Toxic from negativity in my soul is like intoxication to the body.
The longer my soul indulges in the negativity it intoxicates my mind. Much like how alchol intoxicates and impairs, so can negativity the longer I don’t deal with it.
I must begin to chip away harder at the negativity I house within my soul. It can begin to be like a viper and constrict the flow the longer it goes from being loosed from having such a strong control.
Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? Those who linger long over wine, Those who go to taste mixed wine. Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it goes down smoothly; At the last it bites like a serpent And stings like a viper. Your eyes will see strange things And your mind will utter perverse things. Proverbs 23:29-33 NASB
The 40-day detox has been rough and will be rougher soon as I begin to take and loose the viper hold and bring sobriety to my mind. As thats what God wants for us to be spirit-lead and not soul lead.
A sober spirit leading our life:
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8 NASB
The more I allow the negativity housed within lead me and guide me thats not sober or spirit lead. To stop whats been going on in me, we find in the above verse “be on alert”. I have to become keen to know what I am thinking and what comes from that, ie., attitudes, words, actions, passiveness and lack of sobriety.
I have been in the negativity so long that it has kept its appeal to keep it around much like an addiction. The feelings associated with it, the attitudes that came from it, the false humility and pride.
Well perhaps its safe to say:
“I am addicted to negativity!”
I am tired of the by product that the negativity has caused from such mindset that I have had. This detox by the end of it in another 20 days I want to see progress and change the more, thats my goal and determination to obtain. Pastor Juanita Gibbs taking us on her detox plan for 20/21 days its been real but about to be the more real.
Faith from the word of God is the antidote to the poison of negativity!
