Growing up I was the child that gave my mother the most problems. The problem child, the rebellious child, the one that just wouldn’t do right. From fights to boyfriends, to drinking, I am pretty sure I was headed on a different route. Even after I was saved I still had that nature in me. I had a bad temper, didn’t take correction well, and couldn’t stop partying for anything. Until I embarked on a fast.
At 21 years of age, I just knew I was called to this thing called a fast.
I didn’t even know what it was. I woke up three days in a row and this word I would hear. I finally Googled it, and to my surprise, it was a spiritual practice.
Now, after research, I said, “Okay, God”, and embarked on a 21-day water fast. And I made it all the way to day 19 on just water.
That fast broke me, changed me, and revealed so much to me. It was by surprise that it was the beginning of my ministry, and even today, that is when my true walk with God began.
That changed my life, and here’s how.
It took me from a Christian who just kinda talked to God to a woman that became all about God. It made that drunk, party girl into a woman of God. It took that desire to drink and replaced it with a desire to be more like Jesus.
When I look back to that young girl, I am so happy she fasted. That fast led to me walking out of sinful situations, ungodly relationships, broken friendships, past hurt, and so much more!
I know fasting can change your life because it changed mine.
I wouldn’t be who I am today without the Power of Fasting!
If you feel stuck, unsure, or like you’re still fighting the same mountain, think about fasting. It will change your life!
