DAY # 14 – 90 DAY FAST

Note: Today I can put up a picture of a burger on my blog and giggle; yesterday I would have licked my computer

DAY # 14 – 90 DAY FAST [Day 5 of 21 day Daniel Fast]

Took a couple of days off from blogging – not from fasting though.

TOP TEN THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN FASTING

# 4: Think of water as your best friend – it really helps to have it around.

Yesterday, was one of those days, you’ll probably have one too. I was feeling sorry for myself. I was hungry and my cravings were showing up. I wasn’t just thinking about foods that I enjoy eating; I think I was smelling some of them.  Everything sounded, or looked good. I saw my wife with some cheese and crackers, I just wanted a little, just one bite. A Carl’s Jr. commercial almost put me over the edge.

What to do?

Water and prayer or prayer and water – It’s what fasting is all about! Embrace it! Worship!

TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL READING: Matthew 5:1-14

[Just a note: I am really enjoying the 21 Day Devotional @ youversion.com. Each day it gives you something to reflect on and some days like today it actually gives you activities to do – this all helps when you are fasting]

Here what the devotional reading had to say today: Blessed are those who hunger… If you can relate to that, spend time meditating on this passage called Beatitudes or Blessings. Make a point today to count your blessings. Keep a journal with you all day to write down the blessings that God brings to your mind. Pray to thank Him for the blessings, even the ones as a result of enduring hardships or trials.

When reflecting on the beatitudes I was especially drawn to verse 8; which in the NLT says: “God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.” Made me think, here’s yet another great reason to fast, fact is; when I’m fasting – I’m sinning less.

Less sin, Drink more [WATER]! Probably never going to be a commercial jingle, but it makes me feel blessed and full!
