Daniel Fast Day 8 and 9

"I am the Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt. Open your mouth and I will fill it." Psalm 81:10

"For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe even if you were told." Habakkuk 1:5

"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing."
Isaiah 43: 18, 19

Today is the last day of my fast. It has been a long 9 days but I do not regret doing the fast AT ALL. I have learned so much about myself. When I started this I was going to focus on something different about every 2 days. I never moved past the first thing (my relationship with Jacob). The Lord kept me there because he knew we needed it. Our relationship is so much better! It has been a difficult 9days (again, God's plan) but an important time spent on building our relationship.
I have learned how much emphasis I put on food, caffeine drinks, and of course, chocolate! Who can live without chocolate? And coffee in the morning?

I don't know where I will go from here. Will I try it again for the full 21 days? Will I try fasting for one day at a time? I'm just not sure. I do know what I am getting myself into the next time! Thanks for praying for me!

You Did It!
That's great Michele. I know God really blessed you during this time.
I'll look for that book. I've never heard of the Daniel Fast. Sounds really interesting.
Lent is about to start and I know Baptist don't do Lent, but I think it is a good practice. I'm still praying about what to do this year.
