When I’ve fasted in the past, God really shows up. In 2008 I started the year off with a fast and I got clearer direction. I fasted at the beginning of 2009 and my life totally turned around. We were in Colorado by the end of the year. I fasted at the beginning of 2010 for clarity and came out feeling refreshed. The biggest part of the fasts weren’t necessarily food, even though that was pretty difficult. My favorite part was being intentional with my time, without being online at all for the time of fasting. In this day and age and with what I do, the internet helps with communicating what I need to say, whether it be through email or social media. I turned it all off for three weeks and came out with a better sense of what the right priorities were.
I recommend a fast for anyone needing direction in life, if that’s what you feel you need to do.
