The Sweetest Thing

5192741My senior year in college I dated my best friend of over three years.  It wasn’t a normal dating relationship since he was in Thailand and I was in Colorado. Talk about long distance!

I was going through something and really needed clarity so I decided to pray and fast for ten days from food.

I ate one meal a day for ten days.  I normally eat a lot and I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it.  I asked my boyfriend to pray for me, but he took it a step further.

He emailed me telling me that he was praying and fasting with me… all to encourage me in my time with God.  At the times when my fast seemed too hard to continue, I thought of him in Thailand, fasting with me, and it strengthened me enough to finish my fast.  I was so blessed by that.

That is what it is supposed to look like when a man and woman come together to glorify God; both are strengthened and encouraged as a result of the individuals’ pursuit of God.

    Isnt that wonderful? Yep, certain things are accomplished only by prayer and fasting as the Lord Jesus put it in Matthew 17:21…
