Today marks the end of the first week of my water fast! It’s pretty amazing how fast it just went by. This break from food has allowed me to think about my relationship with food and what to do about it. For sure, the fast has changed my perception on how much one actually needs food to survive. For the next fourteen days I will be on the Daniel Fast, no meats, no sweets and one meal a day.
Overall, I’ve become more conscious. This fast has definitely made me more grounded and calmer. I have learned several things during this fast. But the one thing that really stands out for me is my relationship with others. During the fast I decided to keep all appointment meetings with people. As I sat and listened each day ( morning, noon and evening), I have learned that listening is an art and sometimes people are just wanting us to listen.
Thank you God for showing me to be more patient and understanding with people.
Phil. 4:7-“And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
