New You Resolution Day 16

It’s Monday!

I am still feeling the momentum from Saturday and Sunday.  It was amazing to join with over a 100 guys on Saturday morning, hang out, eat breakfast, and hear Ted’s story.  I have to admit that it was odd to be fasting and preparing breakfast. I ate part of the breakfast and avoided part of it.  Other than that, it was smooth sailing.  I was stunned at how many strangers were at church on Saturday and Sunday.  Ted really drew in a slew of guests.  There were some amazing stories of God touching the hearts of men AND women.

In my devotional Bible reading, I can’t get out of Matthew chapter 13.  I read it each morning and chew on each part.  Today, I was locked into verses 44-46.  I want those verses to be lived out in my life.  I also read a lot of the Bible for sermon preparation each week.  This reading is all over the place and is a slightly different type of study.  Today, I am starting to dig into the message for this coming Sunday.

What have you been reading lately? What is God telling you?


I have switched my fast this final week.  I have switched meat with carbs.  So I am fasting from most carbs. I am continuing to eat veggies, fruit, and minimal amounts of brown rice or sweet potato.  I am not eating sugar, bread, chips (this is the BIGGEST for me), pasta, oats (this is also BIG for me), etc.

It still amazes me how a limited fast like this is a struggle.   We went to Jason’s Deli after church yesterday.  I can fill up on a salad and still be upset that I didn’t eat a cracker or bread or ice cream.  God speak to me!!

If you haven’t fasted yet…JUMP IN this week!  Even fasting for one day produces results in your life.  In fact, I encourage everyone to continually fast throughout 2017: once a week or once a month.

love ya’ll!
