I heard a great word in service today and oddly enough the Pastor was discussing fasting. Thank God I am fasting to draw closer to God because if not, I would have definitely felt awkward because of what he said. He said something along these lines, “Fasting does not make you holy. God will not hear your prayers over anyone elses because you are fasting. If you’re fasting to become more holy then you should stop fasting and go eat ten cream puffs.” I don’t even know what a cream puff is but I am glad that is not the case for me. Later he went on to say, “Because we serve a God of goodness, He will bless you no matter if you are good or not.” So many people fail to realize that God is good to them all the time even if they do not walk after Him. He is always looking out for His greatest creation yet people call it luck, I call it favor!
Today I was a bad girl and didn’t eat my first meal until about 6 pm today but it was amazing and delicious. I had a small bag of mixed raw nuts during service. Then after service I had a small bag of freshly popped popcorn and a hand full of my tortilla chips. That was it all day. Lots of water though but no food. So after searching high and low for soft tortilla wraps with no preservatives, I finally found some but they were frozen and I was hungry so that wasn’t going to work. Then I walked my way over to the taco aisle and discovered white corn hard shell tacos which are all natural!
I made a bean and corn filling for my tacos. The recipe was from vegetarian times. http://www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/9129.
I added a few of my own things as usual: mushrooms, spinach, fresh black ground pepper, avocado, and vegan cheese. (Which wasn’t too bad … The cheese.) I didn’t use the sour cream and I also had a little bit of brown rice on the side. Amazing meal and I will definitely make this again after the fast, it was very good.
Today I read Luke 5 for the fast and Revelation 10-12 for bible study.
