Fasting and Fishing

Fasting and Fishing

I don’t eat cans of Vienna sausages with saltine crackers very often, but when I do, I’m in a bass boat.

Challenge: Fast Idols Instead Of Items

Challenge: Fast Idols Instead Of Items

In preparation for the 2019 Daniel Fast, God convicted my heart and my motives. My desire was to hear from Him, seeking His guidance and intervention with concerns in my life and my family’s. However, I approached Him with idols and an unclean heart.

It's A Heart Thing, Not A Stomach Thing

It's A Heart Thing, Not A Stomach Thing

The 21-day Daniel Fast is about to begin.  My wife and I are stocked up on nuts, quinoa, and unsweetened cocoa powder (if you’ve done the fast, you know about the no bake cookies), and I’ve already been scouring the internet for possible recipes.  My mind is extremely focused on the food, and especially the caffeine, I’m about to give up.  For 21 days, we put down cheeseburgers, cake, tobacco, coffee, etc. and it can be very tempting to fixate on those things.  My encouragement/challenge to you during this time is this: fasting is not so much about your stomach, as it is your heart.
