Times of Refreshing: Spring Cleanse

“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus…” Acts 3:19-20

Lord, give us eyes to see the feast before us—a feast we often miss by being too busy to hear your Word, too distracted and stressed to sit at your feet.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.” Psalm 51:10-12

We all need times of refreshing. For our bodies, our hearts, and our minds…

The world we live in today doesn’t leave us much time for renewal, cleansing, and sitting at the feet of Jesus. Our lives are chaotic to say the least. We have work obligations, our kids need to be 7 places at once, we’re coming and going and our calendars are full.

We must make the time to feast on Jesus.

What if we spent 5 days together fasting yet feasting?

What if we denied our physical bodies of our normal diets and instead feasted on what truly fills us up? Jesus. Only Jesus.

What if we spent 5 days together feasting on the Word made flesh that our own flesh might die?

Spring 5-Day Cleanse

Join Arabah Joy and I (along with Dr. Edie Wadsworth of Lifeingrace & The Oily Sisterhood)  as we spend 5 days eating only the nutrients we need to keep us strong & healthy while feasting on what gives us true joy and renewal: Jesus. 

This 5-Day Cleanse has been a game changer for me in my own health since completing it two times now.

My journey to wellness (both physically and emotionally) has been topsy turvy to say the least. After 3 babies in 3 years, my emotional wellness tanked. I spent years on anti-depressants, prescription sleep meds, 40+ pounds overweight and pre-diabetic. Over the last year, the grace of God has allowed me to come off all of my meds, lose 42 pounds and find energy, joy and abundant life once again. He is good. You can read more about my journey here. 

This cleanse helped me in so many ways. First of all, most of us are addicted to foods that make us sick. Food is medicine. If we can deny our flesh what it wants and only feed it what makes us strong, we are more equipped to use the temples we’ve been given to live out the callings God has on our lives. Abstaining from the processed foods and junk that many of us eat for 5 days will prayerfully be a jumpstart to the healthier eating habits we need.

I don’t know about you, but I need energy to live out this life God has given me. And my wellness journey has taught me that these right choices go a long way to helping me be all God made me to be.

Secondly, the cleanse helped me to push past a weight loss plateau and keep moving forward on my health journey.

Third, a cleanse has such spiritual value for us as well as physical. It is good for us to deny ourselves. It is a spiritual discipline that has value for our mind, body and soul.

Fasting Yet Feasting

Let us be found faithful to feast on Jesus. Sometimes this means we fast from the world for a season. As we set aside this week leading up to Easter, let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross.

One thought on “Times of Refreshing: Spring Cleanse”

  1. I am going to do this with you! I ordered the cleanse this morning. I was looking at old pictures yesterday and realized I have put on 30 pounds since Brent and I got married. I feel bloated, sluggish and need to start making better decisions about my health. I turn 40 in July and I would like to loose 20 pounds by then. I am going to use this week to jumpstart this decision. Thanks for sharing
