Show Notes

Have you ever gone through a cleansing? I have had to take medicine in my time that has done a pretty good job of removing things from my system! I've even heard of people who have gone through detox sessions or have had to get special injections from doctors to get chemicals out of their system. Yikes! My personal thoughts regarding cleansing make me think about going through a fast. When you go through one, you begin to pull away from what you have made familiar to your taste buds through routine or comfort, and you take away everything but the basics, you know like you just drink water and eat fruits and veggies. The first couple of days are rather crazy. I've been flat out sick the first couple of days just getting sugar and junk out of my system. Now I kind of give myself a lead time with caffeine because that one on top of sugar, when you pull them both out of your system at once...wow. But about three days later...and it always seems like it takes 3 days--funny, a resurrection analogy--you feel so good!! I always start to sleep better by day three. I need to do another one of those sessions again soon...but my point is, there is also something even bigger about a fast than just denying yourself food delights, its about drawing near to the Lord. When we do, we effectively are getting cleansed, did you know that? If you have trouble in ANY area, when you come close to the Lord, it gets exposed. Then we have a choice, do we repent and let Him burn it out of us, or do we retreat back into darkness further. I don't know about you, but I would rather go on to greater liberty in Christ Jesus, and confront the ugly, rather than cover it up and act like everything is okay. Jesus's motive is always to heal us and move us forward, not strip and beat us and shove us behind. He is always looking to restore and even resurrect that which you thought could never be. How wonderful He is to us!Let us ALL draw closer to Jesus every day with the help of our friend, the Holy Spirit, who helps to guide us into more of Him, Jesus our Way, our Truth and our Life. God Bless!
