FAST 2011

It is the 12th day of the fast, I am doing the Daniel's Fast, I really wanted to do the full fast, but due to medical conditions, I am not allowed to completely fast.  Those of you who have been on the full fast, I AM IN AWE OF YOU!!
It is amazing how we crave what we are missing out on.....
I can't have meat, or sweets etc., you would think that I was being completely deprived of food.

It made my heart hurt today and pause to think....why do I not crave the things of the Lord like this? Why do I not yearn for and crave my time with the Lord when I miss it? Why do I not feel starved when I have not spent enough time in prayer?

Lord, that is my desire that I would physically and emotionally long for if I had been deprived of Your presence. Just that realization was a great awakening for my heart that this fast has brought.

Thank you Lord, for visiting me and speaking to my heart....

  1. Thanks Sherri for this wonderful reminder of being hungry for more of God. I too can relate and have asked the Lord to help me to remember to realize I'm starving when I miss out of time with the Lord!
