I thought I would take the time to write up a little bit about my experience with the Daniel Fast. Our church does it together every January and this is my first time attempting it fully. Last year, I fasted coffee, and I thought that was hard! The Daniel Fast diet is extremely restricting- no meat, no dairy, no sugars, no caffeine, only whole wheats, veggies, fruits, brown rice.
Today is New Year's Eve. I'm sure everyone has fantastic plans for the evening, whether it's going out to a fancy party downtown with friends or just staying at home with family to watch the ball drop on TV (which happen to be my plans!) I am also taking a hard look at 2018, all the blessings I received in what I'm deeming the best year of my life so far, and thinking about how I would like 2019 to turn out, what I want to be different, what I want to stay the same, and what I have the ability to change myself.
There are going to be chapters on self care, identity, marriage and dating, family, friends, home, work, hobbies, rest, and more. There is no set date for the release of this book yet, but it will be coming out in 2019.
Tomorrow is the release of my latest non-fiction journal "Intentional: A Daily Christian Planner"!
Inside the journal you'll find 164 days worth of:
- My Daily Godly Plan
- My Day in Review
- Miracles and Prayers Answered Today
What does this verse mean to you" How do you interpret it?
To me, this verse meant you make babies and you try to overtake the earth as your own, but that's not the meaning at all. We're meant to fill the earth, not just to fill it with an abundance of people, but with a community. And the subdue the earth does not mean to abuse it. It means to grow with it, to help it grow, and to take care of it.
He made it our job to develop and build this society. God owns the world, but he has put it under our care to cultivate it. How do you live this out through your work?
