"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled."
Each January "The Fiddler" and I do a 21 day fast. Our purpose is to start the New Year with a fresh focus.
Being in full-time church ministry is a lifestyle, not just a job. It requires much selfless sacrifice, and that don't come easy. Smile.
It's a mystery to me, but fasting and prayer causes me to cleanse.
Mind. Spirit. Body.
To begin fresh. Focused. Empowered.
Fasting and Prayer.
It is easy to lose focus of our goals, dreams, and purpose.
Without focus we just wander.
If our focus is blurred with busyness and chaos, we live in a haze of lack.
There will be a lack of joy and fulfillment in life.
Fasting and Prayer changes that.
Will you join us?
Here on the blog, we want to share our journey with you.
We will tell you how we've chosen to fast, and even share some recipes.
The purpose is to encourage others that fasting is a spiritual discipline, designed by God, and anyone is capable of doing it.
It is not complex, as some might believe.
In addition to encouraging you, we want to see you blessed!
Will you tell us your stories?
Here are some points I have found to be true:
- Fasting trains the body to be subject to the spirit.
-Fasting deepens intimacy in your relationship with God.
- Fasting increases your ability to hear God's voice.
That's all I want to leave you with for now. This week I will share more details, but for now I just want to get you thinking about starting your new year with a fast (even if just for a day).
We plan to fast the last 21 days of January, so there is lots of time to prepare.
Your thoughts and comments are always welcome here. Have you fasted before? Will you join us?
Please leave a comment anytime.....
Loving and Living Life......... Amanda
