All I Can Think About Right Now Is Food

This is a Bedouin dinner, cooked in a hole in the ground, and served in a tent (or just outside of one). It takes 12 hours to cook.

Oh, the things you learn when you try new experiences. Like fasting for four days. I had planned to go five days originally, but I just am tired of it. I keep thinking about food. It doesn’t help that every book I read, and every movie I watch has food in it, and not just a brief mention of it, either. And social media – don’t get me started. So tomorrow I’m breaking my fast and eating. Unless some miracle happens and I forget about food completely until tomorrow night.

Today I discovered that Himalayan salt in water and vitamin B is a good way to overcome lightheadedness or lethargy that may occur when you fast. It works almost instantly – it was like night and day for me. I was actually able to go on a pretty vigorous walk today and take care of some other things I needed to do. The air is clearing up here, so that helps also.

I’m sure glad God has better endurance than I do. He helps me to accomplish the work he sets before me and he lifts me up when I stumble.

Isaiah 40:28-31 NIV
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. [29] He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. [30] Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; [31] but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
