Prayer and fasting: days 20 & 21

We made it to day 21!

God has been just so good throughout these past 21 days of prayer and fasting. It was almost a struggle, but I even made it through my 24 hour fast (even though my sister made me forget and made me eat a bite of her food last night 😣😣😂). I kept trying to convince myself that I only needed to make it to midnight when my fast really ended at 6 a.m., but that was only because my hunger for food was competing with my hunger for God.

Whenever I write in my prayer journal I always end each entry with “thy kingdom come, thy will be done” in an effort to let go of my will and gain his. When I operate out of my will I fail….daily, but when I operate out of Gods will I win every time. Now, the win may not come in the form that we may want, but God always provides what we need.

If there is anything that I have gained or learned during this communion with God it’s that “when it’s my time, it’s my time”. God loves me and he only wants the best for me so all things work out in his perfect timing. Understandings of relationships, purpose, and current situations come as a process throughout life and I think I’m finally becoming okay with that. Some things don’t make sense for a long time, but understanding will open up/expand when God sees fit.

If you’ve been on this journey with me I pray that God has opened up your eyes of understanding about whatever you were praying for. He has the ability to move situations and problems that we can’t touch when he sees the sincerity and purity of our hearts and sacrifice. I encourage you to continue to pray and seek God even outside of your time if fasting. I truly believe that he’s in the process of doing some amazing things as we end 2019 and even as we enter 2020!

Prayer and fasting: days 18 & 17

I don’t have much to say today. For some odd reason I was extremely tired at work last night and of course I got off during my fast time and I was HUNGRY!!! Like it felt as if I hadn’t eaten anything for the past 12 hours. But that’s highly untrue because I eat snacks allllllll shift. Lol. Anyways, the devil almost got some food up out of me because I was not thinking about a fast once I finished giving report. I wanted to immediately eat and sleep. The Bible states that when times like these arise while fasting we should feast on the word of God. I plan on doing that until 10 am hits….then I’m gonna eat cereal and continue to do it.

Tomorrow I plan on doing a 24 hour fast, from 6 am to 6 am. I have already been trying to talk myself out of it. Lol. This falls right under “the stretch” I talked about in the last post and it challenges how much I’m really willing to sacrifice for what I need from God.

I well for sure keep you all updated. If you don’t hear from me again, expect the worst 😂😂

Love And light,

Prayer and fasting: day 17

Not gonna lie, I love church. It took me getting older and experiencing the presence of God for myself to truly come to this conclusion. When I was younger I hated coming to church because it “took me away from the fun things” that other people my age did. But these days I complain a lot about different things at work (I’m working on not doing that lol) and one of them is working on Sundays. In the past 2-3 years my spiritual walk and relationship with God has grown so bountifully and I just love hearing the word of God.

I must say, the word brought forth at my church is typically SUPER rich…..and yesterday was no different. The title of the message was Stretch with the focus scriptures being Luke 6:6-10 NIV. The main point that I gathered from the message was: some of you’re most astounding blessings will come from you being obedient and stepping out on faith when your current circumstances prove that your blessing can’t/ won’t happen. God will bless you right in the midst of the impossible…we just have to stretch!

Of course I left quite a bit of the message out and honestly I’m still in the middle of digesting it myself, but I mentioned it today because we are on the last “stretch” of our prayer and fasting. How is it that we need to stretch this week and ask God to help us? Is it with our unbelief? Faith? Prayer life? Relationships? What is it that God is requesting for us to do that we have yet to do because we are hiding behind our comfortable place in life when we should be pressing through the ugly to get to the blessing?

I know I have been ending with “growth can only go up from here”, but honestly, it can only go up with your obedience and with pressing forward. So with these last few days of the fast I’m encouraging you to step outside of yourself/norm into what God has called for you.

Prayer and fasting: days 14, 15 & 16

I was speaking to someone close to me the other morning and I was sitting there listening to her complain and spew hateful things about someone else, so I sat back and thought “my God, is this how I sound to other people??” If I sound this bad (which she was actually relatively mild) then I really do need to change. I’m a big complainer and I hate listening to others telling me to do the right thing 😂 I know, childish. Buuuuuuttttt in my defense most people still treat me like a child.

In the same thought while I was listening to her there was also the thought that she thinks it’s okay to express this to me. Don’t get me wrong, it is okay, but it also means that I’ve done the same to her without correcting myself! The devotional today spoke on creating a freshness in God so that your spirit is continually renewed. After that conversation I figured that I haven’t been renewing like I need to in order to have that freshness.

This week and from here on, I plan to increase my consciousness and awareness of God and how I operate under him. It’s one thing to know God, but another to be fresh in him!

