The New You Resolution Day Two
Day Two! Our first non-church day fasting and praying together.
I had a VERY difficult time getting out of bed today. I wanted to keep sleeping. This is not normal for me. I typically have a fairly easy time waking up around 5:30am. I struggled with a headache for most of the day. Finally, this afternoon, it went away. I am actually feeling good at this point.
For those who missed my post yesterday, I am fasting from meats, sugar, junk food. I am eating fruits, vegetables, lentals, some whole grains. I ate a fruit smoothie for breakfast. Erica made a vegetable soup last night. I ate that for lunch. I ate a banana as a snack this afternoon. I have not drank enough water today. That is always something I struggle with.
I had an impromptu prayer meeting after coming to the church this morning. Something was going on in my office, so I left and went to the prayer room. I had a quick and powerful time expressing myself to God. I encourage you to jump into these types of conversations with God throughout the day. LISTEN. He will speak to you. What is he saying?
Sometimes during a fast, I feel heaviness and even slight depression. It does not last through the day, but will linger here and there when I think about what I am fasting from. If this happens to you, don’t worry. It is normal is MISS what you normally enjoy. You will have cravings. That is normal. Supplement or replace your activities with reading the Bible, prayer, conversation with others. If you struggle with this, be honest with someone you trust. Have them speak words of encouragement to you. Make sure you go to someone that is also fasting. This is very important.
How was your day two? Please comment on this post!
All for now,
