I’m halfway done! At first I felt torn being happy about that. I thought I shouldn’t be happy to have this time end. Eating is the way God provided for us to sustain life, though. It’s meant to be the normal way. I was just going too far in that direction and needed a course correction. My course is being corrected and I’m looking forward to getting back to eating in a regular way without letting my taste buds overtake me.
I walked only 1 mile today, but that’s all I attempted and it was on purpose. I did 2 last week and was sorry later. I feel fine now.
From A Hunger for God by John Piper:
“…fasting is an expression of humility – that is, our sense of desperate, utter dependence on God for what we need.”
