Breakthrough

​Looking through old blog entries, and I found this rough draft from right before I started fasting about my family.  So I finished it and published it.  You ever pray something and then get involved with other stuff and forget you prayed for that?

I didn’t even know fasting was for normal-average-people-21st-century folks!  I never would have seriously considered this.

But I found a book somewhere: Fasting to Freedom – the gift of Fasting by Chantel Ray.

I want to post this today because I’m actually doing it!   “to break the yoke of oppression” (Isaiah) off of my family.

I expect to be posting about some wonderful things in answer to my desperation. (God YOU are on the hook. Not to be bossy. Just desperate.)

I could not have accomplished this

 without that book

and without Jesus. 

Strike that.  

Reverse it

Rough draft I found today:

I am deeply troubled about my family, God.

We have some gnar-gnar issues.  

Complicated. 

Painful

distracting

 controversial.

!!!!!!!!!!


I

 need You

God

OR I AM toast.

 

I need Your mercy and power and grace.
What do I do Father?

I need wisdom.

I am searching.

Thank You JESUS for my sick bed : it forces me to slow down; it lets me focus. 🙏🌷🙏

Thank YOU for that book I found. 🙏🌷🙏

Thank YOU for the Holy Spirit: my personal Counselor: I cannot live without You. 🙏🌷🙏

🙏🌷🙏🌷🙏🌷🙏

God ,You know Everything: You know I’m just a regular lady

but

I want you to help my family!!!!!I

Come.

Our past mistakes and wrongdoings 

often prevent us from approaching God freely for help.

 But like David, we can choose to run to God. 


His calamity was too intense

 to miss the moment 

to beseech God’s help. 


We can have the assurance David had that 

God would forgive his wrongs 

and show him the right path.
