God’s been leading me to fast from something and I’ve been fighting Him. Do you want to know what it is? Brace yourself. He wants me to fast from my blog. Gasp! Air! Air! I need air!
I think it might be for a week, but I haven’t exactly sat down to get a clear answer on this because I’m kind of inwardly throwing a temper tantrum. It may only be for a few days. I’m telling myself this to make me feel better. 😉 He might want me to step back from social media for part of the week, too. I don’t exactly know yet, because like I said, I wasn’t rushing to the throne room concerning this.
Not my blog, God!
And my friends, too?
No. No. No. No. No.
Now that I think about it, I’ve been dodging God on this subject for the last few days. He knows best. He has His reasons. He will not forsake me. He will not forsake my blog. I’m telling myself that, too, to make me feel better.
I’ve been a bit worried about my blog, you see. What if someone is offended that I didn’t post anything for a whole week and unsubscribes in a fit of rage?
Perhaps you will leave me a comment saying you will never leave or forsake me, too. To make me feel better, dear friend?
He has never led me to fast my blog before, but I have to obey Him. I am looking forward to sitting at His feet.
Recently I was meditating on the first few verses of Psalm 23. Over and over the phrases stayed with me.
The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul. Psalm 23:1-3a NKJV
The phrases stayed with me and I knew it was for a special reason, but I didn’t know why yet. I know why now. They are the theme verses during this fast. He’s going to restore my soul. He’s going to restore my soul in some areas, because I’m going to come to His green pastures and still waters.
I won’t forget you; I’ll still be praying for you as I do every day.
Will you pray for me, too?
