Breaking Strongholds

3 Feb

“Caterpillars to Butterflies” by Evelyn Diment

Satan's Strongholds
I learned “Caterpillars to Butterflies” by Evelyn Diment was a book to help those who suffer from past hurts, bondages and addictions. I knew the Holy Spirit lead me to find this little book and helped me to understand how we are fighting a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
When one is set free from bondage, filled with the word of God and Holy Spirit, it is easy to overcome temptations.
I pray sharing this will help others to overcome Satan’s strongholds.

Step 1: Pray this…

“Holy Spirit, please take over as counselor at this time and within these prayers. I am fully submitted to you.”

Step 2: Cleanse yourself before Jesus and repent. Meditate on 1st John 1:9.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Ask the Holy Spirit for understanding. Repeat this verse over and over until you have a clear understanding.

Step 3: Bind  Satan.

Matthew 16:18 and 19
(18) And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
(19) I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Matthew 18:18
“I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Pray this…

“In the name of Jesus, who has given me authority to use His name, I bind Satan and the principalities and powers of darkness. I bind and cast down spiritual wickedness in heavenly places and render them harmless and ineffective against me and anyone I minister to today. I break the power of all assignments against us, making them null and void. I take authority over all evil spirits and render them deaf, dumb, blind and unable to manifest in any form or manipulate the person they are in. I paralyze them forbidding them to speak or tear the person; neither will they transfer onto me or anyone else. I command them to go directly to dark dry places and stay there in the name of Jesus. I command them to come out quietly in the form of yawns or breathing out.”

“I now ask you, Holy Spirit, to whom I am submitted, to take over as counselor, healer and deliverer, laying aside my flesh and any preconceived ideas, in Jesus Name.”

Always do steps 1, 2, and 3 before praying any prayers on this blog, especially if praying for others.

 Step 4: Forgiveness.

“Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.” Mark 11:25-26

 Pray the Lord’s Prayer forgiving those who trespass against you, so you may walk in the right standings with God.

“Our Father who is in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name.

‘Your kingdom come.

Your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

‘Give us this day our daily bread.

‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Matthew 6:9-13

Read this prayer out loud:

“Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in Jesus’ Name, asking you to forgive me for holding grudges. I am sorry for the way I have acted and I rededicate my life to you today, Lord Jesus.

I ask you to come into my heart afresh today. Please forgive me for not living for you as I should have. I receive you afresh as my Savior, Healer, and Deliverer. I crown you king and Lord over every part of my life. I will live for You to the best of my ability from now on. Thank You for Your love and mercy. I renounce Satan and his demons; they no longer have a hold on me. I am under the blood of Jesus— MY LORD AND SAVIOR.

Today I choose to release the people on this list, not because I “feel” forgiveness or because they are right, but because I choose to be obedient to you, Father. I realize your ways are higher than my ways, and today I release them from my hurt, my disappointment, my resentment, my anger, my hate, my unforgiveness, and my bitterness, especially my parents and family, or anyone that I have made bitter-root judgements against. I release them from my judgement and plow up the ground where the bad seeds were sown, turn under those bitter roots, and plants new seeds of love, acceptance and forgiveness

I thank You that I can bind Satan and break the hold he had on me in regard to this matter and break his power over my life. I make null and void all things I’ve reaped from the past. I as i bind him according to Matthew 18:18, I know what I bind on earth is bound in heaven, and I command him to leave, in the Mighty Name of Jesus! Do not return. and now I loose the spirit of agape love and the compassion of Jesus as Spirit of Truth in my life to set me FREE!!!

Thank you, Lord. I will no longer reap from those bitter roots that I sowed. Please have those I have hurt release me also, Lord. I however, if you have anyone you specifically want me to contact, I will do it. Just bring them to my remembrance when I leave here today and I will either call, writer, or go see them. Tear up the paper and put it in the wastebasket. Cup your hands in front of you and say to the Lord:

Lord Jesus, here are the people I have hurt and the ones who have hurt me.I release them to you. I pray for those who have despitefully used me. I pray for my enemies as you have commanded and ask You to bless them and save them in Your precious Name. You say to cast my cares upon You because You care for me. Thank You, Lord. These people are no longer my problem; they are Yours! (Throw up hands to God and let them go!) Thank You, Lord for setting me free. Please heal me of my hurts in regard to these people. Please change my heart about them as only you can do!

Father God, I now release You of the things I have held against You. I’ve been wrong and I’m sorry. I know you are a loving, caring Father, and I am grateful for Your forgiveness. Because You have forgiven and released me. I can and do forgive myself! Hallelujah!”

Step 5: Rebuking evil and Healing prayers.

Prayer for Spiritual Housecleaning:

“Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in Jesus’ name, recognizing you as my Lord, Savior, Healer, and Deliverer. You know all my problems—all the things that bind, torment, defile and harass me. Today I refuse to accept anything more from Satan, and I loose myself from every dark spirit, from every evil influence, from every satanic bondage, and from every spirit in me that is not the Spirit of God. I bind all these spirits up according to Matthew 18:18 where it says that whatever I bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever I loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

I ask you, Father, to forgive me for allowing these spirits to manifest in my life and to use my body for their home. I purpose in my heart to serve you from now on.

Satan, I rebuke you and all your evil spirits. I renounce any occult activities I’ve been involved in and renounce these strongmen and curse their fruit in me as Jesus did the fig tree. Right now I bind up and command these strongmen and their fruit to go directly to dark, dry places and stay there in Jesus’ Name. Jesus has given me authority to use His name, which is above all names.

  • I now command the spirit of divination
  • Familiar spirits
  • Spirit of jealousy, anger, and unforgiveness
  • Lying spirit, guilt, self-condemnation
  • Perverse and unclean spirits – pornography and lust, homosexuality, fornication, and adultery
  • Spirit of homosexuality, gay, and lesbian lifestyle
  • Spirit of haughtiness (pride)
  • Spirit of heaviness, depression, and oppression
  • Spirit of whoredoms – gluttony
  • Spirit of infirmity, sickness, and disease
  • Dumb and deaf spirit
  • Spirit of bondage (especially addiction to drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes)
  • Spirit of witchcraft and rebellion
  • Spirit of lethargy
  • Controlling spirits, judgmental critical spirits
  • Spirit of fear, anxiety, tormenting driving spirits
  • Seducing spirits
  • Spirit of antichrist
  • Spirit of error
  • Spirit of confusion
  • Spirit of death (self-destruction) and all their fruit to GO.”

Take a deep breath and say, GO…GO…GO!

