I am fasting and praying.
I started my fast at 1130p.m. on Tuesday night and I will fast until 7p.m. Friday night.
So far, I lost 5 pounds.
I'm doing it, not only to really give my body a break from food but to stay in prayer for my church and for me. Recently, I joined an awesome church (http://www.dofclc.org/). This weekend is their 6th anniversary. Congratulations to them! I am so happy that I found a wonderful church family.
So I am lifting my church and church family up in prayer. I pray that our church family continues to grow!
I am also fasting because I've felt a calling on my life for many years to lead a ministry. It started quite a few years ago. I just want God to confirm the calling on my life.
So this is my first fast. This past couple months in my new church have been healing me of many resentments and bitterness that I've held in my heart for many years. This fast is helping me realize that I don't need food when I am emotional. Its ok to cry. Its ok to question people. Its ok.
I'm very excited because I finally received the Ani Phyo Raw Food Kitchen book and it has some really amazing recipes..
Have a great week.
