Wherefore putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. James 1:21
Recently I decided to make some dietary changes in hopes of alleviating severe tinnitus I have had for years but which recently worsened. To do this I detoxed my body in a round about way. Purging things from the diet which may contribute to the roaring sound coming from the brain or ears or wherever it originates.
The subject of detoxification is interesting in the fact you eliminate bad things or poisons so to speak which could make you sick or contribute to a condition you are having. I say why not detox your every day life for Jesus. Purge those things in your life you know are weighing you down emotionally and spiritually and keeping you from being all you could be for Jesus. Sometimes the changes take place gradually but doing them is what is ultimately important.
To live a spirit filled and controlled life does not mean you need to become a monk but to intentionally do things that draw you closer to Him and make you have His thoughts. Starting your day reading the word. Staying away from people or places you know drag you away from Him. Focus on the spirit so you don't fulfill the desires of the flesh so to speak. Are you ready to detox in 2017 and beyond?
PRAYER: Oh Lord how I love you and long to do things that please you. I mess up but there you are full of grace and mercy with open arms. I choose to be intentional about walking in the Spirit. In Jesus' name. Amen.