 Prayer for Healing:

 “In Jesus’ name, I now call these spirits to come in and fill me to overflowing with God and His love. I loose upon myself the Holy Spirit and all His gifts:

  • The Love of God
  • The spirit of Truth to set me free
  • Power, love, and a sound mind
  • A good and excellent spirit
  • The spirit of purity
  • A humble and contrite spirit
  • The spirit of holiness
  • the joy of the Lord
  • the garment of praise
  • The oil of gladness
  • The comforter
  • The gifts of healing and miracles, for by His stripes i am healed
  • The spirit of adoption
  • God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding
  • The Spirit of life, for no weapon formed against me will prosper

What I have loosed on earth is loosed in heaven, and I call my body into chemical balance. Thank You, Lord. *(There will be now withdrawals or D.T’s; it will be as if I never drank or used.) I speak to my thyroid and command it to function properly. I speak wholeness to my metabolism and my hormone balance. I command my immune system to function properly and my white cells to rise up and defeat and sickness in my body and mind today.

In the Name of Jesus I command the pituitary gland to restructure the signals to my body, and for all the organs and glands and tissues to respond and to restored to the perfect order of God. I thank You, Father, for Your special touch now upon me (or this Brother or Sister, if you are ministering to someone else) this very moment. In Jesus’ name.”

Now repeat the rest of the prayer out loud:

“Thank you, Father, for setting me free. I confess that my body is the temple for the Holy Spirit; I am redeemed, cleansed, sanctified, justified, healed, and delivered by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, Satan, from this day forward you have no place in my and no power over me, through the blood of Jesus.”

Step 6: Armor Up! Prayer for protection:

“Lord Jesus, I am strong in You. I am strong in the power of your might. I put on the full armor of God and stand firm against the schemes of the devil. My struggle is not against flesh and blood. In the name of Jesus, I bind Satan and the rulers, and the powers, and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. I render them harmless and ineffective against me and my loved ones. I resist you, devil, in the name of Jesus, and I stand firm.

I stand firm, having girded my loins with truth- the truth of God that sets me free. I have on the breastplate of righteousness that covers my body, my heart, and vital organs and shows that I am in right standing with my God! My feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, and I take those feet and tread on serpents and scorpions, for I have all power over you, devil! I take the shield of faith and extinguish every fiery arrow of you, devil!
I take the helmet of salvation and cover my head securely, for I have the mind of Christ. The only Spirit I hear is the Spirit of the living God that lives inside me and speaks to me from within. I take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and pierce through your wicked plans, for it is written all I have to do is submit myself to God, and tell you to flee, and you have to go! So Go! In the name of Almighty Jesus.”

Step 7: Praying Blessings over your life:

“I put the blood of Jesus over me, my family, my home, my ministry, my place of employment, my bank account, my debts, my car and possessions– all of which belong to God– and I serve notice that your power is broken, devil, over me and mine, in Jesus name. Thank you, Father. Now I can go teach, preach, or minister to whomever you send my way… Praise Jesus… Glory!”

John 8:32

Prayer For Those in Sutherland Springs,TX

8 Nov

Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church VictimsTexas experienced the worst mass shooting on Nov 5, 2017 in a small christian church located in the small town of Sutherland Springs. There were twenty-six victims and many were children.

Prayer for those in Sutherland Springs, Tx

Prayer
Lord, we pray for all those who have lost friends and loved ones in the Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church. May You wipe away their tears and bring comfort to their broken hearts. Lord, we ask for healing of all those injured in body and spirit. May Your name be glorified by the salt and light these beautiful children of God exemplify.
In Jesus All Mighty name, Amen

Sutherland Springs, Texas

This is the video shared on you-tube the week before the shooting. It is heartbreaking, but it shows the Love in the little church. They started off singing “Happiness is the Lord”.

One Week Later
The little church was turned into a beautiful memorial to honor the victims. It  was repainted and restored, chairs with roses were placed where each victim was found.

Apologist Nabeel Qureshi Found Jesus

19 Sep

 

Christian apologist, Nabeel Qureshi, is resting with the Lord.

Nabeel Qureshi (1983-2017)

Nabeel Qureshi born in America was a devout Pakistani Muslin who shared his testimony in his first book published in 2014 called “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus”. It became a New York Times best-seller and was awarded the Christian Book Award for both “Best New Author” and “Best Non-Fiction Book” of 2015. In March 2016 his second book was published, “Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward” then five months later his third book came out “No God But One: Allah or Jesus? A Former Muslim Investigates the Evidence for Islam and Christianity.”

I would watch and listen to his videos and I was so inspired by his teachings that I even added a few to a blog called
Is Allah and The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob the Same God?

Why Nabeel Qureshi Questioned His Muslim Faith 
http://cbn.com/tv/embedplayer.aspx?bcid=3945528870001

In 2014 tweeted~ “I left Islam because I studied Muhammad’s life. I accepted the Gospel because I studied Jesus’ life.”

Sadly Nabeel passed away September 16, 2017 after a year long battle with stomach cancer at the age of 34. He left behind his lovely wife and precious little daughter. His goal was not to condemn, but to see Muslims come to faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

This was Nabeel’s final video and he urged Christians not to use the truths he taught about Christianity and Islam as weapons. Nabeel said “When we talk to people about our beliefs, we should do it through a lens of love,”. I know he is in the loving hands of Jesus and my prayers are with his little daughter, wife, family and friends. May the Lord continue to use him to touch hearts and share the Lord’s truth.

Send him advisers that will be a reflection of You and fill him with Your spiritual wisdom and discernment to solve our nation’s problems, our social and economic issues, and our foreign affairs. Hold Trump steadfast as he deals with the hostility of other nations that oppose the freedom this country stands for and our Christian liberty. Lord, capture Trump’s heart so that he will fear You more than man, and lead him to make policies that will bring glory to You. Place a hedge of protection over him and his family with Your full armor Ephesians 6~ the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit.

Pray For Our Nation~

2 Nov

With the election only a few days away, fasting and prayer is critical for our nation. Pray for our leaders, those running for office, and the people. Without our Lord there is no hope. On January 30, 1984 Ronald Reagan said “God’s most blessed gift to His family is the gift of life. He sent us the Prince of Peace as a babe in a manger. I’ve said that we must be cautious in claiming God is on our side. I think the real question we must answer is, are we on His side?” In 1983 Reagan wrote ” Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation”, he said we need to join in prayer to bring protection to the unborn. Prayer and action are needed to uphold the sanctity of human life. Reagan alluded to a book written by John Powell called “Abortion: The Silent Holocaust”.

The Full Armor of God

 ~Prayer For Protection~
Ephesians 6:10-20

Spiritual Warfare
Dear Heavenly Father,
I am strong in You and in the strength of Your might. I put on the full armor of You, so that I will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For my struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the Heavenly places. Therefore, I take up the full armor of You, so that I will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. I stand firm therefore, Having Girded My Loins With Truth, and Having Put On The Breastplate Of Righteousness, and Having Shod My Feet With The Preparation Of The Gospel Of Peace, in addition to all, I take up The Shield Of Faith with which I will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And I take The Helmet Of Salvation, and The Sword Of The Spirit, which is Your word. With all prayer and petition, I will pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, I will be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the Saints. Holy Spirit, pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
In Jesus Almighty Name. Amen

 

Red Skelton’s Pledge of Allegiance

12 Aug
Red Skelton’s Pledge of Allegiance

January 14,1969

I have to say the first time watching this made me cry.
Pay close attention to his last line because what he said years ago is now happening and it is very sad.
Red Skelton July 18, 1913 – September 17, 1997

As a kid I grow up watching the Red Skelton Show back in the fifties and sixties. For those who don’t know he was the funniest clown of all time.

