2013 Daniel Fast: Day 2

The Fast 
Yesterday, my church started our 2nd Daniel's Fast. Unfortunately, I have been under the weather for the last few days so I haven't really been cooking.Yesterday, I had a fatoussh salad. It was so good. It's just Romain lettuce and tabbouleh  Today, I was really wasn't feeling all that well. I didn't get up to eat till about 2pm. However, I had sala and chip (tortilla), broccoli and rice, and a wrap (chicken, spinach, and salsa on whole wheat tortilla). My children has already murdered all of the fruit I bought for the fast so I have to actually go shopping again.

Prayer Time - Focus

Today I was just really thank God for all that He has done for me. I didn't ask for anything! I just wanted to say thank you. Life has drastically changed for me since 2011. Where as I was at time unsure of God's undying love for me. Today, I am not only sure of it, but wallowing in it. So I just spent time saying thank you. Things are not idealistic for my family and I; however, I am beyond grateful for the transition that we are in. I know God loves us, and all things are working out for our good even when its seems like its not.

Engaging my Faith

Sunday Morning, as I was getting dressed, I heard Jessie Duplantis say "Life requires you to train your memory". I thought this was an awesome statement. In the last fast I journaled my prayers and I also blogged. This gave me the opportunity to go back see just how much God had done for me since the fast. Because I have point of reference to know that God does hear my prayers my faith is that much stronger to trust God when things are difficult in life. Instead of panicking, I gladly receive opposition as an opportunity.
