Last night ended our Daniel Fast.  God done some amazing things in mine and Hannah’s life. 

  1. It brought us closer together
  2. We are reading in God’s word together more
  3. God sent us a child!
  4. We received God’s direction
  5. We are seeing fruit in our ministries
I am so ready to see what God continues to do.  Several did the fast with us or are doing it now.  If that is you then know that I am praying for you.  My home church, Denton Wesleyan Church, started a fast on the 1st.  I am praying for them and I hope God does amazing things there.  I hope my family jumps on board to because I want to see breakthrough in their lives!  
So how did we celebrate?
Hannah and I stayed up and waiting until 12:01 am so we could eat some Dominos.  Hannah ate pizza and I ate some wings.  It was great!  Today we are going to eat some Japanese food!  I am going to stop eating as much though.  I am going to stop over eating so I can keep this weight off.  
Everyone should do a fast.  I am going to start doing at least one a year because God deserves that.

Fasting – Book Review

Jentezen Franklin is one amazing dude.  He is the pastor of Free Chapel in GA.  Through this book, I understand why God has been blessing his life and the life of his church.  

About a month ago, I felt like God was telling me that I needed to fast.  I have never done a Biblical fast before.  I looked into it and came across this book.  One reason for reading it was because I didn’t want to harm my body and it walks you through ways to avoid that.  The book talks about different fast that are Biblical.  It also talks about men and women of the Bible who fast and God done same awesome things through their fast.  I learnt a lot about why God calls us to Fast in Matthew 6:16-18.  It isn’t an option to fast or not.  It is a discipline of a Christian.  

I am by no means boosting about myself.  I want to seek God with all I have and I think that when you fast that is what you are doing.  I hope you (Followers of Christ) will fast and seek God with all that you are.  I encourage you to read this book.  It is a great read and I learnt so much about this subject that I did not have a clue about before.
