Not About Me
7: Day 2 Today my thoughts are about wanting to make sure this journey/experiment is about God and not for myself. As you all know a lot of what consumes me is health, fitness and weight loss. And with the first topic being about food I want to make sure this is not just another diet. This is a FAST... reducing food to give God more room to move in my life. Have you done a fast before? Do you have any advice, suggestions or personal experiences you'd like to share with me? I want to rely on Him for my needs and desires. I want Him to get all the glory. And honestly yes I do want to shed some pounds this month, but I don't want it to be about that. Because its not. So I was thinking abut doing a reading plan along side the 7 project. Maybe I should read the whole Bible. Or do a topical study along side each one of these topics? ... I want to work on my prayer life and communication with God. I want to learn to listen and hear Him speak in my life. I want to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The way to draw closer to Him is to seek Him. Bible & Prayer seem like a good way to go.
