Today at the office, Bethany and Jesse asked if I was dieting or something. I told them about the fast and they asked the dreaded "why" question. I told them that I had “no good reason other than God told me” to fast. Which is true. I can't imagine a good reason to do this other than obedience.
I'm so tired... just making these notes of the fast seems like a monumental task.
I’m starting to wonder if anything of any real significance will come out of this time (i.e. a change, something different, God speaking more than he would speak on an ordinary day of interaction…). We’re running out of days. Tomorrow will be THREE FOURTHS of the way through. Crazy.
You had me thinking all night with this one. And what has come to mind is this: Is it a "law" obedience or a "love" obedience. To be clear, I'm not trying to judge or make assumptions about you here at all. I would assume it's a love obedience. In other words, you are doing what God told you to out of love. Which, to me, is vastly "significant" on many levels.ReplyDelete