Prayer and fasting: days 12 & 13

My night at work on Tuesday was exceptionally busy and of course I was feeling overwhelmed at the beginning of the shift. Unfortunately, this carried on for the rest of the 12 hours. Lol. I had to step aside (I do this pretty often at work) and ask God for the strength that I don’t have. I just knew that the only positive way of getting through the shift was to ask God for the strength that he had because I wouldn’t have made it with my own.

You know, sometimes I think on how God tells us that he won’t put more on us that we can bare, we act like we believe it, but then we turn around and act like death is upon us because we feel overwhelmed. Lol. I do it constantly but that’s mainly because I like to be dramatic. After I prayed and was able to sit for a second I listened to this song:

Never be defeated- Rich Tolbert Jr.

I had actually been listening to this song all week and it has completely gotten me amped up! Hopefully it can do the same for you.

Since today is thanksgiving (happy thanksgiving, btw) I feel like it’s only right that I add in what I’m thankful for: relationships, provisions and love. All that I have needed, God has already provided. Some stuff I just have to tap into or wait for his perfect timing to receive! But that’s a different topic for a different day.

I pray that you all enjoy your time off if you have it and/or your family if you’ll be around them!

Prayer and fasting: day 11

Sooooo funny how the devotional today talked about God doing a new work in us. I was on my way home from work this morning while on the phone with my mother and I was telling her how I was going to break my fast this morning because I was so hungry 😩😂😂. She told me not to because God has been doing some wonderful things lately.

The devotional mentions Isaiah 43 where it speaks of God making a way in the wilderness which just means- where there is nothing, I am everything! When you feel like you are in a deserted land just know that I can STILL make a way! He just does wonderful things where and when we feel like nothing can be salvaged.

Simply put- what an amazing God.

There is a song entitled The Isaiah song which is based off of chapter 43, I have listened to this song 100 times this year and it just keeps on getting better! Check it out here:

The Isaiah Song- All Nations Worship Assembly (ft. Chandler Moore & Benita Jones)

I pray that you enjoy your day and are refreshed in knowing that God can do anything!

Prayer and fasting: days 8, 9 & 10

This weekend for me was one of rest and recuperation. For the past week if it wasn’t a morning that I was at work, God had me up at like 3/4 a.m. and I could not rest for anything. So of course I used that time to pray, meditate and read my bible…because what else is there to do?? Lol.

So at the (kinda) midpoint of this fast, I can truly say that God has opened up eyes of understanding to reveal that the things that I THOUGHT I wanted aren’t truly what I want or needed. God honestly has my best interest at heart and he knows what’s best for me in the long run. One of my favorite preachers always says “you can see TO the corner, but God can see AROUND the corner!” Which just tells me that he sees far beyond what my little mind can even comprehend.

My challenge for you today is that you allow God to have more of your time than anything else.

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭73:26‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Allow God to be your strength and your mind so that he can guide you and open up YOUR eyes of understanding!

Prayer and fasting: day 7

Last night I was weak and I had to draw strength from my people. There was something that I REALLY didn’t want to do, but I did it anyways because it was the right thing. I wouldn’t have made it through without the prayers and support if the ones who are close to me.

It is so important to have some people In Your corner who not only truly love you, but who also truly love God. Often times God sends specific people your way to help fill you up and push you closer to him. Cherish these people. Pray for and with them. Thank God for them.

I challenge you today to make more of an effort In your meaningful relationships if you can. Watch what God does for you!

Prayer and fasting: days 5 & 6

I was super exhausted from work yesterday so I didn’t have the energy to write. Actually, these past two weeks of work have been super draining for me and I just haven’t been able to adjust! I mean last night I almost went off on the nail lady (she actually did waste a whole complete hour of my time though, it would’ve been justified. Lol) but you could tell that I really needed rest.

After church last night I came home and went to sleep early, around 12:30 a.m. for me, woke up around 3:30 am and just could not go back to sleep for anything! With times like this I take to opportunity to just sit in the stillness and quietness that God provides and I talk to him or I read the Bible. This morning I decided to do both because it eventually fell into my fasting time.

I have been reading 2nd Samuel lately and I happened to be on the 14th chapter where King David’s son is basically trying to get back in David’s good graces after he kills his half brother…Issa mess. It’s a mess but this is how much of a mess we are when we come to God. Thankfully, he loves us enough to hold onto us and take us back into his arms.

This is where fasting comes into play, during seasons of change and frustration fasting takes away distractions to bring us closer to God. Here’s an excerpt from today’s devotional:

I know it’s only day 6, but if we allow God to be God and we finish out this fast strong, we won’t only be closer to God but we will also have clarity, confidence and a fresh anointing.
