Tuesday was difficult, but not horrible. Wednesday was the worst. I was *this close* to being dizzy all day and it's not like my workload decreased because I was fasting. It was the first 5-day work week, so it was crazy busy.
I think my favorite part about fasting this time around is that I was uber-aware of how there was nothing I could do to strengthen myself. I had to fully rely on God. I'm sure if I looked up fasting, I would find out that that's what it's all about, but I don't feel like Googling Bible verses right now, just speaking from the heart.
On the days that I felt the weakest, I prayed short prayers SO often and I couldn't wait to leave work so that I could run home and pray. When have I ever RAN somewhere, just to pray. And I didn't faint, I didn't get sick while I was on the fast (I had the BGs on Friday when I started eating food again, but that's neither here nor there) and I didn't skip a beat at work.
I'm happy that I was able to be obedient to my Pastor - a man that God has called to lead and who I have decided to follow - and I know that my year will be better because of it.
How'd your January fast go?
