Fasting:challenging yet exciting

Many devote to a fast at the beginning of the year. Though it calls for serious commitment and discipline, fasting can be exciting. If you are among the fasters don’t lose sight of your goals and your motive.

A few days into the fast you may lose the excitiment as it becomes either too challenging or too boring to continue. This frequently leads to guilt and hoplessness
Remember; God doesn’t want us running from Him out of fear and desperation. Because of His love, grace and mercy, He wants us to run to Him. He says He will never leave you or forsake you. “That is unconditional love!!!!”

Most of us tend to give up and hide from God when things do not work out according to plan. During your fast, if you fail in anyway, remember the Holy Spirit is with you. He is yearning to participate in every step you take. Listen to Him, talk to Him and follow His advice.

As you renew your mind through His Word, and get closer to Him in prayer and meditation, you will be able to walk in the blessing and the good plans He has for you.
God is our strong tower. We run to Him and we are safe. (Proverbs 18:10)

Drink lots of purified water, do some type of light activity and have enough rest and sleep.