Each show concluded with his trademark line: “Good night, and God bless.”
As a schoolboy in Vincennes, Indiana, one of Red Skelton’s teachers explained the words and meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance to his class. Skelton later wrote down, and eventually recorded, his recollection of this lecture. It is followed by an observation of his own.
I – – Me; an individual; a committee of one. Pledge – – Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity.
Allegiance – – My love and my devotion.
To the Flag – – Our standard; Old Glory ; a symbol of Freedom; wherever she waves there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, Freedom is everybody’s job.
United – – That means that we have all come together.
States – – Individual communities that have united into forty-eight great states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that is love for country.
And to the Republic – – Republic–a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

For which it stands

One Nation – – One Nation–meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible – – Incapable of being divided.
With Liberty – – Which is Freedom; the right of power to live one’s own life, without threats, fear, or some sort of retaliation.
And Justice – – The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly with others.
For All – – For All–which means, boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.

And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: Under God.
Wouldn’t it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that would be eliminated from schools, too?

My 40 Day Fast Dec. 26, 2006 – Feb. 3, 2007

28 Jun

 

My 40 Day Fast
Dec. 26, 2006 – Feb. 3, 2007
Christmas Day Dec 25, 2006
I had a rash on the back of my arms as you can see in this picture.
This picture was taken the day after my fast. I lost 33 pounds during the 40 day fast.
This picture was taken Feb. 4, 2007
In the beginning of 2006 the Lord put it in my heart to fast. I was having health issues. My blood pressure was high and the doctor increased my dosage of Norvasc to 10 mg now another drug was being added Enalapril 5 mg. I had stopped taking it because I didn’t like the side effects. I started searching for alternative medicine and cures. In my research I learned about the Master Cleanser. I learned about how we need to eat to have a more alkaline body. Many of us have acidic bodies which fester diseases, the perfect environment for cancer. I went out and bought test strips to test the PH in my body and I found I was very acidic. I would think about fasting but for some reason I was never motivated enough. Then May 6, 2006 Sammy (my daughter’s boyfriend) took his own life and it changed mine. I was hurting and I knew the Lord was the only one who could help me. The Lord led me to make a MySpace site for Sammy and the Holy Spirit took me step by step moving in me like never before. But then after six months of the Holy Spirit directing me I wasn’t feeling his presence as much. I was beginning to feel physically worse. My blood pressure was getting higher. Also, I had a great amount of itching under my skin, my skin was rashy. I started thinking maybe the itching was coming from my liver because when I would eat it would get worse. I believed my liver had too many toxins and it was being overworked and couldn’t handle it all. Then the Holy Spirit laid it on my heart again to fast, but this time he was telling me 40 days. I was reaffirmed on Dec 23, 2006 when my blood pressure reached an all time high of 202/124. I felt like my eyes wanted to pop and my head felt like it was going to burst. Mind you, I had never spiritually fasted before and in church they never taught about fasting, but the Holy Spirit was putting it in my heart. The Lord knew the perfect timing, with over 5000 friends on the MySpace site and knowing how many were hurting from depression, sickness, abuse, losses, financial problems, addictions and etc. I knew he wanted me to do the fast. The Lord had prepared me earlier in the year because he had a purpose that I had no idea was coming. Now fasting was no longer just for me, but for all those on the site plus I had many prayer requests coming in for people with special needs. Now I had the motivation while before I didn’t. I knew I needed to give up TV and the internet in order to focus more on the Lord, so that is what I did.
Fasting is just as important today as it was thousands of years ago. The bible doesn’t say if you fast, it says when you fast Matthew 6:16-17. Many Christians today over look the importance of fasting. I would always quote if you have faith of a mustard seed you can move a mountain, but the very next verse Matthew 17:21 says “However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Now Jesus was talking about casting out demons, but if you have a great need, praying and fasting may be just what the doctor (Jesus) ordered. Before taking on any fast, pray, and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. Never attempt a long fast without the Lord speaking to you and letting you know this is his will for you. Many fast are mentioned in the bible. The bible speaks of fast that lasted one night, one day, three days, seven days, fourteen days, twenty-one days and forty days. There are 23 fasting stories in the Old Testament and 12 in the New Testament. When Jesus fasted in Luke 4:1, the bible says Jesus was filled with the Spirit. Now take a look at Luke 4:14 it says Jesus has been tempted by Satan and has defeated him, something has changed. The bible now says Jesus has the power of the Spirit. So we can see there is a difference between being filled with the Spirit and having the power of the Spirit. Fasting is a way to release God’s power in our own lives. When we fast it is a choice for God and against our flesh. We are making a conscious inward choice demonstrated by an outward act that we want God’s power to flow through us, not our own. It shows God we want his answer and not our own. The Pharisees fasted and wondered why Jesus’ disciples didn’t. Jesus responded “While the bridegroom is with them, the attendants of the bridegroom cannot fast, can they? So long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day” Mark 2:19-20. So you can see fasting was never done away with. It is just as important today as it was for the early Christians. Something else I learned I thought was interesting, did you know even the animals fasted In Jonah 3:5-10? Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything, do not let them eat, or drink water.

