Wow! Can you believe we only have three days left? I think this is the longest I have ever deprived myself of anything…especially coffee and sushi! But, when I feel myself getting excited to drink coffee and eat sushi, I have to ask myself, “do I get this excited about connecting with God?” That should be our heart’s desire… to connect passionately with God.
I was just reading Mark 8:34-36 today. It says, ” Then he called the crowd to him along with his disciples and said: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it. 36What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?”
Wow! What a challenge…to continually die to self!
“Purpose today to make fasting a regular part of your Christian walk and to watch as the Lord reveals himself to you in wonderful and miraculous ways.”
Thoughts for Your Journal:
1. What are some ways you have had to deny yourself during this fast?
2. What are some things God wants you to continue to deny yourself of so that He can be glorified?
Only 3 days left…you can make it!
