Rebooting My Life ~ Day 6



Matthew 6 says, "...when you pray..., ...when you give..., and ...when you fast..."
Isaiah 58 says, "...is this not the fast which I choose..."

Fasting is expected.  Fasting is a choice.  What you fast for is your choice.  How you fast is your choice.

This is day 6 of the fast I chose.  I chose to juice twice a day to get this temple, my body, in shape.  My spirit has been growing tremendously over the last few years and I've allowed it to leave my body behind.  Needless to say, my body has a lot of catching up to do.

The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me very loudly over the last couple of weeks in preparation of my juicing.  While I am eating, He will say, "You're done."  or "Stop now." or "You're full now."  Things like that.  I will admit, I ignored Him a couple of times but I soon learned to listen carefully.  If I didn't listen, I suffered with a tummy that was too full and very uncomfortable.

That's not all He said.  He's been telling me other things as well, but that's not what this post is about.

On Saturday the ladies from church went to a craft show so I didn't have time to juice that day.  I did, however, eat one of my muffins that I made from juice pulp!  Talk about filling!  I ate a healthy dinner and had healthy snacks.

I've also noticed that my stomach must be shrinking.  My mom said that the Granny Smith apples may be causing that.  I guess they may have that effect on the body.  ....GOOD!

Sunday, which would have been day 5, I didn't have time to juice for obvious reasons.  My Sunday isn't like most people's as we have a ministry to concentrate on.  My time on Sundays is focused on practicing the presence of God (because He's always around us, we're just not always aware of it).  I must lead the people into worship and help them realize the presence of God.

I did eat healthy on Sunday for the most part.  I'm very proud of myself... to be honest!

So, here I am at day 6.  I've lost a couple of pounds and probably some inches.  Praise the Lord!  I feel healthier and more energetic.  The mere smell of the juice gives me energy!

I feel like my stomach is shrinking with the result of eating less.  Hallelujah!

My spiritual gift has been confirmed to me twice while I've been on this fast.  God is so good!

I'm hearing from the Holy Spirit often and His voice is very clear.

So, here is my juice from today:



The veggies and fruits that I used are in the pic at the top.  Because of the beet and the cranberries, it turned out very red.  LOVED this one!

My husband and I split the amount of juice that came out and it was a full cup for both of us.  Just imagine my body consuming all of those fruits and veggies in that top pic.  How awesome and concentrated!

1 bag of cranberries
1 beet
4 carrots
1 orange
1 lemon
1 yellow pepper
2 granny smith apples

I added 7 drops of stevia to mine to take away some of the tartness from the lemon.  Mmmmmm....

Did I tell you that God Is Sooo Good!!!!?

God is always around us and He does expect us to take care of our temples, that being our mind and body.

I seem to be on a weight loss venture. Didn't need to. Didn't plan to, but it is happening.

Finances are, ... well only bills. I have been eating differently and drinking less Coke (that makes a huge difference).

I told God one day, Hey you are working on me!

Of course I talk to God out loud. Sometimes someone will be here and smile at me. I always thank God for the little things. He always provides.

Wishing you continued success with your fasting!
