Daniel Fast - Day 3

On this 3rd day of my Daniel Fast, I thought I would get up extra early to bake some flour-less oatmeal muffins.  The recipe seemed delicious when I read it... how can anything go wrong when you blend together oatmeal, bananas, fresh blueberries, and cinnamon?  I'll tell you what can go wrong!  What the recipe didn't mention was that, although it was toasty on the outside, the inside would be MUSH and the flavor was GAG ME!  (that's if 'gag me' had a flavor) I'm not too particular about food texture but this little muffin wanna-be was rejected  by the inner-most part of my body.  My family also tried to eat these little impostors; mostly because it's "Mama's cooking" and they didn't want to offend.  But since this was 'Fail Blog' at its finest they could not continue with their charade. Bananas and granola to the rescue!

On a different note:  My prayer this morning (before I opened my Bible) was to give me the courage that He gave David when he fought Goliath and the wisdom that He gave Solomon.  To know when the 'battle is the Lord's' and when it's my own flesh. I opened my Bible to James 3, where I've been reading, and James 3:13-18 is what the Lord showed me.   It's sorta too long to blog but I'll tell you the last part of it... James 3:17 -18:  But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.  Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.  

Thank You God for being real to me... You are my King! 

If you're fasting at this time I want to encourage you to stay strong.  If you're thinking about doing it; don't delay... It's an amazing experience that is between you and the Lord.
