Normally, I keep fasting rituals to myself since it is a covenant to God but this fast is different. The church I have been attending announced that it wanted the members to pray for a revival in the community. This moved me because I feel there is an incessant need for Christians to crusade for Christ. Daily, I see the world and its tyrannical demise and am constantly drawn back to the message in my book: Faith is believing without seeing. Even when we think the Almighty has forsaken us, He is busy molding us for his will and purpose. But how many of us can truly say we have faith that does not falter? I am guilty myself of grimacing at the slightest hint of things not going my way in life. If I, one who proclaims to be a Christian, cannot believe then it comes as no surprise that the church is in need of revival to reach out to the lost in our communities. It is Day #5 of the fast and prayer and I can see God’s work and revelations in my life. I don’t know where I’m going, all I know is where I’ve been and that I have extended my hand and asked God to guide me as the Holy Spirit comforts me on this journey.
What I do know is there’s light at the end of the tunnel and writing is here to stay for me. I do know that much.
Until next time, pray without ceasing and smile because someone depends on it.
