Wow! What a Ride ~Fasting

We have been fasting again and just ended it last night.  We celebrated by going to Red Robin for burgers. I kept it kinda healthy by getting lettuce, tomato, and blue cheese. Wink wink.

Our boys were soooo happy to be out to eat as a family again.  They missed it.  Not only that, but sitting down to dinner as a family and all eating the same meal is something that they always miss during a fast.

I think that is awesome!  21 days of eating in a different way causes our teen boys to miss our table time.  That just goes to prove that kids like routine, and they like dinner at the table as a family.

If you haven't tried fasting, I want to encourage you to do so.  Not only will it cleanse your body of unwanted... crud... that has built up over many, many years, but it will take you on the Spiritual ride of your life!

After all, when you fast, you are in obedience to Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha-Mashiach).  Matthew chapter 6 says, "when you give" "when you pray" and "when you fast."

Here is a sermon series that will help you get on your path to fasting:

He is a GREAT boss!

Who do you work for?  Where are you employed? 

Maybe... you are a stay at home mom / wife.  Maybe... you own a business and are your own boss.  Maybe... you have a boss that is full of himself or has a mean streak.

No matter who you collect your $paycheck$ from or are employed by, if you are a child of God, the Creator of the Universe is your boss! 

You are on mission for Him!  He will tell you what to do, when to do it and how to do it.  Some things He's already told you in Scripture other things He will lead you to and in. 

Just listen... 

1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Colossians 3:23
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

What mission are you on for the LORD?


Teachable Moments

As parents, we need to be able to spot a "teachable moment" when it appears before us.  Since I homeschool and the boyz are hear all day, I am able to take full advantage of these moments.  A moment presented itself to us this morning and I leaped on it!

The subject was racism.

As a mom to boys, a teacher to students, and a Sunday school teacher to students, we have discussed this issue many times over.  This morning (yesterday's show) the 700 Club did a piece on a woman who, before she had accepted Jesus into her life, was very racist against racist people.

I pointed out that the reason why there is racism is because people fail to apply the Bible to their life.  The Bible says, "For God so loved the ______ .... world.... that He gave..."  (John 3:16) It doesn't say that He so loved this race or that race, this color or that color.

As we were discussing this racism issue, Double Espresso (12) noticed that on a cartoon type of game that he plays, one color of people area always mad and the other color is always happy!  I don't know if it was intentional or not, but the makers of the game built racism into the game!

Be on the alert for teachable moments!

Have you had any lately?

Very excited about fasting!

Have you ever done a fast?  Now is the time!  Join thousands and thousands of people and churches all across our country in fasting for 21 days.  Our church has already started but many will be starting on Sunday.

Here is some info to help you get started:

Daniel Fast Verses ~  The Daniel Fast is found in Daniel chapter 10.  Basically, we eat nothing man-made. Only fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, and brown rice for 21 days.

We start the fast by watching the fasting sermons by Pastor Jentezen Franklin and then take communion.  

Here is one sermon:  Jentezen Franklin Fasting Sermon.  The rest are in the sidebar of this video.

In Matthew chapter 6 you will notice that several verses start with "when you give" "when you pray" and then "when you fast."  God expects us to fast.  It is a cleanse for our Spirit and our body.  Fasting draws God's attention and opens us up to His wondrous miracles and blessings. Read about what fasting does in Isaiah chapter 58.  It really is amazing!  Jentezen talks about that chapter as well.

Here is some more info on the Daniel Fast.  
This one looks GREAT!  It has some info in it as well as recipes.  Daniel Fast PDF

Here is a free cookbook ~  It looks like it has some good stuff in it.

If you decide to do this, I have plenty of quick, get-me-by type of food ideas.

I can't wait to hear about the miracles that God is doing in your life!


I've Been MIBA

Hello fellow bloggy friends!  Thought I'd pop in and tell you why I've been Missing In Blogging Action.  Well, to make a long story short, I've been busy in God's action!

I am so excited to tell you that I have a big reveal coming soon.  God has led me into a speaking ministry combined with a business.  I can't wait to show you!  I will reveal it all very soon.

I can tell you this, God is so faithful!  He began a work in me a year ago and it is FINALLY going to happen, or at least launch.  This work began while reading through the book, "Sun Stand Still" by Steven Furtick.  I highly recommend it if you want to move forward, even if you don't know what area you want to move forward in.

God can start something new in you!
