Fasting Feasts

The Holidays are over and it's time for one of my favorite things... our January 21-Day Daniel Fast. :) It's time to fast the feasts and spare the sumptuous spreads... it's a new year and it's time to prepare with prayer. (Sorry... on a roll there.)

This is The Well's second annual January 21-Day Daniel Fast. It starts today and will end on the 22nd. We eat only fruits and vegetables (and for some, nuts and beans). Kenneth and I also fast TV. Instead of watching our favorite show in the evenings, we take that time to pray and spend extra time with the Most High.

Last year, this fast was INCREDIBLE. Yes, it was hard... but so rewarding and fulfilling that I didn't want it to stop. It focuses your purpose, clears the clutter, and fills you with such creativity and passion. I'm so excited about this year and what God has prepared for us... I can't imagine starting this year any other way than through this fast.

If you haven't ever fasted, you should try it. And I can't think of a better time than at the launch of a new year in your life.
