7 Day Fast: Day 2

Friday

Hey royal family, welcome back!
If you started from day 1 then you'll know all about it, but just in case...

I decided to participate in a 7 day fast.
Under the guidance of
Pastors William and Danielle Murphy of
www.dreamcenteratl.org
 
The rules of the fast are as follows:
  1. Liquids only until 4pm & after 8pm
  2. (1) meal between 4pm and 8pm
  3. Pray the first 8 minutes of your day...(start with praying throughIT)
  4. Meditate on the corporate focus for the day, journal before and after waking up.
  5. NO sweets, pop, sex outside of marriage, no swearing, no smoking, no saying anything negative

On day two my swearing did get a lot better, I was sometimes able to recognize when I would cuss and I acknowledged it so that I'd be careful the next time I opened my mouth.

I also ate a veeeeery small piece of chicken before 4pm. After I prayed for about it, for strength to not do it again and forgiveness for doing it in the first place.

On day 2 I was tried plenty times by the devil, but I can say my praise outweighed his attempts.
I focused on the bigger picture of things that I often blur out, and I can say asking to make worship easier helped me pray to get through my day.
 
 
Corporate focus
Day 2:
Asking the Holy Spirit to make personal devotion and times of worship easier, and more consistent.

I made it through the rest of my day as I said this prayer along with Dream Center of Atlanta on Instagram:

“STOP TRIPPING! You’ve got GOD on your side, and you’re filled with HOLY SPIRIT! The SPIRIT of the LIVING GOD is on you, in you and with you…and this makes you UNBEATABLE! So my PRAYER for you today is that you not grow weary in doing well. I PRAY that you receive the work of the HOLY SPIRIT in your LIFE, and REFUSE to let the challenges of the season wear you down! I DECREE and DECLARE you are STRONG! You are FOCUSED! You are UNBREAKABLE! You are the one that GOD is using to RESTORE CREDIBILITY, and SIGNIFICANCE to your FAMILY. I DECLARE you’re gonna be STRONG! You’re gonna be WISER! You’re gonna be who GOD’s created you to be! You’re gonna be BETTER! You’re gonna be BIGGER! You’re gonna be EVERYTHING you dReamt of being! And you’re “being”, begins TODAY!

In JESUS NAME

Thank you all for following my journey!
Until Next Time
