I hope you are having a fantastic Sunday and are doing well, one week into this fast.
Back in the summer of 2010 Debbie and I moved from St. John’s NL to Edmonton AB…needless to say it was quite the drive. But for ten days, yes we made a trip of it seeing Canada along the way, we just got to be together. The goal was to make it to Edmonton, and get our lives rolling there – but we had such a fun time just being together.
If you are like me, during this time of fasting you are likely seeking after God to do some incredible things in your life, or maybe even asking him for some direction. I do trust God will come through and do some amazing things, but don’t miss the joy of the journey. I know, I know, joy of the journey while fasting…are you kidding me??? But, enjoy the closeness that God desires to have with you, enjoy the trusting and the dependancy that happens during this season of your relationship with Him. Enjoy just being with Him…allow the miracles and the direction He provides to be the icing on the cake – but know that the true beauty of this time is found in simply growing in Him.
How lovely is your dwelling place,
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
I long, yes, I faint with longing
to enter the courts of the Lord.
With my whole being, body and soul,
I will shout joyfully to the living God.
