Why is it in the midst of experiencing You that the devil always shows up? He has been ever present today…and I for one do not even want to allow it. I need You to be present in our lives…constant…and I want him to leave. I am not sure what happened but I do know this…I need You…only You. Today has been a wonderful day- a day of rest which I so needed. But, yet it has been a day of stress also.
…I pray that you are with us constantly, every day, standing by our sides…protecting us from the evil one…fill us with your holy spirit as we walk along the path you lay before us every day of our lives…I love you completely and totally...
1. Against all hope, Abraham believed.
2. He didn't weaken in his faith.
3. He saw beyond the facts and trusted God for the impossible.
4. He didn't waver through unbelief.
5. His faith grew stronger the longer he waited.
6. He brought glory to God.
7. He was fully persuaded God had power to do what He said.

Please continue to reveal your paths to me as I continue in this fast. I feel like part of this journey is learning how to listen to you…to really listen to you. It is so hard for me to stop talking to you …and wait to see what You have to say. Just reveal your path to me…and help me to follow it every day. Remind me of those first few lines of Psalm 119. It is so important! Reveal Yourself to me!

I just ask that I will awaken tomorrow with a cleansed soul- at least the beginning of one. Please allow it to be so open and willing to Your word and Your ways for my life, Lord. All I want is to please you with everything I say and do. Thank you for everything You have allowed me to have in my earthly life and everyone You have given me to love. I pray that I love them, along with all other people You made in your image, with everything I am.
Help me, Dear Father God, to love you, seek you, and depend on You fully and completely for all of the days of my life!

The night before the fast....October 28, 2012 (These are just short excerpts from my journal.)
Tomorrow will be the first day of our family fast, and I am so excited to see how God reveals Himself to me and my family throughout the next 21 days. At this time in our lives, we are asking ourselves many questions. I am ready and willing to do whatever He calls me to do. However, I am so worried that I am getting in His way. My prayer is that He will lead me in His direction for my life without any doubt in my mind. I pray that I will know what He wants from me easily throughout this journey. I want God to move in BIG ways throughout these 21 days. So, I am boldly asking for His ways to be revealed. I pray that God’s will for my servant life at church will be revealed as well. I know that He has given me strengths and talents- and I want for them all to be seen and used while I am here on this earth. I do not want to waste another day without serving my God. Thank you, God, in advance for everything you are about to do for me and my family. You are the beginning, middle, and end- the alpha and the omega, and you are my everything. May I serve you each and every day of my life on earth and someday in Heaven. I love you, Father God!
