    Thanks, and not exactly, we're doing a 21 day fast and I have some stuff going on and just really need some guidance and peace right now so I'm taking the next 60 hours and fasting from everything but liquids.

    I must admit that when I needed it , I would just pick up the Bible at any random page and the blessed verses would find me. HTH

    If you pop 40mg of aderall you can crank out a 60 hr fast in an afternoon.

    I’m kidding, prayers that you find the guidance you need.

    My best advice is just to know that it won't last forever. Drink lots of fluid and prepare to urinate constantly.

    Praying for you (and your family), as you might get a bit grumpy during the fast...

    ...except you...I only kinda love you...
    Ive fasted for 4 days before, nothing but water or diet soda...the first 24/48 hours are the most difficult...it does get easier as your body adjusts to the new situation. Just look to the Word when you feel weak, and avoid situations where food is present. For me it was rough because I have a family and cant just not feed them. But as far as lunch/breakfast/snacks...take a walk, go to the gym, read your bible.

    So it went pretty well, I got some clarity but not what I was expecting.

    You know it's ok to be broken, he used broken people in every book of the bible, none of them were perfect, all were flawed, but they had one thing in common, God.
    I realise that the uncertainty with my wifes unemployment, the stress that we are feeling, and pretty much 2/3 of our life being up in the air, that it's all going to be ok. He has us, it's part of his plan, and as long as I put him first he will lead.

    A mustard seed of faith is a powerful thing.
    Stay in the faith friend.

    If God feeds the birds why wouldn't he take care of us. He does. If we get the flesh out of the way then we can see his plan. Thus the reason for a fast. Put the flesh in it's place.
