fast broken

so i made it. i made it 25 days. 25 days of rice, chicken, sweet potatoes, apples, bananas, yogurt, and black beans. sounds delightful right? i was set to go all 30 days. but something really big happened. and if you know me or have my email you can ask me….otherwise lets just say it was so worth breaking it!

when i started the challenge of only eating 7 foods for the month i knew that unless i got really sick or a mountain was moved in our adoption i would keep to it. needless to say…mountains moved! the day before a group of friends met to pray. to pray down the number of orphans. for spiritual oppression. for ethical court systems. for birth mothers who have chosen life. for the countries that we are all adopting from. for mountains to move.

i know that mountains can move. i have seen it happen before my eyes. i know that the God that spoke the mountains into existence can make them move with a breathe. i know this. i believe this. with every ounce of my soul i know this. i also know this. He can choose to not move them. He can choose for things to stay the same. even when the mountains stand still. He still is. He is all powerful. He is almighty. He is sovereign. He is gentle. He is the King. He is all knowing. He is. He was. and He always will be.

the fast has been broken….let us take comfort in our King.
