Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
When you are going through something hard, it’s not easy to see that this trials will result in a blessing. I find that as people we like to set goals and then work our way to achieving. We have our sights set on the end results but resent the hard work it takes to get to the end. When you feel like this is when we need to hold on to God’s promises. That He is always conspiring for our good and there is a blessing at the end of the journey.
Sometimes there are even blessings along the way. Regardless, the last almost 21 days have been hard work physically, emotionally and especially spiritually. I hope that you have been pruned a little in these last 21 days. Refined, renewed and are almost at the end of dependency and ready to receive the blessings.
The only thing that should control our thoughts and actions. Not substances. We are to have power over temptation and the best way to overcome that is through walking with God. You have persevered, you’ve done something that you never thought you could do on your own and you have probably seen the power of prayer. Hold on to these truth’s long after this detox.
How has your journey been these last few weeks? What have you gleaned?
