need to strip from my life, as well a some attitudes and appetites that I'd be better off without. And, if I'm going to really practical about this, I need to strip my drawers and my closets of the stuff that I don't use or don't wear.
Anything that hinders my JOY needs to go!
Now, every good stripper needs a p-o-l-e, so here's mine:
I must put into PRACTICE the faith I sing about.
I must embrace new OPPORTUNITIES when they present themselves.
I must LEARN the lessons embedded in my current challenges.
I must ENDURE the difficulties, knowing that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
I think I'm ready, are you? One... two... three.... STRIP!
