During my little fast I have found two types of people. The first is supportive. They encourage me and tell me they are proud and some even have started a fast of their own. One of my teens has given up Myspace! Thats huge! These people I find easy to be around. They are helping me more than they know.
The other type is a different story. They are almost discouraging. They at like they are my Fast Police and are trying to catch me or accuse me of breaking my fast. I found myself actually getting upset. I am sure that it is out of humor that they act and I am sure that in other situations, I may do the same thing. So I give them permission to blog about me when I do it to them. But know this, it is not an encouragement. I am sorry if and when I do this to others (and I am sure I do it). So if and when I fall, don't take joy in it but help me back up and dust me off. I will try to do the same for you.
Now for those who think I am doing good, please don’t! I have sepnt way more time on a God fast than I ever have fasting FOR God. I don’t think my measly 40 days will even make a dent in my neglect for my creator and savior. I claim He is the most important thing in my life but way to often I find myself worshipping ME, Serving ME and building Me up. God said he is the “I AM” but I like to try to be the i am way too often.
