Well, I was inspired to do this fast and tomorrow is the big starting day.
I hope to record my thoughts here about how it goes and hopefully share something of use for others. Many things are on my mind as I go into this. I am seeking God to intervene on a very personal matter that I cannot reveal here. I have many other hopes through this fast. I hope to learn more about my God and my Savior. I hope to become closer to God and hear His voice.
I have a few specific things that are happening that I sorely need guidance on in my life. I also have some personal pain in my body that is troubling and I am praying for God to heal.
But this fast is not supposed to be about what I want, except that I want to know God. I am often consumed by the grace and mercy that I have received from Him. I know that He alone is my Rock and my Fortress. The old songs and Hymns we sang in Palestine Baptist Church so many years ago echo in my heart all the more as I get older. The old language used was so flavorful and meaningful, and respectful.
So we are off. I hope to check back in over the next 21 days, but if that is where I go, it is where He leads me.
