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)
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.
