I found out today that Vanessa fasted along with me last Thursday! That means she actually reads my newsletter! I didn't think anybody really did.
She said she only made it till noon. Like most of us, she gets hungry when she doesn't eat. Imagine that! More importantly, though, she made time to pray for me and the rest of the Team. That's pretty awesome.
I told her about my fasting plan last Thursday. I was starving (literally) by about 4 pm, so I decided that I'd stay up until midnight and eat a sandwich. That was my whole goal: make it to midnight, eat PB&J. I made it to midnight, but then it occurred to me that normal people would just go to bed and eat in the morning. Now, typically, I don't pay too much attention to what normal people would do, but, in this case, I did just that. I even thought about adding another day of fasting on Friday, but I'm pretty sure God wanted me to eat Chipotle instead...
Anyway, today I got an e-mail from one of the Team. She thinks it would be a good idea to set aside every Thursday for prayer and fasting. I wholeheartedly agree with that. I think we need to be more purposeful in our fight for IQ.
