Going on a fast.

Post by Jasmine on Wed Feb 29, 2012 11:48 am

I am going on a fast. I need the strength to not eat 'cause I love food. Plus, if I don't eat I get nauseous and I get a headache. I also get weak. I plan to do it for a couple of days. I still have Thursday and Friday to go to school. Also, I don't want the adults at my school to get suspicious and think I am trying to lose wait. The goal of the fast is to reconnect with God and to nourish our relationship. Also, to make a shift in a season in my life and to change my attitude towards everything, basically to change me. Please pray all goes well and I am able to do this.

Please be careful doing this. I know the bible says to fast and pray, but I want to remind you that there are many different kinds of fasts. There are meatless fasts, and no sweets fasts. You can also fast from fast food, or even just one of your meals for the day, however God leads you. I have even fasted from coffee in the past (my most desired drink)! Most of the time in my experience with fasting, if it is God lead...the headaches and dizzy spells are not present...like its ordained for prayer. Thats not to say that the temptation to break the fast isn't there, but there is a strength that comes from God when it was led by him in my experience. Sorry, I know your a big girl that can make your own decisions...I just couldn't stop the mama in me from coming out! lol! These are just my thoughts...


Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