Day 1 Tuesday
December 26, 2006
Last night I had a dream of Jesus holding my hands giving me support. It was a silhouette of him kneeling down on one knee. This is first time I have ever had a silhouette dream. I know this is the Lord letting me know not to worry” I will be with you, helping you”…
A Silhouette
I quit drinking coffee Dec. 24, 2006, so I wouldn’t have a bad headache today when I started my fast. I got up around 8:00 AM and fixed the sea salt flush. Drinking a quart isn’t that easy, that is 32 oz. The taste isn’t pleasant, after getting it all down it made my stomach somewhat nauseous, but I must admit it works well. By 4:00 PM I have downed 6 glasses of the lemon cleanser. I am feeling a little hungry. I have rubbed peppermint oil on the sides of my face and the back of my neck which is refreshing. By 10:00 PM I downed 4 more.
Day 2 Wednesday
December 27, 2006
This morning I woke up at 7:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. By 4:00 PM I have drank 5 glasses of the lemon cleanser. I feel a little depressed. I have been praying. I am very hungry and I want food really bad. Lord help me get through this. I know I can’t do this without you. My stomach is rumbling. I had 2 more glasses of the lemon cleanser. I checked my blood pressure. It is 200/103. I drank a smooth move. My thoughts are clouded. I prayed and listened to my audio bible.
Day 3 Thursday
December 28, 2006
I drank a glass of smooth move. Last night I was sweating some. I feel tired and a little depressed. I pray my thoughts of food will fade. I drank 6 glasses of the lemon cleanser. I took a bath in the spa using Epsom salt and ginger. I spent about 20 minutes in the tub. I am drinking another smooth move.
Day 4 Friday
December 29, 2006
This morning I got up around 6:00 AM. I drank a pint (16 oz) of the sea salt flush. My hips and legs ache. My right eye has red puffiness under it and I have a zit on my chest. I have been asking the Lord to remove my desire for food. I really miss eating. Today I drank 6 glasses of the lemon cleanser. I jogged about ¾ of a mile in a light sprinkle. Being around food is hard. My family eats and I can smell it in the kitchen. Tonight I cooked spaghetti for my husband and as I cooked it I was thinking about how thankful I am for the food God gives us. I took another spa bath, but I used sea salt, ginger and hydrated Bentonite. I drank a smooth move. Fasting makes you appreciate food. Thank You Jesus!
Day 5 Saturday
December 30, 2006
Today I started with a smooth move. This morning the top part of my legs ache but not as bad as yesterday. This morning I got in the spa and used peppermint castile soap. It helped my achy legs. I drank 8 lemon cleansers.
This evening I feel better than I have in a long time. I am starting to feel alive, more awake, and I am beginning to feel more energy.
Tonight I don’t feel as hungry as I had been feeling. I am going to drink a smooth move. Dear Lord take my desire for food away. When Jesus fasted and Satan tempted him to turn stone to bread Jesus said man does not live by bread alone.
I took another spa bath with Epsom salt and ginger (tub time is a great time to pray). I continue to pray that I am doing this fast in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. I thank Jesus and all those on MySpace who are praying for me.
Day 6 Sunday
December 31, 2006
I got up and drank a smooth move. My right ear feels strange. I feel something going on inside of my ear. My legs still ache a little. Today I drank 8 lemon cleansers. I went jogging which I like to refer to as a spiritual run because I pray while I jog. I ran 1 mile which was easier than I thought it would be. When I finally started to think about how far I had gone I noticed I was coming up on my 1-mile marker. I came home and got in the spa using Epsom salt and ginger. My family has been eating around me and I am getting use to not eating. I still have desire for food but it is getting easier. I hear fireworks popping and I am thankful the Lord is helping me get through this fast. My blood pressure was better today than it has been in years 117/76. What a difference from less than 2 weeks ago when my blood pressure was 202/124 and my head and eyes were killing me. Man’s wisdom and God’s wisdom are different. I had people say you need to lower your blood pressure before you start your fast. But I have put my trust in Jesus and I know he will heal me. He is the great physician.
I had a smooth move.
Day 7 Monday
January 1, 2007
Happy New Year! I got up around 7:00 AM. I made my sea salt flush. I drank about a pint of it. I found that works well for me. It flushes me out well. Trying to drink a quart is hard to get down. I want to mention you would never want to leave your home for at least 2 to 2 ½ hours after taking in the salt water. By 2 ½ hours all the water has gone through me. When I do the sea salt flush it make me thirstier. I am not as hungry today as before. Actually, it isn’t hunger, but just the thought of food. It is a lot better now. Everyday I pray and in between, I am thanking the Lord for all he has done for me. My friends on MySpace, Sammy’s family, my family and friends have been part of my daily prayers. Again I can’t thank you enough for all your prayers that are coming to me. The Lord knew the right time for this fast. I went jogging (my spiritual run). My husband took before and after pictures. As I prayed the Lord was letting me know the importance of never trying to do a fast of this sort without prayer. Prayer is of the most importance in order to be successful in completing your fast. I drank 6 lemon cleansers and a smooth move.
I decorated the front of my journal.
Day 8 Tuesday
January 2, 2007
I got up and drank a smooth move around 8:00 AM. I got a late start today. It is almost 11:00 AM and I am on my first lemon cleanser. I am a little sleepy right now probably because I stayed up later than I should have.
Well, it is 7:30 PM and I made my 7th lemon cleanser. Today I have been more tired and hungry. My son was cooking Eggplant Parmesan with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese and I could smell it throughout the whole house. Even after I left the house I could still smell it when I got in my car. I think the smell stuck to my clothes. This day has been harder. I noticed that since I have been fasting I get colder now before I was always hot. I didn’t jog today. I find when I jog I am less hungry. Everyday I go through the prayer request at least twice and I want you to know I am praying for you. I know I will sleep well tonight because I am very tired. I am on my 8th glass of lemon cleanser and then have a smooth move. Lord, I pray tomorrow will be easier than today. I pray it will be more like yesterday.
Day 9 Wednesday
January 3, 2007
During the night I was so cold. The last two days have been this way. I drank a smooth move. Today I tried using lime instead of lemon in my cleanser. The taste isn’t much different other than the lime makes it a little tangier. I jogged 1 mile. When I got home I took a ginger and Epsom salt bath in the spa. I didn’t want to get out. Ginger causes your nose to run and you will feel burning all over your body. I find it very refreshing. Today I had 8 lime cleansers and another smooth move.
Day 10 Thursday
January 4, 2007
Well, it is day 10. I got up around 7:00 AM. I weighed this morning and I have lost 14 pounds. I took my blood pressure and I got an amazing reading of 109/69 heartbeat was 71. On Dec. 13, 2006 I had a reading of 202/ 124 (That night I was praying, Lord please don’t let me have a stroke before I get a chance to start my fast. I had the worse heartache that night.) My blood pressure was never that low when I was taking blood pressure medicine. One thing I have discovered is you always get different readings from one arm to the other. My blood pressure is usually lower with my left arm. I drank a smooth move. This morning I took chicken off the bones for the dogs with no problem. I laid in the spa using hydrated Bentonite. It is 5:30 PM and I am on my 7th lemon cleanser. My son was eating pizza and I am missing food bad. I feel a little depressed. Lord help me, please don’t let me fail. I know I can only do this with your help. I finished my 8th lemon cleanser and then had a smooth move
