At the end of March, I embarked on a 3 Day Water Fast for my ministry. I believed God was leading me to it and I submitted. I had my list of needs, and expectations, I cleared off my schedule (thanks to the quarantine season) and I was ready to embark on a new fast.
I take fasting very serious and it takes a lot to do a water fast. So, this 3 day fast quickly turned into a 6 day fast because I would almost get through the entire day and then I'd fail.
I realized during this fast, that I wasn't just fasting for my ministry I was fasting for myself. I saw the emotional tie I had to eat. I would overindulge, eat out, and eat unhealthy food all week long. Candy bars, brownies, and cheesy bread were my weekly entrees (crazy right). I saw the triggers that caused me to overeat. I realized that I wasn't eating for nutrients or even because I was very hungry, I was eating due to loneliness, boredom, and stress. I realized that God didn't want me to only take care of my personal walk and ministry life, but to stop and take care of my health!
He revealed to me I needed to work on getting a healthier body for my future goals and aspirations.
By the end of this fast God introduced to me "His Daughter's Kitchen". An area where I encourage women through Food & Faith. I was excited about this idea, but afraid because I didn't know where to start.
He quickly revealed for me to just cook at home and try and He will do the rest. At this time as I write this blog, it's been 29 days since I embarked on this journey and I'm down 13 pounds. I feel lighter and brighter. I have seen a major shift in my mood and the way I do life.
I want His Daughter's Kitchen to get you in the cooking mood to change your life one meal at a time.
