MY 60 DAY JUICE FAST ADVENTURE: 40 DAY CHECK-IN


So here I am, 40 days into what different people have a called crazy, amazing, inspiring, ridiculous and impossible journey. I can honestly say that I have agreed with all these descriptions at different points in these past 40 days. I have had amazing days and also had not so amazing ones, but I do not regret a single one of them.

Yesterday I wrote a fairly comprehensive post on my experience during these past 20 days (since I totally missed the third 10 day checkpoint, sorry) - so I don't want to repeat myself (you can read it here)

Today I want to reflect on just how good God is, He has faithfully carried me through these past 40 days and has held me up through some pretty rough lows. He has also helped  me to see that this whole juice fast journey is bigger than me - it is not just about a sick and desperate girl trying whatever she can to make herself feel better. This adventure is helping me connect with many people who just like me, are sick and desperate needing to find an alternative route to improve their quality of life. I'm also realizing how much I enjoy sharing the information that I have learned and feel that I could do this for the rest of my life. Isn't that so like Him - to take our ordinary, mundane lives and make them into something much more meaningful? I'm reminded of this verse:

 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.  - Romans 12:1 (MSG)

I'm not sure of what He has in store for me, but today I am content with walking this journey of discovery, healing and health, holding my Abba's hand... one day at a time.

I am excited about the next few weeks, as much as sometimes I want to eat food - I am secretly cherishing these last 20 days of adventure.

That is all for now!
