sick breath

Posted by slykwyk on April 28, 2010

Yesterday I fasted.  I don’t mention that to say “Look at me!” at all.  I say that to explain the title AND to let you know why.

The funny story – I went to kiss Kara yesterday afternoon and she said, “No way!  You got sick breath!”  I guess not eating makes your breath kind of nasty!  Oh well.

The real reason for the fast – because I DO like kissing my wife – was I sometimes find myself beginning to rely on what I can do and I lose focus on what God can do or is doing.  I spent the day reading, journaling, praying and listening to my stomach grumble.  I asked for God’s leading in my life, in the life of our new church and at the end of the day realized I don’t give the Holy Spirit enough room to work in and through me.  I felt like at the end of the day my physical hunger could only be taken care of by being spiritually fed.

I enjoyed the time alone, the time to reflect, the time to ask questions, the time to be focused, the time to listen, the time to be open to God’s leading.  I highly recommend it when you are feeling like you are in control.  Funny how God reminds us he is.

BTW, I did brush my teeth and use mouth wash later in the day.  And yes, Kara kissed me…
