What I Learned From My 21 Day Fast

Today I ended my 21 day fast with some friends, some pizza and a wicked good chocolate cake! It was an incredible day @ Freedom Life as we witnessed 13 people make decisions to follow Christ. This year we have seen 22 people commit their lives to follow Jesus and become Christians. That just blows my mind!!! Here is what I learned from my 21 day fast that we did as a church to begin this year.

-10 lbs. lighter makes me feel healthier.
-I connect with God better when I'm not full of food & the distractions of this world.
-I'm more sensitive to & able to hear God when I'm actually trying to.
-I can grow so much deeper in my walk with God if I'm willing to continually make myself uncomfortable.
-Prayer & fasting works exactly like God said that it would.
-I (& our church) have a long way to grow in our Spiritual journey, but we've come a long way in a short period of time.
-I want to fast more than I ever have before.
-Did I mention that 22 people have made decisions to follow Christ already this year? Prayer & fasting works!


I'm more desperate for God to use my life and use our church family than ever before! I encourage you to disrupt your life and go ahead & fast & pray this week! Make a decision to draw close to God & He will draw close to you! (James 4:7-10)

Great devotional, "Exceedingly Abundantly"

Today I read a great devotional from Joel Osteen Ministries that I thought would be an encouragement to you. To often we settle for mediocrity & second best in our lives. Many times I trust God for so little when He really wants to bless me big! I want to challenge you today to remember that God can do more in & through your life than what your currently believing for! Take a step & believe big today! TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever" (Ephesians 3:20-21, NKJ) TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria God wants to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ever ask, think, or imagine. In another place, it says that no person has ever seen, heard, or even imagined the wonderful things that God has in store for those who love the Lord. But notice that it's acco

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
