ALERT! Daniel Fast 2017, 3rd Week/21 Days/Lifestyle Change

Hello FB Fam & Friends, here we are!-we've arrived at the third week, 21 days. If you're still with us; kudos to you; for your steadfast spiritual stamina and staying power on this awesome, wonderful, life changing journey.

I wanna to keep you in 'front-of-mind-consciousness' regards insights and Intel for the connects between 'Prayer & Fasting".
In the O.T. biblical passages, it tells us that-it appears the process of prayer and fasting is done with a sense of need and dependence,and/or of abject helplessness, in the face of; anticipated calamity. Also in certain instances; as grief, bereavement, mourning, repentance, and/or deep spiritual needs.

The N.T. Biblical exegesis revelation-focuses on the theology of fasting, and is of one's personal priorities. In which, believer's are given the oppty to express themselves in undivided and 'intense devotion to the Lord'. Moreover; to the concerns of one's spiritual proclivities-life to cause and to aspire and to inspire self and others.

This lends itself {which is key} to get closer to God. In doing so; such devotion can be expressed  by abstaining and/or to deny self for short or extended periods of time from certain foods and drinks.

During this short and/or extended time frame-it's very important to know-it shall be a time to enjoy uninterrupted communion and special devotion to God. Which bode well to build stronger faith {confidence} in self and belief in God Unlimited Powers.
Striving; in the act of prayer and fasting must not be considered a burden or a duty. Instead; the focus should be more on a "Celebration" of God's goodness, mercy-and remember, His Grace, Is Sufficient.

ALERT! Daniel Fast, 2017/2nd Week, 14 Days-Lifestyle Change

Yes! we have just passed the second week{14 days} on this awesome life changing spiritual journey. If you're still with us, Congratulations! During the first 7 days I spoke about ''spiritual nutrition'. I have a question for you to consider: What is 'spiritual nutrition, actually? Well while you're in the 'thought searching' process. Let me share this with you.
 A good place to start is-to consider the foods you eat, daily. There is wrong food, and then, of course, there is the 'right foodstuff' {w/good nutrients} we should eat-with the consciousness to stay healthy. The food we consume affect the mind, the body, and the soul {spirit}.

The relationship between the nutrients one eats that assimilates into the body, causes a spiritual awakening and unfolding. According to  Health and Wellness Institutes, there are four aspects and categories of the food people consume: biological, psychological, spiritual and social nutrition.

Biological Nourishment: has elements and ability for optimal food nutrition w/the power to heal and balance physical health.
Psychological Nourishment: These food elements influence mood; emotions; and feelings
Social Nourishment: to dine with others in s pleasant and enjoyment environmental atmosphere has great mental & emotional well-being traits and attributes.
Spiritual Nourishment: When one knows better, they tend to do better and knowledge is power. When one eats with an awareness of the 'mystery of life' or how nutritious foods connects with: mindfulness; appreciation; it provide a kinder, gentler; and loving consciousness that may serve to enhance youthfulness and healthiness. The next Alert shall delve into 'Key concepts regards, motions, moods, of human millennia...END

ALERT! Daniel Fast 2017/first 7 days-Lifestyle Change

Hello to all of You who are with us on this life changing journey within the process of the 40 Days of Fasting, Scriptures, Meditation and Prayer.

This pass Sat marked the first 7 days, and  If you are still steadfast and faithful on the journey congrats!. I wanna take a moment to  reiterate the importance for the reason and goal of meditation and prayer.

  • To be in close proximity w/God
  • To live in 'right relationship' with him
  • To be, 'one with him'
  • To "Practice His Presence" at all times
  • To Make God your 'front-of-mind-consciousness'
In doing so, He shall cause prayer to help you experience his presence. Without a doubt; his purpose, his plans, his provisions and his hedge-of-protection. Focus for a minute on Psalms 23, The Lord Is My Shepherd... if you embrace it-there shall be no lack....

In the midst of the focus, the concentration, and 'practicing his presence'
he will help you to understand how to conform your lives to be the proper fit to his 'Will and Ways'.

This shall serve to help one to comprehend how to: advance his kingdom; his sovereignty, his power, and all else he intends and meant for you to become. All to his glory!

A word about Spiritual Nutrition: It's inherent in the 40 day lifestyle Change of fasting, meditating, reading scriptures and daily devotion for one's prayer life. It simply feeds the body; and provide nourishing for the spirit.
For millions of people in the country, nation, and the world. Food has become a source of idle nourishment. It has become an area of conflict and confusion. We witness endless weight loss dramas, eating dis-orders, cravings addictions, body image obsessions, and never ending search for the best nutrition. Well,you need look no further. Why? Cause when you read Daniel chapter 1: all the evidence is available and the manifestations are both tried and proven. Daniel and the three Hebrew boys are living proof. As the scriptures unfold even the King had reason to change his mind and recant his original approach for a healthy eating process.
LET'S GO FORTH to the next goal which will be '14 days' See you then
