It’s been two weeks since I finished a 26-day detox. Like most things in my life, my original plan differed from the Lord’s.

Even so, at the end of the journey victor paradigms had been tweaked and strengthened.

VICTOR PARADIGMS

Don’t be rigid.

  • The Lord’s plan is tailor made for you.
  • Obey the leading of the Holy Spirit. Listen to His wisdom.
  • Make changes even when it conflicts with expert advice.

Transformation requires sacrifice.

  • Tough choices must be made.
  • Comfort and convenience sacrificed for long-term benefits.
  • Some days you will just need to suck it up and do it.
  • No pity parties.

Be a life long learner.

  • No one person or discipline has all the answers.
  • Incorporate into your life expert advice that will make you victorious. Not set you up for defeat.

Celebrate small successes.

  • Transformation, not perfection is the goal.
  • You must learn to crawl before you can run.

The Lord’s wisdom and my obedience produced life-changing results— physically, psychologically and spiritually.

PHYSICAL

Dark circles and puffiness under the eyes disappeared.

Glowing skin.

Inflammation and joint stiffness gone.

One dress size smaller.

Increased stamina. Consistent energy level, no ups and downs throughout the day.

More mentally alert.

Improved short-term memory.

Deeper sleep.

PSYCHOLOGICAL

Kicked soda, dessert and junk food addictions.

No longer eating food for emotional comfort.

Food is to be savored and enjoyed.

Preparing food is a creative experience.

SPIRITUAL

Deeper, more intimate relationship with the Lord.

The Lord’s voice is clearer.

The detox is now a part of my remembrance album. A reminder of the Lord’s love and trustworthiness. Confident He will fulfill this promise.

For I know the plans I have for you. Plans for peace, not evil. To give you a future and hope. Never forget that. At that time you will call out for Me, and I will hear. You will pray, and I will listen. You will look for Me intently, and you will find Me. Yes, I will be found by you. Jeremiah 29:11-14
