I’m a bit behind in posting this brisk Friday morning. I’m hopeful that your Christmas was wonderful. I was able to drive to visit my son and his new wife on Christmas day. My son turned 30 years old and we surprised him for this over-the-hill birthday. Yep, he is my Christmas baby. We had a great time but it was a quick trip.
I wanted to give you a peek at what’s coming for the New Year.
If you are new to our community, we want to invite you to our annual fast. Every January we, as a community, fast together for five days. This year we plan to fast Monday, January 7th through the 11th. There are many ways to go about fasting. For me personally, I am planning a day-time fast. I fast all day until sundown and then have dinner with my family.
During this fast we pray for God’s anointing upon the year ahead. We seek His Presence and His will for our lives. We pray for our spouse’s salvation and for our children. Rosheeda Lee leads us through this fast every day posting a prayer and/or instructions.
I’m convinced there is great power in fasting. Jesus often fasted and He is our example. It is difficult to fast but when we humble ourselves and give our basic desires for food over to God, He moves the heavens for our petitions.
So, if you have never fasted before ask God now if you are to participate in this week of fasting. And to read more about how to fast, visit this page as we have many resources about fasting.

Following our week of fasting we will launch right into a new series regarding the spiritual realms and how we recognize spiritual battles, how we fight within them and how we bring the authority and power Christ has given us into our lives. I’m positively psyched about this series.
My friends, 2013 is gearing up to be another exciting and fantastic year walking with Jesus. Our walk with God is ALWAYS the BEST ride of our lives. Love you much, Have a great day. Hugs, Lynn
