Fasting - Day 8

What's up everyone!
Just finished talking to some of my buddies over at, feel free to check out the forums, there is some awesome discussions going on over there.
Anyways in about and hour from now, I will be completing my 8th day of this 21 day Daniel fast. If you don't know what I am talking about or haven't read my previous posts on my fast, my church (Potter's House Christian Church) has incorporated Pastor Jentenzen Franklin's 21 day Daniel fast. To check out every detail of this fast go to Jentenzen

Today was a normal day. I usually don't get hungry in the morning. The hunger pains start kickin' in at about 1-2pm. At that point I usually eat a fruit with not from concentrate apple of orange juice. That pretty much holds me until my wife saves me for dinner. Today I had some good prayer time with my Lord followed by some scriptures, where I read Zachariah chapter 3 & 4. Pretty good book. I will share some more details in what I read in tomorrow's post.

Here is what I ate for dinner.
Here is a plate of whole wheat organic pasta with home made tomato sauce, plantains and not from concentrate orange juice. Can't wait to add a nice piece of chicken or steak to that!

Service tonight was great. Our youth lead worship. We sang
1. You are good (Israel Houghton) - F
2. My soul longs for you (Misty Edwards) - Bm
3. Majesty - D

The first week of our fast was centered on Repentance and change. This second week our pastor is focusing on entering into the Presence of God. The message was great and we all shared and intimate moment with our Lord.

This was day 8 of 21 days. Everyday for the next 21 days I will be keeping you posted with everything that happens throughout my fasting experience. 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 this new year? If so how is it going? If not I invite you to dedicate and separate yourself for God, it will change the rest of your year.

Until next time
Stay blessed
