The Cleanse

I tried the Master Cleanse today realizing I am not ready for it. I think I need a couple of days to get my stuff together to actually do it. I need to get stuff like the lemons, sea salt, herbal laxative tea and some other stuff.

The girls in the office are doing it, but they are doing the perfect cleanse, I believe; at least that's what it sounds like. And it's about mid afternoon and I've downed 1 lemonade drink already. I've drank 1/2 of another. This time they made it with more cayenne. The first one was way better. I only ate a yogurt this morning and I cheated and had a tiny salad for lunch. So I need to go to the store to prepare myself for the next 10 days and then keep praying about it more and wait for the Lord to tell me to GO! I got allot of good advice from my lovely friends. Thanks Cindy, Mel and Deana for assisting me, giving me great advice and encouragement in this. Love ya!!!

I really want to change the way I eat and feed this temple of God's. I've been eating horribly lately and uncontrollable at some points. I love food what can I say; well I really love desserts for that matter. I really got convicted this last week and what confirmed it was that the girls in my office just asked if I wanted to participate and it was like....there it was. It was funny because a couple days before that I just bought the Prizm Weightloss program which I am going to do once I finish this cleanse, I should have my book by then. And the Lord opened that up here at work. He is soo good.

I am really excited to start and cannot wait to see what the Lord is going to do. My goal is to loose 15-20 lbs, sounds like alot but it's what I need to be in the middle of the Healthy range. This is per the BMI Calculator. Right now I am in the overweight range, which is not good health wise.

So please be praying for me these next couple of weeks. I will keep you posted on the Lord's progress.

God Bless,

"for I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me" Phil 4:13.


  1. You can do it Adrienne, IF the Lord is leading:) Keep praying and be sure Michael is ageeing that you should do this. You need all the support you can get. Don't even try it until yo uhave all you need to keep going. The last thing you want to do is go into a store when you are on the cleanse. Too many tempting foods, or Del Taco, wink wink.




Thank you soo much for leaving an encouraging comment, I look forward to reading them and thank you for stopping by.

God Bless you!
By His Grace,

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
