For the past six days I've been doing a detox fast. You drink a lemonade recipe and nothing else. It detoxes your physical body from toxins you have taken in via eating unhealthy foods.

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
