Quick question: What do you run to when you hit the afternoon slump? When you’re stressed? Bored? Celebrating? Or anxious? I think we all have something we are inclined to reach for when the going get’s tough…
Well, no matter your answer, I’m so excited to share today’s podcast episode with you!
In today’s episode, Wendy Speake and I talk about the heart of her brand new book, The 40-Day Sugar Fast, which is about fasting from sugar, yes — but it is also so much more…And whether or not you think you have “sugar issues” I am confident this episode will speak to you!
Where Physical Detox Meets Spiritual Transformation
From Wendy: What would you be willing to give up to experience the presence of God in your life again? Many of us sign up for a physical detox program, thinking that if our bodies are healthier, then we’re healthier. But a healthy body doesn’t do us a lot of good if we are spiritually malnourished.
Welcome to the 40-Day Sugar Fast, a fast that begins with us giving Jesus our sugar and ends with Jesus giving us more of himself–the only thing that can ever truly satisfy our soul’s deep hunger. On this 40-day journey you’ll learn how to stop fixating on food and other things you use to fill the voids in life and instead fix your eyes on Christ.
Anyone who runs to sugar for comfort or a reward, who eats mindlessly or out of boredom, who feels physically and spiritually lethargic, or who struggles with self-control will discover here not only freedom from their cravings but an entirely new appetite for the good things God has for us.
Whether you run to sugar, or Netflix, wine, or Facebook, I think this episode, and Wendy’s book will bless you.
