For today’s lesson, I am learning that I must purge the things that I have been hiding behind. For me, that thing was my wig. The wig covered what I didn’t want anyone else to see, my biggest area of insecurity… alopecia. The wig made me feel beautiful. There was nothing wrong with enhancing my beauty, but it was wrong that I didn’t ’t feel beautiful without the enhancer. After publishing this video, I made it one full year without wearing a wig. That may not sound like a big deal, but you must understand that this came after ten years of constant wig wearing. When I first shaved my remaining hair and made my bald head debut, I had intentions of still occasionally wearing wigs. However, after my debut, I tried to put the wigs on at different times, but I was so uncomfortable and would take them off. A few months ago, I decided to get a head start on spring cleaning and was purging unwanted and unused items in my closet. In the process, the Lord laid on my heart to get rid of all my wigs. You would think that it would have been easy for me to do this, considering that I had not worn any of them for an entire year. But that was not the case. The tears that followed the purging of the wigs, caught me off guard. But I later realized that I cried because I was letting go of something that was familiar and had offered comfort. The wigs had become a part of my identity. The Lord is doing a great purge in my spirit and is bringing me to a place of understanding who I really am. He wants me to become comfortable in my own skin. Getting rid of the wigs are a part of that process and I must say that I am becoming more compliant and excited about the process and the results.
How about you, what is that thing that God is asking you to purge so that He can do what He wants to do in you. Is a mindset (fear, unforgiveness, etc) , a relationship, eating habits, a job? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you.
