In three short weeks, I've been weaned from the need of acid reflux medication. I no longer have heartburn and no longer need to take pills to combat it. I have not taken an acid reflux pill in almost a week.
In three short weeks, I've gone from having excrutiating pains in my lower back when I stand for more than a few minutes at a time to having almost no pain at all.
In three short weeks, I've broken out in hives, acne, migraines and had severe intestinal distress. All were signs my body was ridding itself of the toxins within. Now, three weeks in, I feel lighter and better on the inside than I've ever felt before. My cheeks even have a rosier glow. My eyes are brighter than I ever remember them.
In three short weeks, my body now knows how to fall asleep within minutes of laying my head on the pillow and awake (without the alarm) every morning at 5:30am.
These body-bounce backs are perhaps the most beautiful and concrete and illustration I have of forgiveness as I proceed in this journey. It is something I hang onto as I continue to learn how to forgive myself.
Thank you, Lord, for creating a machine so amazing that it kept going, even in it's toxicity. Thank you for creating a machine so amazing that it knew exactly how to snap back into shape. Your handiwork is amazing.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
