I wanted to share my recent experience on my spiritual fast that I did. Things in my business were just not working. Things at my part time job were not ideal either. I was in a rut. So I had been listening to someone talk about their spiritual fast.
I decided I needed the Lord to either blow a door open or slam it shut! So I decided for two weeks I was not going to play games on my phone. Now mind you, I only played in the morning with my cup of coffee and at night right before bed. But I was addicted to that! It was my peace time. So sounds like not a huge deal but it was and for awhile I felt depressed. What was I going to replace that time with?
So I started reading my Bible app and reading materials to help me exceed in my business. After the two weeks were up I found myself not even playing my games that much anymore. The urge was gone. Chains broken! I also made two sales in one week AND was told I could drop hours at my part time job, which will give me more time for my business and Gods work!
I can’t BELIEVE what God did to me in those two weeks. He is so good. Everything seems clear now. It was truly amazing.
“Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant the Ten Commandments ” Exodus 34:28
Over the weekend I had the privilege to visit the Ark Encounter in Kentucky. It was absolutely amazing. Just to see how massive it was, just makes you think.
What do you think it would have be like to be Noah and his family? Or how about building it!? They said it took Noah 75 years to build. That’s insane. The whole time just thinking to yourself that this is what God is calling you to do. Amazing. Never lose Faith!
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
I absolutely love bringing color to scripture. Joy is a Fruit of the Spirit.
“Consider it pure JOY my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance ” James 1:2-3
I recently am having trials at my job. I’m working very hard at being happy in my unfortunate and not well circumstances. But with God by my side, I am learning joy and contentment for where I am at. Gods timing, not mine.
