20 February 2012


Have you fasted before? Fasting is primarily the act of willingly abstaining from some or all food, drink, or both for a period of time. It’s an important spiritual discipline and devotional practice. The last time I fasted when I was in the Philippines, I opted not to eat meat for certain length of time. Today, while we were in our staff meeting, it just hit me when I heard one teacher is fasting. I have wanted to do it, but I didn’t feel the urgency which I should have in the first place. At first, I questioned, “Is this truly works?”,  I believe it will. I believe God is calling me to fast for a reason. This time, I wholeheartedly embrace the calling with excitement and expectancy mounting in my heart. I abstain from partaking my dear favorites rolls, rice, pasta, chips and chocolates for 40 days. This will be definitely a challenge to face, but my confidence is in God’s help. God knows what’s in my heart.
