I’ve been up and down and really struggling with this “new and improved” product. I’m sure, if you follow me here or on IG or FB, you’ll have noticed a lack of pink drink posts.
So, I feel that I can finally let the pink drink disappointment out of the closet. I had quite an adverse reaction to the new stuff. Mood swings, weight gain, exhaustion. It was bad, folks. I tried to source it to anything other than the company that I had placed such faith in.
The eye-opener was when I just stopped using it. Sure enough, I felt better. Not “peak” better, but far better than I had been. I no longer feel that I can adequately represent the company when I cannot use their anchor product.
This has brought about some major soul-searching, and it hasn’t been pretty. But…the Lord is faithful, even when men and product companies are not. He has been with me every step, even when those steps have been misguided and blinded. He has been with me even when I misplaced His glory as my own. Or, something other than His.
This is the crux of life. Who am I bowing to? Who am I worshipping? Who gets the glory?
And here I am. Back at square 1. But, it’s a good place to be. Firmly in His will. Stepping out in faith in Him, not self. Oy, it can be scary. But He is with me.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.
13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
and sinners will return to you.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
O God of my salvation,
and my tongue will sing aloud of your righteousness.
15 O Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
16 For you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;
you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
Fill me now, Lord, with all I need to fully follow You.
