The last couple of weeks have been rough for me so I decided to start a fast. Since Sunday night I've been fasting. Not only am I expecting my spirit to be empowered, but I want to know God in a deeper way through this. During this time I'm yielding two things that I really enjoy: food and weightlifting. I want to show God that I'm yielding all areas of my life to Him, not just a few that I don't mind giving up. It's nice to spend time with the Lord during the times I would normally be eating or lifting.
