23 Jan How am I different…
We have one full day left of the 21 day Daniel that fast we have done together as a church. I am so proud of Community Church and how you have stepped up to seek God like never before during this time. Your stories of faith, struggle, excitement and growth have encouraged and impacted so many lives.
As we think about the end of the fast, I want us all to be able to answer a question: How am I different? Fasting doesn’t make God love us more, it gives us the opportunity to get to know Him more and get more aligned with His plan instead of our own.
I went into this fast with some specific prayers and hopes; some have been answered, most have not…yet. I am different though. I am different because my outlook has changed. I was getting too easily frustrated about so many things in life and God has helped me realign my thought process and priorities. I’m sure I will still get frustrated, but I’m also sure I see differently now. God is good, stuff is just stuff, people matter most, and the best REALLY is yet to come!
