Detox

For the last couple of days I’ve been on a five day detox regimen. This involves eating lots of fruit and drinking LOTS of water. Only three days in and I’m fairly certain my intestines are clean as a whistle!

I’ve been thinking about how I could detox my spiritual life by taking a break from the TV and computer and just feed my soul with the Word of God, drinking LOTS of the water that quenches the soul’s thirst. Living Water found in Jesus Christ alone. Psalms 139:23, 24 comes to mind. “Search me oh God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!”

This reminds me of an Indian story I’ve heard told. There are two wolves, one good and one evil, inside each of us fighting with each other. Which one will win, you wonder? The one that gets the most food.

I’ve stuffed my flesh with too much food, causing me to be overweight, and my spirit with too much world, causing it to be underweight. I think it’s time to praise and worship my Lord and Savior, “Who made Heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them. Who keeps truth and is faithful forever” Psalm 146:6.

I can hear Jesus calling me with, “Come to Me, all you who labor and heavy laden, and I will cause you to rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matt. 11:28-30. Some people have actually said the gospel I believe and enjoy is too light and easy. All I can answer is,…”Yes! Isn’t it wonderful!” (Happy sigh.)

Be blessed by the Good News,

Roxanne
