Heard a great message from church today about prayer and fasting. Today is the first day of my 21-day commitment of nothing but fruits, veggies, juices, and liquids only. It's going to be tough because I love hamburgers and Chik-fil-A! My purpose of fasting is not only to get rid of the toxins in my body, but to have a closer relationship with God. I get so consumed with work, photography, editing, television, Facebook, fashion magazines, political media, economy crisis..must I go on.. that I just need a break and get deeper with my spiritual soul.
Our soul needs some fine-tuning too like our cars, and that closer walk with God is what I long for. Agreement. Alignment. Assignment. To feed our souls starts with an agreement, then we will experience alignment in our lives, and then we can go out there and carry out the assignment.
There's something that I feel God is calling me to do, but I'm not even sure if I'm just hearing things because I really want to do this since high school but never really did anything about it. When I do think about this opportunity, I start doubting...so therefore, I'm fasting to really see if this is a "true calling."
Dear family, friends, and blog readers, please keep me in your prayers and good thoughts for the next three weeks. I want to step up to the plate and do something to serve the Lord, and I just pray that everything will fall into right places when the fasting is over.
**I challenge and support you to feed your soul too! Please check out the Awake's website to know more about praying and fasting :)
