DAY 2 — Tuesday, January 7th, 2020
Today’s scripture is one of my favorite verses to meditate on as as we fast from sugar — or anything else holding us back from the One calling us back to Himself.
Did this chapter resonate with you today? How about this passage?
It’s OK if you are feeling lousy today — both physically and emotionally. Let me encourage you to embrace the sadness. Physically, your body is reminding you that you’ve been running to the wrong stuff for far too long. Detoxing feels yucky! (Drinking lots of water will help.) But emotionally you should feel sad too. Allow those feelings to carry you down to your knees and back to Him!
We are literally turning away from sugar and returning to our sweet Savior. It’s good to feel back about having strayed… that’s why we often weep as we return to Him.
Anyone else feeling sad (or sick) today?
I’m quickly realizing how much thoughtless snacking I was doing..whenever I walked into the kitchen I’d grab a handful of chocolate covered coffee beans, or jelly belly’s or whatever leftover Halloween candy I happened to snatch when visiting my grands. Not gonna lie, I’m missing it.
Choosing to read scripture and sip on herbal tea on this rainy damp and chilly second day.
