First Day Eating After My 30 Day Fast

“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 disciples grew to love Jesus deeply. And then poof, He’s gone in a cloud. The bridegroom was taken away. It’s no wonder they fasted because maybe, just maybe, they could recapture a renewed closeness to the one they loved.
This is my first day of eating, and I feel a deep lose. I know that may not be balanced, but I do. Thirty days of fellowship alone with Jesus. Now back to the world of busyness, distractions, responsibilities, endless conversations and Donald Trump everywhere! I’m sure I will recover and numb myself with this world again, but for today I have a small taste of what those 12 felt when they watched Jesus disappear into the clouds.
