Mid-week, and this is when fasting becomes difficult. What I want to tell you is that when you reach Friday and you remained in the fast, you will feel such a surge of accomplishment and pride in your perseverance. And the flip-side, you will be disappointed you didn’t make yourself finish strong because our next fast isn’t until September.
White-knuckle your determination. And gang, I’m saying this to me specifically. I’m staying focused on the juicy hamburger I’m going to eat on Friday at sunset. *grin*
I know that you will welcome me into your house,
for I am covered by your covenant of mercy and love.
So I come to your sanctuary with deepest awe
to bow in worship and adore you.
Yahweh, lead me in the pathways of your pleasure
just like you promised me you would,
or else my enemies will conquer me.
Smooth out your road in front of me,
straight and level so that I will know where to walk. —Psalms 5:7-8 (Passion)

Jesus, what area in my life are you making straight? Jesus, can I trust you to show me where to walk?

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.
