So that previous post was a long winded way of saying I’m considering a fast and want to educate others a little more about it. Linny brought it up on her blog by requesting a fast today for the orphan, specifically some people’s roadblocks to adoption. I’ve never fasting before, even a little bit. I read through this guide about it and decided to start preparing. The confessing sins part was way harder than I expected. I was horrified when I wrote down everything that’s been on my heart/mind. But now that it’s all out there, I’m feeling it fade. That balloon of anger toward God finally got popped. I get what he said about fasting being a humbling experience. Who am I really, against almighty God? And who is God? I don’t know Him as well as I should. For the record, I only fasted breakfast and I didn’t even get to praying for the orphan, too busy trying to get myself off the ground. I’m going to start slow and work my way up to something big. I get that I need to do this for my spiritual health. I don’t want Jesus to come back and find me like this. Time to shape up.
I’m interested in hearing from others if you have experience with fasting/prayer as well.
