Daniel Fast Focus: A Life of Faithfulness sprinkle with 'Touch-of-Spirituality'

A Time For EveryThing: "To everything there is a season; and a time to every purpose under the Heaven;...{Eccles 3:1}. Solomon who is the writer on the aforementioned words suggests that much
in the world is changing; and Solomon is trusting in those things because he knows that it is God who keeps the world in order. He {God} is the one who causes all things to happen in their "seasons" and gives everything a "purpose" in life.

And so it is for those of us who are focus and fastened on Daniel's Fast during this New Year of 2016. It's a time of new beginnings; a time for second chances; a time to set new goals; and even
a time to look at possibilities for our own life, and the life of family members; and to begin the journey to walk toward those goals and possibilities.

As we sojourn on this Daniel Fast, Prayer, Meditation, and dig deep within the scriptures of chapter 1 of the book of Daniel. Know that as you draw nearer to God; the Holy Spirit becomes the Paraclete, the number one helper, the comforter, the guide, coach and mentor. This becomes the perfect time to set the heart in the direction to know the Lord more intimately.

You know; as we grow each year with the Daniel Fast our group gets better, more committed and even stronger. We have an awesome team of people that are participating again  this year. I want to take  some time to acknowledge, laud and applaud, some on the team members I consider contributing at an appreciatable and commendable level. Kudos goes to Bettye Deramus, she has shared her personal testimony on how wonderful this experience is; She shares that it is so enriching, so fulfilling, very calming, peaceful, spiritual and effective. She has through her testimony of sharing gotten some real die hard food lovers, to deny their hearty habits of others foods that don't exactly fall in the category of the Daniel Fast to join our team. Namely, her baby sister Marilyn Jackson and some of her key friends. Marylyn, welcome aboard we are so happy your have joined us.

Sandriel Scott, who made an attempt last year to be with us, However, had some challenges that did not allow her to continue. But this year; she is back!, and is providing diligent leadership. Sandriel I appreciate the 'post' you put on your Facebook Page that has; and is; attracting some of your FB family and friends. I've observed many of them responding very favorably. Thanks Appreciate you.

A Big shout out! to Reverend Mitchel L. Johnson J.D. and the entire JCrew Team. I even received an invitation to be part of his Webinar Ministry on the very week we kicked off the Daniel Fast. Great incisive and spiritual Intel. I thoroughly enjoyed be a part, blessings upon you Reverend.

It is my intentions to recognize, acknowledge and give kudos to, at least, 3 people at each 7 day intervals during this 40 day Daniel Fast, Prayer, Meditation and scriptural passage. Therefore, send me intel, and share good insights with me on an on-going basis. Blessings upon all

To God Be The Glory

  1. Day 7 for me. I feel calm and relaxed and really most of the time not even hungry. I am still working out what I can and cannot eat but I try to stay on the safe side. Finding it easy to be patient and waiting to hear from God before making important decisions that affect people's lives. Feeling confident and working on an assignment from God. Tell you more about it later. It involves Pastor Phil and the hip hop church for this week end but busy and involved it is behind the scene providing support.
    Last but not least, I have had to move my ring from my ring finger to my middle finger.
    Peace out!

    1. Hello Sandrel, You've really blessed the entire team that's on this journey.
