21 Day Daniel Fast - Day 1

What's up everyone! Today is the beginning of my 21 day Daniel fast. Woohoo! I am excited now but wait till day 12, then I might not be as excited, lol!
Anyways last night our entire congregation dedicated themselves to the Lord to begin this fast. That service was awesome. It was similar to our New Year's Service that I posted up a couple of days ago. We have incorporated Pastor Jentenzen Franklin's fasting to our church. To check out every detail of this fast check out Jentenzen I love what he says in his opening paragraph,
"Corporately fasting in January is much the same precept as praying in the morning to establish the will of God for the entire day. I believe that, if we will pray and seek God and give Him our best at the first of the year, He will bless our ENTIRE year! "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you" (Matthew 6:33). "

For being the first day of the fast, it has been great. They say the first 3-4 days are the hardest in this fast, so I think I am doing alright. I really didn't each much this whole day other than dinner. Were we had home made mashed potatoes, with organic/natural boca chicken patty, with home made tomato sauce, salad (no dressing) and not from concentrate apple juice.

This is some of the food, the rest was in my stomach.

Everyday for the next 21 days I will be keeping you posted with everything that happens. You can also check out Potter's House Christian Church and download free podcast daily of every service in our 21 day fast. So stay plugged in everyday.

So are you or your church fasting in this new year? If so how is it going? If not I invite you to dedicate and seperate yourself for God it will change the rest of your year.

Until next time
Stay blessed.
