Today I have a post up at The M.O.M. Initiative and they are having two weeks of great give-aways. Check out the post Sibling Squabbles here.
Yesterday I fasted from the time I woke up until 3 PM. I wonder if God uses fasting to show me how desperately sinful I am. I acted cranky, frustrated, and entitled. It was not a picture of dependence on God, nor a great moment of spiritual insight or intimacy.
But I am not going to let that experience keep me from fasting. Fasting is how Jesus started His earthly ministry. Many of the men who were instrumental in the Great Awakening regularly fasted and prayed.
Oh that I would hunger more for God who satisfies eternally than food which only temporarily satisfies.
Have you ever fasted? What was your purpose for fasting? Any fasting tips?
I can't wait to hear from you.
