As a believer and follower of Christ, I observe fasting. This time I am fasting and praying for my upcoming final exams. I need Him desperately and I know I can’t depend on my strength alone. I need His strength.
So I chose to seek the Lord from this day onwards until my exams are over.
What am I fasting on? As a Christian, fasting is not limited to just giving up on food and water. That would mean we have the choice to fast by surrendering and sacrificing the things we love and devote alot of time and energy on. It could be video games, television, eating chocolates.
I chose to fast on the social networks (Facebook & Twitter), and channel my time spent on those networks to the time spent with God. Yes I gotta admit I’ve been guilty of spending way too much time on those sites. Which is totally unnecessary.
I pray through this, I would grow to know Him on a deeper level and love Him even more so, and have a greater faith in Him, especially through trying times like the exam periods.
I would not be updating myself on social networks, but I will blog about how I am doing here. So follow me on WordPress!
And please pray along, as I depend on God, wholeheartedly.
