The Lord is continuing to give me revelation. It is quiet amazing what you don’t see.
A few days into the fast, I couldn’t have imagined what He would show me.
I prayed about the bondage food has over me and my family. My mom came to me the other day and said, “I have been looking things up on fasting and I came across this documentary you’ve got to see.”
It is called “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead”. I pulled it up and watched it. It was unbelievable.
A man who was suffering from an autoimmune disorder, decided after seeing several doctors and being on prednisone for 9 years, that he was going to take matters into his own hands.
He was documenting his journey. His theory was, when I was a kid and I got a scratch on me knee, it healed itself. I didn’t have to do anything to it, but leave it alone of course while it healed. Why can’t the inside of the body do the same thing?
He bought a juicer and started his journey of a 60 day Juice fast. All vegetables, fruits, and nuts.
After, I watched what happened to this man, it all made sense. He was completely cured of his disease, was able to get off all medications, and completely transformed his body, mind, and soul.
He was able on the other side to see that food, was his drug addiction.
After I watched my head was spinning. God was revealing something to me. I have always looked at food through my flesh perspective, and never through the perspective of the spirit.
Food is legal, it’s a must, how could it be so bad.
It’s not that it is bad, God showed me, that when He created man in His image “Adam”, he created everything man would need within fruits, vegetables, and nuts. All of the things we need to avoid disease. Everything we need to keep our physical bodies in harmony with our spirits.
Then there was sin. Sin defiled all things, including food.
Food had slipped under the radar. Yes, we all know America is obese, we all know we should eat better, we all know we need more physical activity. But, just like me, we are not doing anything about it. We are tired, foggy, unwilling, burdened. Food is the root. What we are feeding to our bodies.
As I reflected on this, God gave me a prompting to write down all the things that would be cured in my life and the life of my family if we got back to basics, like Joe did from “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.”
Marty- Clear my skin, eliminate anxiety, ( little known, I don’t talk about it, I have shaking, and constant pain, chronic fatigue, also low vitamin D levels), Excess weight removal, more energy.
Gino- Off meds, excess weight removal, arthritis in spine will have limited pain
Gabby- Excess weight removal, better self esteem, reduce asthma symptoms, sleep better, eliminate anxiety
Gianna- Excess weight removal, self esteem, anxiety.
I don’t know exactly how this will all play out. I will only let the spirit of God lead me and my family. But, I feel confident in saying, I believe this fast has changed the direction of my life.
I have dieted over the years, I have tried to be “skinny”. But, what God is showing me is far beyond how I viewed it before.
It is about how we as a human race were intended to be. The real me is inside this body heavy laden with toxins and chemicals, that alter everything I was intended to be. What we were all intended to be.
Build your kingdom here, a verse from a song. I get that. Let’s prepare ourselves, mind, body and soul for God’s Kingdom HERE!
