Day 40: Should I eat or continue?

Should I eat or continue? All my friends at IHOP are rejoicing about breaking their 40-fast today. I have lost 25 lbs. during this fast as well as other things in my soul and flesh. But I have been a little distracted during this fast because we have had guest from Poland staying at our house the ENTIRE time. Iwona and I have been cooking meals for them, driving them around, spending a lot of late nights talking with them. I really enjoy them, but during an extended fast you really start to draw inwardly and want to spend more time alone and read a lot more. I was not afforded that luxury this time.

Today, I took some Poles to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch after taking them shopping. The salad and soup looked so good, I decided to have a salad and soup.

It did not satisfy me. I am hungry and thirsty for more of God. I decided to “Press Delete” on that meal and continue with my fast. How long will I go? I don’t know right now. Maybe until I get a breakthrough. I yearn to be alone and alone with Him.

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth – for your love is more delightful than wine. Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the young women love You! Take me away with you – let us hurry! Song of Songs 1:1-4

    I’m a girl, 19 and I want to go on a 40 day fast so badly. everyone in the bible that went on this fast had God talking to them or, angels ministering to them (Jesus). I want to do this too. I’m starving for the gift of the holy ghost and i need to be imbued with power. I dont seem to be moving forward but im still striving. how do you know u’re being led to go on a 40day fast?
