Fasting for control

God has impressed upon my spirit that I need to be in control of my addiction to sweets. I have decided to fast sweets for 21 days. I have realized that this is one area of my life where something controls me. Today I knew that starting tomorrow, no sweets for 21 days. Todays breakfast consisted of 2 pieces of pumpkin pie, as I cooked lunch I had to eat another piece, and before I left for church, yet another piece. I'm out of control..... If I can let sweets control me, what else could potentially slip through the door to be in control. Fasting is self denial. Jesus fasted for 40 days in the wilderness, as our example. Jesus denied himself while walking to the cross for us. Fasting brings you closer to a living Savior who knows and understands what you are going through. Take a moment to reflect on your life. Is there something in your life that has control over you. Only God can help you break bondage when you are not in control. By being in control means, walking with God in a new way, depending on Him for your strength. Join the 21 day challenge to deepen your journey with God.
