Since I resigned from work, I had more time preparing meals especially breakfast!
One breakfast, I cooked for me and my roomie some buttered carrots, omelette and our favorite chorizo made in Cebu. It’s just nice to have normal meals on weekdays.
I craved also for some sweets this week that I bought donuts and a box of chocolate-filled pretzel sticks.
I realized how dependent we are with food that sometimes we feel like we are about to die if we can’t eat a proper meal on time.
I’m glad that Jesus taught us about prayer and fasting. Not just that it reminds me that I don’t live by bread alone, but it’s an amazing journey with the Lord as He enables me to just be dependent and focused on Him alone. It is a time of prayer and studying of the Bible instead of eating meals. It could be a one meal fast or three meals fast and it could be three days or a week. Aside from meals, there’s also a fast from the things that usually take away our time for God like watching television and/or the internet (Facebook, etc.)
If you haven’t tried prayer and fasting, I really recommend you give it a try. You will experience God much deeper.
