Day 9: The Gratitude Challenge

One of the best things during a fasting period is my deliberate attempt to minimize social activities. Being around people and food not only makes me feel weaker but it also takes away my ability to be more still and hear from Him.



Today, I am grateful to have been able to spend time with God. An unhurried time of prayer and reading His Word.

Quiet time brought me to Deuteronomy 10:12-13 and I loved His gentle reminders for me:

1) Live in His presence in holy reverence

2) Follow the road He sets out for me

3) Love Him with all my heart

4) Serve Him with everything I have in me

5) Obey His commandments

6) Live a good life. The kind of good life that honors 1 to 5.

"Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name." (Psalm 86:11)
