Let the Fast Begin….again.

Our church has started a 21 day fast.  Each person should seek God and find out what they are to give up.  Tom & I are following the guidelines of a Daniel Fast.  We are eating vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains and some fruit juice.  No meat, flour, sugar, etc.  This is the third time we have fasted in this manner.


I found this post in my “drafts”.  We not only started the fast, we ended it this past Sunday!!  It wasn’t bad the first couple of weeks, but by the third week I was ready to be finished!!!!  I don’t know why it got so difficult the last week.

Tom and I wrote out some God inspired goals for this year.  Exciting things are going on in the Body of Christ!!  God is on the move and we are going with Him.

I believe our next fast will be on a whole different level physically and spiritually.  Now to walk out what God has given us to do, that is exciting!!!

Thanks for reading :)

Oh wow, that is a great idea to do this with others to have extra support and encouragement!

Do you have any books on fasting that you can recommend? I know that people fasted in the Bible, but it is not something that I really grew up around. I would like to learn more.

Great picture! Man, as much as I dislike fasting, I do like it. To my co-worker, I explained the purpose of fasting and what we were fasting for 21 days. He simply said, "I know that would not be possible for me." But I know that it would be possible for him, if he truly understood the power of the spirit, and living a life in the spirit, which by the way I am striving to do more and more every day. :)

Jake - I know as I grow in this, I will be blogging more and more about it!!

Fasting is so doable, because we ARE SPIRITS and do not have to be ruled by our flesh. God is so good.

You are living by the spirit more everyday, I know it!!!
