Midnight tonight will mark my completion of a fast that I began to rebuild my relationship with God in addition to gaining refocus and direction in 2012. Twenty-one days ago, I pledged to myself and God that I would maintain a complete-plant based diet as Daniel did.
“In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.” Daniel 10:2, 3
The fast has proved to be a feat, as my friends enjoyed luscious meals and fabulous drinks I abstained, drinking only water and 100% juice and eating only fruits and vegetables. I relied heavily on my inner strength and the power of prayer to get me through my weakest moments. I recommend that anyone looking to realize how strong they truly are to look at the Daniel Fast. Completion of this fast has reminded me that when I set my mind to something that I am capable of anything. I am grateful for my friend Michaela for advising me of this fast and staying strong with me, even 3000 miles away.
