January Fast

My sister-in-law and I, and some friends of ours have decided to fast certain trouble foods this month.
We all see that we have let our flesh overpower us when it comes to certain foods.
We have decided to turn this over to the Lord and fast this month as to allow God to help us overcome these strongholds.
We all want to become closer and stronger in the Lord and stronger in this particular area, rather than weak.
I am going to fast these foods this month:

Burgers (fast food burgers, made at home is fine)
Desserts
Candy (mints and gum excluded)
Sonic Happy Hour (A lot of time I go to Sonic and get a half price drink, and I also usually get an order of tator tots with cheese also)

I am going to work on these this month. I am not doing everything all at once because I know it is too hard to attempt. I have tried before and fail, so I going to do it more slowly this time and hope to actually get it under control this time.
This month will be more about overcoming the flesh, rather than just trying to stop eating junk foods.
For those of you who don't know, I also have another reason for getting my weight under control. We really want to have more chilren and I need to lose some weight first because it is too hard to be pregnant and over- weight.
So, please remember me in your prayers. Thank you very much.

Our church does a fast at the beginning of every year. It's a great time of healing and growing closer to God. We start this Sunday night. It runs through Sunday sundown to the following Sunday after morning service. We do broadcast our meetings so if you want to be encouraged join on line at www.trinitydallas.com there is a live link. What a great way to start out the new year. I hope you can join us online. Blessings

Hi Mommy4. I am just now getting this, so i missed it. I finally got this set up so that i will know when I get a comment. I know it goes to email, but it goes to an old email that is so bogged down with spam, that I can't fin anything. That is a good idea to doa fast at the beginning of the year. Perhaps it woul even be goo to do one the first day of each month. I will think about that.

"The democracy will cease to exist
when you take away from those who are willing to work
and give to those who would not." --Thomas Jefferson
Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
