I'm hungry! I really want to eat pizza, steak, anything chocolate and ... You get the picture! I don't particularly enjoy every aspect of fasting. In fact, tonight I will probably dream about all of the food that I miss eating. The truth is that fasting is not simply dieting and it is not an optional exercise for Christians that desire to live in victory in every area of their lives.

Fasting is great for your body and even better for your Spirit!