Day 11 Friday
January 5, 2007
It’s my birthday, I am 51 years old. I drank the sea salt flush and my stomach feels bad. I have a red bump that has come out in my ear. The sea salt flush was rough this morning. I know it is important because toxins left in the intestines can get reabsorbed back into the body and make a person really sick. My husband scrambled eggs this morning but I had no problem with it. Today was good. I jogged 1 mile and laid in the spa using ginger and Epsom salt. I drank 6 lemon cleansers today. I ended my day with a smooth move.
Day 12 Saturday
January 6, 2007
Every morning and evening I take time to pray. I go through each prayer request. Throughout the day I say little prayers. I just want to say thanks to everyone who has been praying for me. I know I wouldn’t have made it this far without the Lord and all of your prayers.
I woke up around 7:30 AM and had a smooth move. You can taste the licorice in it which I like. It is 2:20 PM and my older son cooked pizza and I can smell it all over the house. The smell is making me hungry. Lord take my desire for food away. I was itching a little and I had a little burning sensation in both arms. Maybe I am releasing more toxins today. I just showered and feel a little burning around the outside of my mouth. I am a little tired right now.
I took a short nap and then got up. I had a 30 minute workout. I have been getting the hiccups a lot lately. This evening my husband and youngest son went out to eat which is good. I won’t have to smell food cooking. Today I drank 8 lemon cleansers and had another smooth move. I was a little irritable today.
Day 13 Sunday
January 7, 2007
This morning I got up around 8:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. For the most part I have felt pretty good through this fast other than the desire and hunger for food. I know the Lord is with me and all those prayers, you are getting me through this. I listen to gospel music. I have been listening to Tim Hughes-“Here I Am to Worship”. It is so uplifting. I took a nap and got up. I then had a short workout. My husband took my old back-swing out of the attic. I bought it 30 years ago and I hung upside down for a little while. It stretches the vertebras in the spine. I took another ginger and Epsom salt bath in the spa. I find it so refreshing and it is a great time to pray. Today I drank 8 glasses of the lemon cleanser. I had a smooth move.
Day 14 Monday
Jan. 8, 2007
Today I got up at 7:00 AM and I drank a smooth move. I spent some time taking pictures for the fast, the Lord put it in my heart. Today I jogged 1 mile (my spiritual run). It releases endorphins in the brain which make you feel good. I drank 7 lemon cleansers today. This evening my knees are hurting really bad especially my left knee. I have some swelling below the knee cap. I had a smooth move.
Day 15 Tuesday
January 9, 2007
Last night and this morning my knees have been hurting. My left knee is a little puffy. I woke up at 7:00 AM and had a smooth move. I wanted to do the sea salt flush but I knew it wouldn’t be a good idea to do it today. Getting up and down is painful and the flush calls for a lot of that. I had a few stomach cramps this morning but they stopped. I used some mineral salts in the spa for my knees. I am so hungry for food. My desire for food is strong. I think smelling it makes it harder. I cooked for my husband today. Yesterday I almost got in a wreck because I noticed new restaurants and I ran a red light luckily the other driver stopped. It was like I was in a trance. Lord please take the desire for food away. I had a few days that were easier but most days I desire food greatly. But I know this is the Lord’s will for me and I know this will be a great blessing. I remind myself of all those hurting and what I am going through is nothing compared to all of their pain. I know this will all be worth it in the end. I just need to stay strong and not give in to temptation. I am just being honest of how I feel. Very hungry. Who said you lose your desire for food. It is 15 days and I still desire it. Lord make me strong. Today I drank 6 lemon cleansers and had a smooth move. (I had a dream. There was a storm and the glass door broke. Glass was flying and pieces of glass stuck in my left side. I wanted my mother to take me to the hospital but she said no you go, you will be fine.) I wonder what this dream means.
Day 16 Wednesday
January 10, 2007
Last night was my worse night since I started my fast. I couldn’t sleep because my legs ached. Every way I laid hurt. I got up at 5:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. I would love to say fasting is easy but I need to be honest and not sugar coat it. The only reason I won’t give up is because I know this is the will of the Lord and all of the friends on MySpace. I know many are hurting more than what I am going through. Lord, I pray this fast is pleasing to you. My knees are still hurting but they are a little better than yesterday. I think this is the Lord’s way of getting me to slow down. I may be exerting myself too much. My left knee is still swollen and my right foot has two bumps where my veins are. I laid in the spa today using ginger and Epsom salt. My skin was itching. This evening I have been a little light-headed and dizzy. I drank 8 lemon cleansers and had a smooth move. I should sleep well tonight since I didn’t sleep much last night. Thank you Lord for not letting me give up. My family told me tonight I make fasting look easy.
Day 17 Thursday
January 11, 2007
Again I want to thank everyone who is praying for me. I know your prayers are helping. I got up at 6:00 AM and drank a smooth move. I took a short nap around noon and I had a dream. I dreamed I was at this church the evening before service. On the floor laid small mattresses that covered the whole room. The members started coming in and laying down on the mattresses. The next morning they arose and their mattresses turned into seats. I noticed they went straight into worship. They never bothered to have breakfast. When I woke up I was trying to understand what this dream could mean.
I believe the Lord was telling me, prayer comes before food. It is almost 2:00 PM and I drank 2 lemon cleansers. My knees are still sore but much better than yesterday and the day before. My legs aren’t hurting anymore. I drank 4 more lemon cleanser. I felt good today.
This evening my legs and knees are hurting again. I guess I was standing too much. I had another smooth move. It is 10:30 PM and I am feeling a little itchy, my toes on my right foot are red.
Day 18 Friday
January 12, 2007
It is 4:05 AM and I can’t sleep, my legs and knees are hurting so bad. I can’t get comfortable. I just drank the sea salt flush. I want to make sure the toxins are getting flushed out. I am itching so my body is probably releasing a lot of toxins at this time. I feel irritable I guess because I can’t sleep. Lord I need you, I know you are here, help me to get rid of this pain in my legs. Well it is almost 6:00 AM and I have the house 80 degrees and I am still cold, so I put on a heavy robe. Before at 70 degrees I would be hot. What a change my body is going through. My elimination is great considering I am not eating food. I am freezing now. This is my first time to fast and being 51 years old I probably have a lot of toxins built up over the years. My stomach is rumbling so I made my lemon cleanser it is 6:08 AM. Hopefully I will be able to go to sleep soon. That is another thing different, before the fast I could go to sleep in the blink of an eye. My husband would always say I was the fastest person he knew to fall asleep. I am not used to having insomnia. I rubbed a little tea tree oil on me to help my itching. It is 12:00 PM so I am going to lie down and try to take a nap. Now it is 12:50 PM that nap didn’t work my legs are hurting too bad, so I am going to lie in the spa. I am only going to use ginger today. It is 2:00 PM I just finished my bath. I made the water as hot