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 you.....as 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....
