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!
Growth can only go up from here!
Love and light,
