Getting rid of idols...

Or: 'Thou shalt have no other gods before me.'

I have successfully broken my soda habit. I can take or leave a Dr. Pepper, and will choose lemonade or iced tea over a bubbly cola.

Now, my goal is to break my addiction to iced tea. It's been two days now. The only things I've had to drink are water and hot mint tea. Wednesday, I did break down and get raspberry iced tea from Race Trac on the way to church, but I had a withdrawal headache... Otherwise, I'd had nothing but water that day.

Part of my decision come from the fact that I'm tired of making tea for everyone else to drink. Otherwise, I'm trying to eliminate as much as I can that keeps me from a deeper walk with Jesus. One by one, I will face my giants and idols and, with God's grace and mercy, strength and direction, I will slay them all.

Do you have giants and idols you need to slay?
