New You Resolution Day Six
Welcome to Day Six,
I have had some good conversations with folks yesterday and today about their fasts. Everyone is working through it differently. I am always glad to get your comments here as well.
This particular fast is more like a marathon than a sprint. Don’t be concerned with how you feel on a specific day or time. We are wanting a paradigm shift. We are wanting a completely pure/authentic personality and character. This will take a while. In fact, the fast is simply the beginning. However, if you will be faithful through the fast with prayer, Bible reading, and community, you will find yourself in a good position for 2017. Also, remember not to compare yourself to others. This is so tempting. This is between you and God. Trust the process, don’t rush it.
I am actually buckling down a little bit on my fast. Removing some more items from my edible list. I think that is needed for me at this point. I’m not sure if I have mentioned it on here, but I have been reading the Bible in Spanish this year. I typically read 1-3 chapters in Spanish and then a couple chapters in English. I really want to learn better Spanish for our mission trips.
On Friday our offices are closed so I don’t see many people. It is a day to separate from the pace of life and really rest for the weekend. I don’t review anything for Sunday. I do have a wedding rehearsal this afternoon, so I will be heading to that soon. Tomorrow, I will pick the sermon back up and dig deeper into what God has for us. Can’t wait to see you all on Sunday!
