Day two was a good day. The oatmeal was good a second day in a row but a salad for lunch and beans for supper needs to change! Anyway, it is not about the food is it? Here are some of the things people have shared about the fast.
Kristen and Josh Levitt are fasting from TV because they felt it was a bigger sacrifice as they are already on a stringent diet.
Mike Zimmers said that the prayer time made the Tofu worth it.
Rich Graham wrote me that he swam his personal best on day one of his fast.
Jesi Kendall started her fast nearly a week ago so she could go on vacation tomorrow but still benefit from the fast.
Larry Endecott agreed with me that he had a headache too. By the way no headache for me today!
One friend shared that he was trying to hide his fast from his wife because she would make fun. Good luck with that one!
Oh, and there was a great debate over whether we should serve donuts and coffee in the cafe @indiancreek this week. The result is that we will serve Daniel Fast friendly veggy and fruit snacks. Gotta love it!
It is fun to see people giving God a chance to speak to them. I’ve heard stories about people devoting extra time to prayer and Bible study. It is only day two and I had someone tell me they had a significant revelation. Yes, there are the comments about craving coffee but excitement is already building for the Ridiculous Worship event Sunday night. I guess one way to say it is, anticipation that God is at work is building. I can hardly wait!
Here is a scripture that God laid on my heart for this fast. It may be just personal or it could be for all of us. I lean toward the latter but I’ll let you decide: Ezekiel 11:19 – I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them. I will take away their stony, stubborn heart and give them a tender, responsive heart, so they will obey my decrees and regulations. Then they will truly be my people and I will be their God.
I’m praying and claiming that scripture for us Indian Creek!
