Do you remember the story from the Old Testament about Samson and Delilah? Remember he was ultra strong because of his long hair. Then he met up with the harlot, Delilah. She "pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death" to get get him to tell her the secret of his strength. When he divulged his secret, Dirty Delilah betrayed him to her people, the Philistines. He lost his strength, he was captured, and they put out his eyes. Chained to the pillars of a Philistines house, he asked for strength from God one more time. He pulled the house in on top of himself and 3000 Philistines.
I am feeling a little like Samson. I have betrayed my "signature look" to go back to my roots and in doing so, I feel like I have lost my strength.
