Surviving to thriving
We have been in a season that has been unexpected and difficult. In moments like this it can feel like all that life has been shaken. But despite all that has happened the truth is that God is still God and we can find peace in that.
This year during the Daniel fast we are examining what it looks like to move from surviving this season to thriving. Each day we will start with a morning thought from Galatians to start our day and then we will journey through Psalms to help us with our own journey and then look at how Daniel moved too thriving.
How to Fast:
This year we are asking you to consider how to ‘Fast’ in a way that really helps you to TURN DOWN the distractions of life to TUNE IN to God’s voice. In these Covid times a change in your diet may not be advisable.
For this year’s Daniel Fast we are asking you to think about…..
What you need to GIVE UP?
What you need to TAKE UP?
Where you need to JOIN UP?
There are many ways to fast. We would like you to fast in the way that is appropriate for you. Perhaps you would like to join in the Daniel Fast as discussed here daniel-fast.com. An overview of the food and drinks that could be removed as well as foods to eat can be found here and recipe suggestions here.
However, it may be more useful/sensible for you to fast from your favourite past time, a habit such as computer games or TV or one element of your diet such as caffeine, sugar or alcohol. Decide what you are going to do, tell someone else to hold you accountable and shape the fast in a way that helps you to position yourself to hear from God and grow.
Stopping something is only half of what biblical fasting is about. We need to ’take up’ something so that we tune into God’s voice.
Some suggestions include:
This year we would love you more than ever to commit to our community touch points.