as I could stand it. I was praying and the interpretation to the dream I had the other day came to me. I wrote about it on day 15. Well, this fast is like the storm and the glass in my side is the pain I am going through. My mother telling me I will be fine is the Lord saying I will come out fine from this fast. I want to add this. I noticed a connection between my legs hurting and my blood pressure. It has been higher these last few days since my legs started hurting me. Today I got a reading of 151/93 heart rate 72. It is 6:30 PM and I have been awake since 3:00 AM. I can’t sleep yet I am tired. I haven’t been able to jog to release endorphins in my brain and I am feeling depressed. I feel like there is a battle going on inside me between my flesh and my spirit. My flesh wants food and the desire for it is overwhelming, my spirit says no. I must do the will of the Lord. I think Satan is doing his best to break me. Lord help me! I am doing everything I can to not think about it. But I am struggling because it is hard for me. I can’t do much because of the pain in my legs. I need you Lord, I know I can’t do this alone but I know this is nothing compared to the suffering you Lord endured. Please keep my strong. There are so many others hurting much more than I and I pray Lord you take their pain away. You said enduring pain and suffering for your sake is what makes us worthy for eternal life. I do so much want to fit that mold. I desire your glory. I feel light-headed. Well, it is 7:00 PM and I am on my 6th lemon cleanser. I put a pain relief therapy patch on each knee so I hope I will be able to sleep.
Day 19 Saturday
January 13, 2007
Well, last night I got a good night sleep. I woke up at 7:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. My legs aren’t aching but my knees still hurt. I am still wearing the therapy patch on my knees. I feel much better this morning than I did last night. I laid in the spa using ginger and eucalyptus Dead Sea mineral bath salts. I am really having problems with my knees. They are swelling up. Most of the swelling is below the knee cap but it is very difficult to get up and down. Even walking hurts. I have to walk and try not to bend my knees. This evening I am using a massager on my legs to see if it will help the pain. Lord please heal my knees and take this pain away. I guess the Lord doesn’t want me doing too much while I am fasting. I am sure this is a blessing, just a painful one. My husband and younger son went to eat Mexican food. I personally am not crazy about it so it good they are doing it now. It is good they get to enjoy father and son time together. When they get home we are going to play a game. I still am not watching any TV or getting on the internet. My husband and I aren’t intimate during this time. I explained it will have to wait till my fast is over. I am glad he is understanding. I drank 8 lemon cleansers and had a smooth move.
Day 20 Sunday
January 14, 2007
I woke up at 7:00 AM. I made a smooth move. Today is the 20th day and so far I have lost 21 pounds. I am sitting listening to gospel music. I feel sad; my flesh is torturing me with the desire for food. It is 1:09 PM and my husband just scrambled eggs and I smell them. I don’t even want to go in the kitchen and see them. I used the massager on my legs again today. I believe it is helping some. I am having a few stomach cramps. It is 3:52 PM and I am going on my 5th lemon cleaner. I am trying to get rid of these hunger pains. Lord help me! I had a total of 7 lemon cleanser and another smooth move. I was reading a book by Don Colbert, MD called “Get Healthy Through Detox and Fasting” It is an excellent book and he talks a lot about the spiritual side of fasting. I am thinking the reason my legs have been hurting so much is because my body is in the process of breaking down the plaque that is in my arteries. The book talks about how it elevates the cholesterol which is a good thing. That means the fast is working. Much plaque can build up in your lower extremities. I felt tired most of the day, little energy. I feel the toxins are dumping a lot now. My blood pressure hasn’t gone back to the low readings I got in the early part of my fast. I got a reading of 145/87 still that is much better than before my fast which averaged 175 to 185 over 95 to 112. I peaked at 202/124 having the worse headache on Dec 23, 2006.
Day 21 Monday
January 15, 2007
Today I got up at 7:00 AM. I first made the sea salt flush, took a sip and poured it out. I just couldn’t stomach it this morning so I drank the smooth move. I didn’t have any cravings for food today. I felt good until this evening when my left knee started hurting really bad. I laid in the spa using ginger to help the pain. Today I had 7 lemon cleansers and another smooth move. A neighbor girl brought over some vegetable soup and cornbread for my older son. It smelled so good. I plan to cook soup when I am able to eat again.
Day 22 Tuesday
January 16, 2007
This morning I woke up around 6:00 AM. I made the sea salt flush. It is 11:49 AM, I just showered. I am hungry again, my stomach has been rumbling. I have completed 3 weeks of my fast. I haven’t eaten since Christmas; my last meal was my Christmas dinner. Again I want to thank everyone who has been praying for me. Thank you, father, for giving me the strength to fight my flesh’s desires. It is 8:18 PM for the most part the day was good, but the pain in my knees continues. I just put some more patches on them. I really was hoping to workout but with my knees like this, there is no way. I had 6 lemon cleansers and a smooth move. I have been trying to go to sleep but I am itching. It is 11:51 PM I guess I will go get in the spa and see if it helps. I used my massager on my legs.
Day 23 Wednesday
January 17, 2007
It is 1:00 PM and I just got out of the tub. I used ginger and sea salt, my itching is gone now. I have been breaking out a little on my lower back. A few months ago I noticed a lump on my spine. It is located a little lower than the middle of my back. It is about the size of a small bird egg. It is hard and it doesn’t move, but it doesn’t hurt. I have been brushing my teeth about 10 times a day. I don’t feel comfortable with the taste in my mouth. When you detox your tongue gets coated with a white film. I use the tongue scraper to remove it. I like to add a couple of drops of grapefruit seed extract (it kills germs) and a cap full of tea tree mouthwash in my water-pic. That makes your mouth feel refreshed. I would like to add, never use grapefruit seed extra (GSE) full strength, it will burn you. I am going to make another lemon cleanser then try to sleep. I did go to sleep, I got up around 6:45 AM and drank a smooth move, I laid in the spa tonight using ginger, sea salt and clove. I had a smooth move. It is 11:12 PM and I am feeling very tired. The bath was very relaxing.
Earlier today I went to the health food store to buy more ginger and they were sold out. A couple of weeks ago when I went they had a bunch. I guess it is a big seller. Of course, they are the only one around here selling it.
Day 24 Thursday
January 18, 2007
Last night I dreamed my fast was over and there was so much food around me. I started eating and then I realized I was supposed to start out slow. In my dream I was fine but from all I have read, it is very important to start back slowly. The book’s say you can get very sick and in some cases even die.
I got up at 7:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. This evening I laid in the spa using ginger and sea salt. These baths are making my skin really soft. My knees are feeling better. Today I drank 6 lemon cleansers and I had a smooth move.
Day 25 Friday
January 19, 2007
