But frankly I have been writing a book to be released Easter Sunday ( if all goes as planned) and a free 40 day email devotional for Lent (which I would so love for you to sign up for . There is still time )
A girl only has so many words . (Although my friends may argue I have a great deal of them ) ( I think I may have gone over the parenthesis limit)
In day 2 of the Lent devotional I talked about fasting .
I have never truly had a good grip on this spiritual discipline .
One time I did fast coffee for 40 days ! That was a big big deal friends . But beyond that , I have never been quite sure of right time to fast , right motivations to fast , and right things to fast .
But Jesus did it so I want to .
In particular I want to during this Lent season .
As I prayed God whispered to my heart that fasting is simply emptying something of myself to be filled .
Filled by Him!
This year as I prayed I felt God ask me not to give something up but to take something on for the next 40 days .
To invite Him into an area of my life and ask Him to help me do something different .
I am excited to see what this holds .
Emptied to be filled .
Filled to be emptied .
Coming alive at the cross .
