40 Day Sugar Fast…Day 10

DAY 10 — Wednesday, January 15, 2020

 “And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. ( Matthew 6:16-18)

This chapter is one of my favorites because God is my favorite. His nearness is my favorite. And as I fast (emptying myself of false fillers) He goes nearer, deeper, making Himself more intimately available to my hungry-heart than ever before.

What did you learn today about fasting, praying, and giving?

40 Day Sugar Fast

***********************************************************************************

Knowing He never gave up on me, knowing He wanted a relationship with me is so humbling. Making time with Him each day is a priority I need in my daily life.

This morning’s little read 🙏❤️

New Man

So, as 2019 winds down, I’ve found myself asking 🤔 am I ready to let someone new into my heart? And I realized, I was and am. Though I’ve acclimated to living my life alone, and quite honestly I like it, I miss companionship. So, I decided to check out online, see if anyone catches my eye…..well, someone did. I met with him yesterday, and he stole my heart. From his fluffy gray hair to his whiskers, I’m in love. Meet the new man in my life….His name is Philip 😻

His Journey
Don’t think of him as gone away, his journey’s just begun,
Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting, from the sorrows and the tears,
In a place of warmth and comfort, where there are no days or years.
Think how he must be wishing, that we could know today,
How nothing but our sadness, can really pass away.
And think of him as living, in the hearts of those he touched.
For nothing loved is ever lost, and he was/is loved so much. (author unknown)