I woke up around 6:00 AM and made a smooth move. Now it is 8:27 AM I feel a little depressed and tired. Maybe these little mood swings are normal when fasting. I know this is the 25th day yet I know I still have 15 days to go and that seems far off to me. Lord help me! Take my desire for food away. Please don’t let me fail. I know this will be a blessing for all my friends on the site. It is 11:23 AM and I have this mental pain. My flesh wants food and is telling me to eat and my spirit is telling me to do the Lord’s will. I know I must listen to my spirit, but my flesh is screaming out. This is Satan using my flesh to try to lasso my Spirit. I know I can’t let Satan defeat my Spirit. Lord make my Spirit strong against my flesh. I tell myself Moses did it and Jesus did it. Jesus was tempted throughout his fast by Satan. He stayed strong and by defeating Satan the bible says Jesus came out from his fast with the
power of the Spirit. I want the power of the Spirit in my life for my prayers to help those in need and to heal me. This evening I laid in the spa using ginger, sea salt, and clove. I drank 8 lemon cleansers and I had a smooth move. Today my knees are doing much better. My left knee only hurts a little and my right knee is back to normal. My son bought a treadmill and I worked out on it just a little and I did a few setups.
Day 26 Saturday
January 20, 2007
It is amazing how the Lord continues to help me get through each day. Some days have been so difficult yet the Lord provides me with the strength to go on. I am sure many prayers are being answered. Those who have been praying for me I have been asking the Lord to send special blessing your way. I thank you so much from the depths of my heart. Today I woke up around 8:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. During the night I woke up at 4:00 AM and it took me about 45 minutes to fall back to sleep, but the rest of the night I slept well. The toes on my right foot look a little strange. The other day my toes on that foot were really red, now they look sort of dried out. At 2:00 PM I went to a baby shower. I prayed before and asked the Lord to help me be strong so I could resist any temptation of food. Thanks to the Lord I found it easy even though all the food set right in front of me.
Day 27 Sunday
January 21, 2007
I woke up around 7:00 AM and drank a smooth move. It is 1:42 PM and I am desiring food again really bad. My husband cooked some veggie burgers and I am smelling them. He is eating in the next room and I can hear him eating chips. Help me Lord; take this desire for food away. Please don’t let me fail. It is 1:46 PM and I am on my 4th lemon cleanser, my stomach has been rumbling again. Today was a rough day as far as my desire for food. I ran and walked 1 mile on the treadmill. I laid in the spa using ginger and sea salt. I drank 6 lemon cleansers and I had a smooth move.
Day 28 Monday
January 22, 2007
I didn’t sleep well last night, but it was caused by things waking me, the phone and the dogs. I woke up at 7:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. My husband is off work for a few days so he is going to go on the fast for 2 or 3 days. This morning I made him the sea salt flush (32 oz quart size) since this is his first day. I started out drinking the quart the first two times then I decreased it to a pint (16oz). I drank 6 lemon cleansers and had a smooth move. Today was a good day. My husband completed today, but he was feeling tired being this was his first day.
Day 29 Tuesday
January 23, 2007
This morning I woke up around 6:50 AM. I drank the sea salt flush. I am having a little itching on my mid and lower back. It has started breaking out near the lump on my spine. Since I first noticed the lump a few months ago I have never had any pain associated with it. This evening I did some sit-ups and I had a little workout on the treadmill. I laid in the spa using ginger, sea salt, and clove. I drank 6 lemon cleansers and I had a smooth move. Today is my husbands second day on the fast and he has been very hungry. He has been weak and nauseated. He did the sea salt flush (16oz) this morning. He had 6 lemon cleansers. For him it is difficult drinking the smooth move, he says it is the worst tasting tea he has ever tasted. It doesn’t bother me, I think it taste fine. It gives me something different to taste other than the master cleanser. Before my husband started this fast he was saying things like how easy it is to go without eating for a few days. But just 2 days on the fast he has found it to be difficult. I told him it wasn’t easy but the Lord and the prayers are what’s helping me get through this fast.
Day 30 Wednesday
January 24, 2007
Today I woke up around 7:00 AM. I drank a smooth move. I weighed this morning and I have lost 26 pounds, I took my blood pressure this morning and I got a reading of 111/68 with a 66 heart rate. I did another reading and this time I got an amazing low of 106/63 with a heart rate of 63. It has been years since I had a blood pressure reading that low, actually I don’t remember it ever being that low, maybe when I was a teenager. I have been listening to Christian radio 100.7 FM; I really enjoy listening to the Bible Answer Man. I drank 6 lemon cleansers and I had another smooth move this evening. I had my husband rub some hydrated Bentonite on my lower back where it has been breaking out. My husband finished up his 3 day fast today.
Day 31 Thursday
January 25, 2007
I woke up at 7:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. Today my husband and I went to the park and we both jogged a mile. My legs never bothered me but I found the jogging difficult. After my jog my throat and lungs felt like they were burning. I have been very hungry today. Since my husband’s 3 day fast is over he ate an orange then he ate a bowl of cheerios with soy milk. So far he feels fine. I must say just driving around in the car there are restaurants everywhere. Yesterday we went to Ace Hardware and they were giving away fresh popcorn. Food is everywhere but then I think about those starving in other countries, it is so hard to imagine the pain those people are suffering. It really makes me sad when I think of the children. It is 3:38 PM I am continuing to get amazing blood pressure reading. It is truly awesome. Some would say it is because of the weight lose but three years ago I still weighed less than I do now but my blood pressure was ranging around 155/95 so I know that is more than just weight loss. It is 4:06 PM and I took some blood pressure readings, I broke new low records 96/60 and 95/59. I can’t believe how outstanding my blood pressure is, it is remarkable. It is 6:22 PM my husband took my youngest son out to eat at Lubys. He had a vegetable plate. I feel very tired and extremely hungry. It is getting harder to down the lemon cleanser. So far I have had 4 of them. Lord help me continue with this fast. My desire for food is great. I know I can only do this with your help. My face looks splotchy and my left eyelid is droopy. Tonight I laid in the spa using ginger, sea salt, and mineral salts. I had 6 lemon cleanser today and a smooth move. It was difficult to get the drinks down but I managed.
Day 32 Friday
January 26, 2007
Today I woke up at 7:00 AM. I drank a smooth move. I took my blood pressure this morning and I got a reading of 99/56 and a heart rate of 62. That was from my left arm, then I took a reading in my right arm and I got 99/60 heart rate 63. It is 2:41 PM and my family ordered pizza, it smells so good. Today I learned something really interesting. There is a big difference between refined salt and unrefined sea salt. Unrefined sea salt is healthy for the body in moderation. It can actually lower high blood pressure. It also has an alkaline effect on the body. A test was done that showed how 1 teaspoon of the unrefined sea salt increased the PH in a ½ cup of water from 6.4 to 6.8-7.0 then the same test was done with refined salt and the PH decreased from 6.4-6.0. A healthy body needs to have a PH that stays around 7.2 though usually in the morning it is lower. I have been reading a book called “Salt Your Way To Health” by David Brownstein, MD. He recommends using either Celtic or Redmond sea salt. It is an excellent book and I highly recommend reading it. His website is www.drbrownstein.com. It is 6:33PM and I am feeling very light-headed. It is 8:46 PM and I just finished my 6th lemon cleanser. I had a smooth move.
Day 33 Saturday
January 27, 2007
