BREAKING MY FAST – BREAKFAST???

I’m ending my fast!

I wrote this post two days ago. I had decided I was ending my social media fast today but as it got closer to today I was no longer sure anymore. Was I ended the fast because God had told me to? Was I ending it because I missed social media? I wasn’t sure anymore. But this morning I prayed about it and I felt complete peace about this decision because the objectives of my fast have been met – or at least are beginning to be met. 


Since the 15th of May, I have been off social media in a bid to grow spiritually, emotionally and mentally.  You can find out more about why I went on the fast in the first place here but in essence, I wanted to see growth.

Exponential growth.

I was tired of seeing subtle growth in my personality and in my outlook on life. So I decided to block a few distractions and see what would happen. It was kind of a social experiment, with me as the guinea pig and God controlling all the factors. Guys, He really came through. He always does to be honest.

I’ve learned a few things about myself – in conjunction with this – that I realised have in the past hindered a deeper relationship with both God and people. I’m ready to move past that.

I have seen glimpses of my purpose and vision in life. And I say glimpses, because it’s still really hazy. But then again, who doesn’t love surprises? (Joke – I hate surprises. Pray 4 me)

I am entering a new season (coinciding with summerrrrr too!) and I both terrified and excited –  texcited if you will 😉

All in all, I have a fresh new perspective. It is time for me to be a real adult and live my life.  God’s got me, so I’m good.

 

Peace&Love.
