The 40-Day Sugar Fast: Where Physical Detox Meets Spiritual Transformation Book Description:
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.
From the Publisher
“My name is Wendy and I’m a sugar addict.”
There’s something about sugar that has a grip on us, and we know it. What we may not realize, however, is that our food problems cause other problems too. Not only do we struggle with our physical health and emotional stability as we ride the sugar rollercoaster each day, we struggle spiritually. We suffer Spiritually each time we reach for a sugar-high rather than the Most-High. Our food fixation stops us from fixing our eyes on Jesus. Hungering for sweet treats gets in the way of our hunger and thirst for Him. And so, while they came by the thousands to the first sugar fast, I believe that it was really Christ they were after. And they found Him, because that’s what happens. When God sets us free from strongholds in our lives… we experience His strong hold.
Today, men and women the world over have traded their freedom and their health for shackles and shame — sugary shackles, and we’re so ashamed. We run to it for our comfort and our reward. We turn to it in boredom, a mindless habit. When life is stressful, temptation is at its worst. We turn to it when we’re depressed: confectionary therapy. And when life is at its best, we celebrate with cake.
Sugar is everywhere, but so is God. God is everywhere, yet we’ve lost sight of Him because food has taken His place as the Master of our days.
