Everyone has struggles in life. Most of the time we just try to tough it out. Why do we find it so hard to ask for help? Human nature has us clinging to control but so much of life is out of our hands. We can control putting something in our mouth.
But usually it’s what come out of our mouth that is the problem. It’s the corruption in our hearts that leaps off the tongue and we get into a lot of trouble with hurtful and careless words.
I want to fast mostly for clarity of direction in my career. I have made some pretty drastic moves lately and second guess myself a lot. I’m hoping by giving up eating and drinking certain things for a specific time, I can focus more on the Holy Spirit than my flesh.
I have gone as much as a week without solid food before. It was a challenge. Still, I did feel closer to God.
