3 Days, No Food

Last week my church did a 3 day fast and I decided to join them. I decided to join them by only drinking water for 3 days. Crazy, huh? This is something I had never done before but always thought about doing. The pastor talked about doing water only fast and it intrigued me so I thought, “Let’s do this God!”

The night before the fast I spent with Jesus worshipping, praying, and preparing my heart and mind for what I was about to do.

I have to tell you the ONLY way I was able to make it through all 3 days with only drinking water was JESUS! He really was and is my strength. I would not have been able to do it without him! I am still in awe of how I made it through 3 days without food or juice and I had a lot of energy to make it through each day.

The first afternoon was the hardest. I got home from working an 8 hour day feeling tired and low on energy, but I know what I needed…time with Jesus. I took a little nap and then the time I would spend preparing dinner I spent with Jesus, journaling, listening to worship music. It really filled me up! I went to bed and woke up the next morning feeling great! I had energy and was excited for what God was going to teach me in that day!

The energy only increased the more time I spent with Jesus. It’s a beautiful thing!

I made it through all 3 days and was reminded how much God loves me, cares for me, wants what’s best for me, and is taking care of the details in my life even when I can’t see them. He has blessed me and will continue to bless me because he loves me and I am doing my best to listen and obey him. I am not perfect and there are many times I fail at obedience, but when we do obey God, he will reward us and bless us beyond our imagination.

I came out of the fast on a complete high of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I was full of an overwhelming and overflowing amount of joy and more in love with Jesus!

If you have ever thought about doing a fast or even if you haven’t, I would highly recommend it! You don’t have to do a water only fast. You can fast from social media, something that you enjoy like chocolate, or coffee. Whenever you want those things say a prayer to God instead. Seek his face and ask him for strength. He will give it to you. You will not be disappointed during or after fasting. It is a rewarding experience.

God loves you and all he wants is time with us. Take away some of the distractions in your life and spend time with him.
