day 6 ~ WE WIN!!!

Genesis 1:24-25 

DAY SIX   God said, “I command the earth to give life to all kinds of tame animals, wild animals, and reptiles.” And that’s what happened. God made every one of them. Then he looked at what he had done, and it was good.

The tame animals and wild animals came on day five in my life.  They were camped out in my family room to watch the college football national championship tonight.  Just in case you missed it…. my team won 🙂

GEAUX TIGERS!!!

why fast?

Today I have found myself struggling with the fast.  I woke up excited about the idea of getting creative with Daniel fast-friendly football food and then realized that I had to drive my oldest to a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for her high-school crew club.  With no time to dig into the Bible or drop to my knees, I suddenly had two dozen circles of sin sitting on my kitchen counter.  How nicely they would go with a hot cup of coffee….
In a desperate attempt to avoid cooking up some bacon and eggs and making myself a feast, I went to my room and began looking for fasting encouragement.  I’ve read a ton today, but the devotion at the following link gave me the most motivation.

Nice to know that I’m not the only sinner around with “hell in my heart”.
