This Monday I will begin a period of cleansing that I have dubbed the Passover cleanse which as the name suggests is a period of cleansing in preparation for the Passover and Shavuot (Pentecost). If you haven’t heard about it I’m not surprised, it’s not something associated with any denomination I have come across (except I know that Catholics tend to give something up for Lent), this is something that God first led me to embark on last year and I feel so excited to be entering into this period again this year. I can’t begin to explain how starting and completing this fast/cleanse blessed me, but I saw many little miracles during that time in my body, soul and spirit which I have carried through until today. I firmly believe that this year’s cleanse will continue God’s refining and sanctification process and lead me that bit closer to my healing.
What makes the Passover Cleanse so special?
The Passover Cleanse (PC) focuses on getting rid of leaven in our life (body, soul and spirit) on the outside it looks very much like a yeast elimination diet but I found it to be so much more. God really used this time to address the leaven that was buried in me (soul and spirit) that was leavening the whole lump; it was an intense period of sanctification. So many buried truths concerning my perception of myself, relationships and spiritual issues were revealed and God really told me one thing during that time which really changed me “I don’t love myself”. So few words, but a lifetime’s worth of implication! And so God led me to understand that I am His Vessel hence the title of this blog. During that time He also helped me find a new hobby, candle-making which is also part of the healing work I believe He has given to me, so from a personal perspective I know how much good has come about from my obedience to the call to go on the PC.
