As my fasting journey continues, I wanted to share some more with you. I am day 8. Sometimes it feels like day 80. I can honestly say I miss coffee and Coke. It was so hard on Sunday, since coffee and refreshments are served before service. I had to sit next to each of my brothers and sisters and smell the wonderful aroma of java. It was torture.
But…I can honestly say that it has been worth it. I felt closer to God than I have been in a long time. I am also devouring his Word like my appetite can’t be satisfied. The Lord has truly blessed me.
With the passing of each day I have hope that it will get better, the cravings that is. I know and believe with all my heart that the Lord has a lot more in store for me during this 21 day fast. It is my prayer that He will use me to touch other people’s life as mightily as He has mine.
I plan on doing some internet searches on fasts while I am fasting. I long to know more. I’ve only hit the tip of the iceberg so to speak.
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve fasted before or if you’d like to.
Until next time you are in my prayers…
