So… I feel like I gotta tell y’all.
I didn’t really do the 7-Day Daniel Fast this last week.
Well, I did… at the end. But not at first.
I could give y’all a bunch of excuses, but it boiled down to: my husband went out of town Wednesday night and I didn’t go to the grocery store, so it just… didn’t happen.
Some of y’all did do the Daniel Fast! And let me tell you… from the emails and messages that I’ve gotten from you that were blessed… guess what?
You sharing your blessing… blessed me! And it challenged me! And it fulfilled one of my favorite verses:
I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— 12that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. Romans 1:11-12
And it is actually THE reason that I started this blog in the first place… because I needed help and I needed accountability.
On Sunday, I had the pleasure of crossing paths with two of you that were really enjoying your Daniel Fasts and just your excitement and awe at how life-changing it is and the spirit inside of you… well, I went home and I was like “I am going to make this Daniel Fast thing happen for me, even if it’s just the last couple of days.”
It probably didn’t hurt that on Sunday morning I couldn’t find a THING to wear in my closet that fit right. I mean… we are talking
Everything was excessively UNflattering because nothing fit. I mean, we are talking about things that fit me a few weeks ago and on Sunday I was positively POURING out of them.
But, like I said on Day 623: Perfectly Prepared, I trust in the slow work of God.
And He worked through you.
Because on Sunday afternoon, I got back on that wagon and, of course, immediately felt better. Immediately felt my mind turn to God. Immediately felt the freedom beginning to wash over me again.
So. To you who encouraged me simply by sharing your love of the work of God.