It is 3:42 AM and I can’t sleep. I have been awake since 3:00 AM. My back is itching and I know it is going to continue unless I go lay in the spa. I am very tired. It is now 5:30 AM and I just finished lying in the spa. All my itching is gone, I used ginger and sea salt. After the spa bath, I had no trouble sleeping. I woke up at 9:00 AM and drank the sea salt flush. It is 12:37 PM and I have just now drank my 1st lemon cleanser. I am getting a late start today. Earlier all I wanted was plain water. It is 9:07 PM and all I have managed to get down is 4 lemon cleansers. I am hungry but I just can’t drink anymore today. I am going to have a smooth move and just plain water. My husband and son went out to eat Mexican Food. We played Bible Trivia this evening.
Day 34 Sunday
January 28, 2007
Each day is a struggle for me. You would think being my last week I would find it easier but my flesh is fighting back harder against my spirit. My flesh is making it hard to drink my drink and I am struggling to get them down. I don’t want to get physically weak. Continual prayer and knowing this is the will of God is the strength that is getting me through each day. I know this fast will be a blessing for the site, so I know it is necessary that I not let my flesh and Satan win out. Lord please help me get through these last few days! I woke up at 8:30 AM and drank a smooth move. It is hard deciding rather to drink the sea salt or the smooth move because anything I drink is hard to get down. I took my blood pressure and I got a reading of 113/63 heart rate of 60 on my left arm. My right arm had a reading of 111/63 heart rate 56. My emotions are running rapid. I feel like crying. My stomach is rumbling with hunger. I am thinking I may go run and pray. Right now I feel almost like I can’t keep going but I know I must. Lord help me and please don’t let me fail. I know the only way I can do this is with your help. Well, I jogged 1 mile and it felt good. It is 4:19 PM and I just finished my first lemon cleanser. It is getting very difficult for me to drink it. I just poured a glass of water and I am going to drink it. I don’t think I am going to be able to drink my 6 lemon cleansers anymore. I just pray I don’t get weak before my fast is over. I laid in the spa using ginger and sea salt. I managed to drink 3 lemon cleansers today and I had another smooth move.
Day 35 Monday
January 29, 2007
I woke up at 5:00 AM stayed awake about 45 minutes before falling back to sleep. I woke up at 7:08 AM and made the sea salt flush but today I couldn’t drink it, so I made the smooth move instead. I want food, but it is hard putting the drink in my body. The easiest thing for me to down is water. Every day now I am getting excellent blood pressure readings. I have lost 28 pounds and I feel much better than before I started my fast. I have 5 days left after today. Each day I have to take it one day at a time. I must make it through my lows and highs with the help of the Lord and those praying for me. Without yours prayers and the Lord I know I would have given up a long time ago. This is the first time in my life to fast so it really has been a new experience. But it has been a struggle so I am not going to lie and say it was easy. Well, it is 9:00 PM; I laid in the spa using ginger and sea salt. I drank 6 lemon cleansers, but the only way I could get them down was by taking the ingredients separately. I may have to continue this way until my fast is over. I had a smooth move.
Day 36 Tuesday
January 30, 2007
I woke up at 4:00 AM and it is now 4:47 AM. I have been thinking and praying, I know the Lord is helping me and I think back to the first night when I had dreamed about Jesus holding my hands. He was letting me know from the beginning he was with me. The fact it was a silhouette dream, something I have never had before lets me know it came from the Lord. The Lord is truly amazing. I pray I am doing this fast in a way that is pleasing to you Lord. I woke up at 7:00 AM, I was sleeping really well but I had to get up to get my son off to school. I drank the sea salt flush this morning. I took a short nap and had a workout on the treadmill and I did a few sit-ups. I have been drinking my lemon cleansers by separating the ingredients. I managed to get 4 down today and a smooth move.
Day 37 Wednesday
January 31, 2007
I woke up around 7:00 AM and I drank a smooth move. Since I have been on this fast my family hasn’t been eating very healthy. I have been letting my husband and older son go to the store but they come home with mostly unhealthy food. They never buy vegetables. Today I am going to go to the store and I pray I will stay strong from the temptation of food. I am planning to make a big pot of vegetable soup so after my fast I will sip on the broth and then start eating it. I ended up going to Whole Foods. I made sure to pray before entering the store. If you have ever been to one you know how wonderful that store is. They give out free samples but of course I knew I would not be able to try any. Everything looked great. I bought all kinds of organic fruits and vegetables. I didn’t realize just how much I was spending until I got to the register. I spent $275.00. It is a great store but their prices are high. When I got home I decided to cook for my family since I figured they needed to have a good meal to eat.. I spent hours in the kitchen preparing food. I bought so many different kinds of vegetables. I made a stew for them and some cornbread. I also decided to go ahead a make my homemade vegetable soup. I ended up making two pots of it so I decided to freeze it since I can’t eat any for a few more days. I know freezing isn’t the best way to do things but my excitement got the best of me and I was gun hoe about making it. But now I have something to look forward to when I can eat. I was only able to drink 4 lemon cleansers and I had a smooth move.
Day 38 Thursday
February 1, 2007
I woke up at 7:00 AM and I drank the sea salt flush. I was just thinking of what a blessing this fast has been and for the Lord to put this in my heart. I know my previous years I would never had thought or even desired to take on a fast of this sort. Truly I am blessed for the Lord has continued to get me through each day one at a time. As my fast is nearing the end I continue to give thanks to the Lord and all of you who have been praying for me. Today I laid in the spa for an hour using ginger and sea salt. I only managed to drink 1 lemon cleanser. I am trying to drink plain water. It is very difficult to drink even water but I am trying. I cut up a salad for the family and I made them some peanut butter crispy snacks. I did manage to drink a smooth move.
Day 39 Friday
February 2, 2007
Today I woke up at 7:00 AM. I am having a lot of rumbling in my stomach. I feel a little edgy, my patience is wearing thin. Today I drank 2 lemon cleansers and had my morning smooth move and my evening one. It is good my fast is nearing the end because you wouldn’t believe how hard it is now to drink these things. It may have been easier had I had a variety of different juices to choose from, but I didn’t want to change what I had started. It is 10:04 PM and I have about 26 hours left.
Day 40 Saturday
February 3, 2007
It is 3:21 AM I have been awake for 2 hours. I woke up around 1:00 AM and I was itching like crazy. I laid around for about 30 minutes trying to go back to sleep but the itching was terrible so I laid in the spa for about 1 hour using ginger and sea salt. I still have a little itching but it is much better. I feel like my body is dumping a lot of toxins now maybe because I am mostly drinking water. I have lost 33 pounds since I started this fast. I am hoping I will now be able to sleep. I ended up falling to sleep quickly. I woke up at 8:30 AM. I could only get down 8 oz. of the sea salt flush. I drank 3 lemon cleansers today. I decided not to drink the smooth move.
Sunday February 4, 2007 Praise The Lord! I am so thankful the Lord saw me through the fast. AMEN!!! First day after the fast. At 12:15 AM I heated up some of the homemade organic soup. I ate a small amount and went to sleep. I had no problems eating. I learned that the greatest blessings follow fasting and praying!
