Today was a good day! I meditated a lot of Psalms 138:8 “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me”. I know in my heart I do not like soda yet I wanted Barq’s rootbeer today, I wanted to eat another meal besides my normal routine.
I was driving in the car and my stomach started talking to me. I decided to say a silent prayer to myself since there was another passenger in the car. I asked God to fill me up with His word since my mind is playing tricks on me. The devil is playing tricks on me. He is telling me to eat whatever I want and that I will not make it through this fast. As soon as I reached my destination I started reading the Word. I had to. I went to sleep after no longer having hunger pangs just filled up with the Word. Sometimes God doesn’t answer ours prayers immediately but He does answer them. We have to just listen for His voice and be patient. He answered my prayer today and I am grateful for a faithful God.
Today I ate a little different. My body wasn’t agreeing with me today everything I ate gave me an upset stomach.
Breakfast: Hummus with flat bread
Lunch: salad with broccoli, raw sunflower seeds, cucumbers, carrots, and avocado with an olive oil and red pepper dressing that I made.
Dinner: stir-fry vegetables with no rice
Snacks: popcorn, raw mixed nuts with organic dried apples, and more hummus.
This afternoon I read Revelation 7-9 for bible study this evening and Luke 3 for the fast.
It’s so important to drink lots of water during this process it helps a lot with hunger. I miss chewing gum.
