Fasting Day 1 - November 6, 2012

First off, the reason why I am fasting is to grow more in my spiritual walk with Christ. I have been so stuck in sin that I forget about why I am alive today. I am so thankful and blessed to have a relationship with God. Honestly, I have not been on fire for the Lord. I know it is because of college. I have been so focused and determined to do well in school that I forget the one who has blessed me so much and it is Him. Today after class, I came home and wow the smell of some yummy stir fry was ready for me to eat, but I remembered that today was my first day of fasting, so I prayed and ask to not be tempted to eat the food. While doing homework I just kept asking God CAN I EAT YET? My goal was to fast until Friday the ninth and I have already wanted to eat something...So I picked up my bible and read Matthew 4. This verse really hit me and I was so inlove with Jesus, But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4 . Jesus just continues to show me that I do not need food, but need the Word of God. How wonderful and powerful is that!!!? Just been drinking water and eating raw fruits/vegetables. I just want to leave off saying that no matter what course and obstacle you are giving God will pull you through it if you trust in Him and give Him your everything. God Bless. 

* Today I got to vote for the presidential campaign and amendments. Wow does it feel pretty nice to be an adult!! But I think I totally did the backside wrong because there were all these judges and I was confused as ever!!! Hopefully my vote counted though!!

See you tomorrow & Best Regards,
