What does fasting mean to you? For me it is a chance to get closer to God. Get closer to God by spending quality time in his presence by eliminating daily distractions. Daily distractions such as social media, television and social activities not pertaining to God.
Fasting also allow me the opportunity to challenge my body. challenge my body thru the elimination of certain comfort foods. The Bible speaks about how God rewards sacrifice. Romans 12:1-21 specifically talks about how you should present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Fasting allows us to get back to "holy and acceptable" place within God.
Today marks day 15 of my 21 day fast. I am almost at the finish line. Continue to keep me in your prayers as I do the same for you.
