If you have hung out with me here for any amount of time you know I am a huge advocate of all types of fasts: Spiritual, Nutritional, Absolute, Intermitent….etc.
For me it does not matter what type of fast I go into it is always taken into prayer…..and sometimes it is actually given to me through prayer and then me re-taking it into prayer so I can hear clearly what I am supposed to be doing.
But one of the biggies I usually do with a fast is I usually do not share with many people; usually only 1 or 2 are brought into it. And that is because it was spoken into me shortly after my huge transformation with fasting in the beginning. God pressed it into my heart that all fasts forward were to remain private unless told otherwise.
Well here I am years later Him telling me loud and clear…..this one is too big for you….you need to be united with others….lots of others.
Because there is a HUGE DISCONNECT with who we are as people and in our healing.
There are sooo many hurting people turning to sooo many different types of addictions (drugs, alcohol, pornography, food, shopping, apathy, body…etc). And why? To avoid the work of healing. And why? Because healing is hard work!
Healing means you have to be willing to go THROUGH the pain….not around it.
Healing means you have to open your eyes to and bring to the front what you have been avoiding.
So on September 2-October 12, I will be entering into a fast that is intentional in praying for people who are struggling with addictions.
I think we probably ALL know someone who is burdened by addiction. Who has been enslaved by the lies of its soothing denial of the truth.
I can’t do this alone.
So regardless if you enter into a fast or just add extra prayers during those 40 days….are you open to add the intentional prayers for those struggling with addictions?
When we CONNECT our prayers and spirits together we truly CAN move mountains!
Have an amazingly blessed day and labor day weekend!
My hugs and prayers are always with each and every one of you!
