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.
Rough draft I found today:
I am deeply troubled about my family, God.
We have some gnar-gnar issues.
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
I want you to help my family!!!!!I
