The recommended length of time is 10 days. I've done it before and lasted about 3 days. This time I ended tonight, on day six.
It is a test for sure. Especially this weekend because we had a weekend full of celebrations--of course all consist of delicious food!!
Besides the food issue though--I realized what really needs to be detoxed is ME. My mind and heart. I am still a work in progress. My failings come blaring through in such disappointing and obvious ways.
The real cleansing I need is internal. My heart and soul need redemption. I am so grateful for a Savior that sees me not for what I am--but who he has designed me to be. Only he can do the real internal cleansing. He sometimes reveals to me my weakness in those moments when I am trying MY hardest to be strong. He is strong enough for me...when my need is greatest.
|When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions. Psalm 65:3|
