First Day Eating After My 30 Day Fast

February 8, 2017 at 10:42 AM
“But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; in those days they will fast." Luke 5:35 When I finally understood this verse I cried like a baby. Three years with the most remarkable, most alive, unpredictable human that ever walked this earth, it’s no wonder the d... [More]

Fasting Day 26: How To Literally Feed Hunger Without Braking You Fast

February 4, 2017 at 8:20 AM
After fasting 40 days on water, Satan tempted Jesus to turn a delicious looking loaf-shaped stone into freshly baked bread. In the grips of hunger, Jesus responded, “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Honestly, that has always been a... [More]

The Grief of Ending My Fast

April 24, 2016 at 1:50 PM
After 16 days of fasting, in one hour I will end my fast and enter back into the land of eating. Normally this is an exciting time of anticipation. I think about how delicious the food will taste. Not today. Today I knelt and prayed, and for no reason I can explain, started to cry. Between great sob... [More]

Find a Place to Pray Out Loud (Fasting Day 16)

April 24, 2016 at 7:19 AM
   I feel sorry for my inner city friends who have a hard time finding a place outdoors to pray out loud. I hate praying in my head.

Fasting Motive Exposed

April 22, 2016 at 3:05 PM
It was around 7 pm and I was deep into the fasting and detox state. I knew that if didn’t turn the TV off and get into some real food, like the bible, I was going to fail.

April 17, 2016 at 3:07 PM
Woke this morning greeted by a feeling of joy and anticipation. Ah, there it is. Finally. It’s been a rough eight-day go to get here but it’s sure worth the battle. A big part of finding that fasting high is to get the fast locked in. If I have not fasted for awhile or have let my eatin... [More]

Fasting Failure

April 10, 2016 at 2:14 PM
Yesterday, day 3 on my juice fast, and it started well. Bible verses were going down like fine wine. Prayer was not one-sided. It was a Saturday so I could spend my whole fasting day in solitude, not forced to tune the Spirit in and out between tasks. I had, staring at the wall time, sitting and jus... [More]

Fasting on Good Friday

March 25, 2016 at 2:56 PM
“. . . do this in remembrance of Me.” 1 Cor 1:24 I am spending Good Friday alone fasting for the sole purpose to remember. I will think of Jesus and the cross. I think about Jesus a lot. We are in a relationship together. But usually when I do, it’s how I am failing my side of t... [More]

My 2016 New Years Resolution: More Pain

January 17, 2016 at 2:33 PM
“Saying no will actually create time, one of the most valuable resources we have been given by God. And with this extra time I have painfully carved out, I can then start to say yes to purposeful living.”   At the end of a busy year I hear so many of my friends say, “I cannot... [More]
