Prayer and fasting is a sign of our desire and hunger to seek God. The above image is a great example of a prayer and affirmation to include during a time when you desire to humble yourself before God when seeking a healing for your soul. The purpose of Christian fasting should be to take our eyes off the things of this world that we know we are struggling with and focus our thoughts on God.
Fasting should always be limited to a set time because not eating for extended periods can be damaging to the body, if you are not adding any healthy fat or lean protein to provide your body some energy. Fasting is not a method of punishing our bodies and it is not be used as a way to change your outward appearance, but fasting and prayer is wonderful when approached as a way to detox the body and cleanse your soul.
In Romans 15: 13 We read, May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
"Hope"to Stop Sugar Cravings -
So many of us are suffering from pain. There are so many types of circumstances that we have walked through in life that is causing us to suffer right now. Physical pain is one of them. Perhaps we have suffered a major accident and lost a limb or perhaps we have been having some kind of joint pain, head aches, or maybe we have a child or parent that is sick and we are suffering with them. Instead of turning to sugar and junk food when we are under stress, what can we do different to get us through these very difficult times? Prayer is always the answer.
For myself I have suffered the pains of abuse, rejection, physical pain, and grieving the loss of parents and a brother and some of my dearest and closest friends. These are pains that we suffer from things of the past. Often we need to purposely put aside a few hours a few times a week or a month to just let our Lord and God cleanse us and remove toxic thinking patterns that are the root cause of our poor choices and habits.
I need to pray for acceptance, courage and trust, In fact, this is EVERYDAY of my life. I NEED HOPE. I need to believe that i can get better and that hardships can turn around and teach me something about life. Otherwise, I get very discouraged and sad. The beauty is God is always there and we can interrupt the work of the devil who wants nothing more then to keep us locked in negativity.
I have no hope in myself or the things in my life. I am nothing without hope. God makes a way when I put our hope in Him. It is in the waiting and watching that I have hope. It is when I take my eyes off of myself and my troubles that I can trust in the Power of God to make a way that I never knew possible.
My Dear God In Heaven, please restore a right spirit within me. May your joy in life be in the constant flourishing of hope, because I know you want what is best for me. Thank you God that your love is truly my hope for restoration of my physical, mental and spiritual strength. Give me One drop of hope to fill my day with the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you Lord Jesus.
The only path to life and freedom is letting go of the toxic thoughts and emotions that can hold you captive. We often don't look at the reality of how toxic sugar (including wheat, grains and processed food is on the body. So if you are feeling stuck and want to try a new experience than let me suggest a total spiritual cleanse. I offer many free resources to help you jump start self-knowledge as well as paid programs. I suggest to couple my teachings (or coaching) with a healthy fasting program with easy options to detox the blood sugar.
