Last year, for the first time, I joined my church on a 21 day fast. I chose to do a Daniel Fast – which means essentially keeping a vegan diet and eating no processed foods. It was a great time of prayer and really allowed me to reset and focus on drawing closer to God. You can read more about my experience with the Daniel Fast last year here, here and here (and check out my Daniel Fast pinterest board with lots of recipes here).
This year, because of my somewhat intense running schedule, I decided to change my fast up a bit. I’m fasting red meat + sweets. Normally the sweets thing wouldn’t be a challenge at all but I’ve been on candy overload since my office has been inundated with sweet stuff since Thanksgiving, it seems. I’m looking forward to this season of clarity – especially since “put God first” was one of my goals for 2014.
Do you do any kind of “reset” in the new year?
