Tomorrow, our church will launch a seven-day fast appropriately labeled Seven. I am so excited/nervous about how this will go because I am not, by nature, a happy faster.
I am a whiner.
But I believe in the power of this. I believe miracles are created when we make a space for God to move.
I am praying about so many things right now. Big things. Bigger things, in fact, than I ever imagined I would pray about. So I am viewing this time as a gift. It’s the chance to pursue the presence of God with those I love the most, knowing there is much treasure to be gathered as we go.
Isn’t the fast I choose to break the chains of wickedness, to untie the ropes of the yoke, to set the oppressed free, and to tear off every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry? THEN your light will appear like the dawn, and your recovery will come quickly. Isaiah 58
I’ve never done a seven-day fast before, so my plan is to blog my way through it. I’d love for you to join me (on the blog journey OR, if you’re feeling really fancy, on the actual fast.) As always, honesty is my policy, so prepare your heart for a fair amount of whining. Won’t this be fun?
Ready to be hungry,
