Daniel Fast Day 11

12 Jan

Thank you everyone for your continuous encouragement during the Daniel Fast. Today was a bit hard for me because I am missing my normal foods. (This was torture)

I know someone recently commented that I should make this a lifestyle but right now I’m not ready to. I decided to fast for the right reasons, to honor God with a pure heart, willing to give up something to draw closer to Him, and allow myself to gain mental clarity. So far so good. I’m so grateful for that. But, knowing that the entire fast would be a bit of a rocky road is also good. God didn’t intend for our lives to be good all the time. Of course there will be trials and tribulations and this allows us to stay close to God. It allows us to get on our knees and pray to Him to help us get THROUGH the trials. He will never give us more than we can handle. Even if we inflict it upon ourselves. He is always there for us and always there to bring us back to Him by the trials that we face.

Today I read Luke 8 and enjoyed a great bible study.

I ate potatoes with veggie sausages for breakfast, organic steel oats with apples and cinnamon for lunch, and a veggie stir fry for dinner.

This evening I decided to no longer document my journey and again I thank everyone for your kind thoughts and encouragement. I have 9 days left and I am looking forward to them, God willing. I will continue blogging but just know I will complete the fast! Thanks for your support especially Willow, nightshade, watw, worrywarts, John, poeticjourney, and Bernadette!

Daniel Fast Day 9

10 Jan

Yesterday I was so sick!!! The entire day! I had to force myself to eat oats and a banana around 3 in the afternoon. I’m sure it was those amazing tacos that I had but I don’t think ill eat it ever again. I drank Pellegrino with lemon and had a bottle of water. I was not feeling it at all.

I did manage to complete my bible reading for the fast, Luke 6 which was when Jesus chose His disciples. I do realize that I have more talks with God and I am conscience of what I’m saying or how I am reacting to certain things. I notice more people talking to me about the fast and their issues. It allows me to uplift those who I would have never thought needed the encouragement. I love the person I am becoming.

Be blessed!

Daniel Fast Day 8

9 Jan

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.
