Fasting - Day 9

Hey everyone!
Hope you are enjoying your week so far. Yesterday I completed my 9th 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 click here. 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

Yesterday was a normal rainy day for me. I spend a good portion of the day reading. I started reading some of the bible, Zachariah 5 & 6. The book is a little confusing if you don't really focus on what you are reading. But I started reading this book because there is a certain scripture that I am looking for in this book, so I just decided to read the entire thing. I also have been reading a book titled "Fasting: Opening the door to a deeper, more intimate, more powerful relationship with God" by Jentezen Franklin. It is an appropriate book for the fast that I am doing. I will be featuring this book in my reader's digest section, so check it out soon.

Here was my dinner.
Another great dinner! Home made mashed potatoes (made potatoes mashed), with a boca meatless patty, home made tomato sauce, naturally made organic blue corn chips and not from concentrate orange juice. UM UM GOOD! Hey this is as good as it gets in this fasting!

Service last night was so so powerful. Our pastor was hardly able to preach. Worship really took over this entire service. And it is funny because Pastor's message was on worship. As we finished up our service some of us stayed to worship a little more and that was so powerful. God's presence really came over me, it was so beautiful. I felt the Holy Spirit regenerate/refresh me with His presence. I felt my cup overflowing with Him. It was an amazing experience.

This was day 9 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
