Hey ladies, thanks for checking in and the honesty and all the encouragement!
I'm sharing a brief post from Rachael and the start of her journey through Seven...
I started 7 last night (10-9). I feel as though God isn't calling me to go full out on fasting but instead take one meal out of my day to have a reduce simplified meal so I can pray for spiritual growth and guidance and for others whom are less fortunate than me. My heart is burdened for those in the United States. Some may think that's silly but the statistics showing how many millions of Americans are food insecure (different than poverty) is outstanding! I would love to be able to get involved locally with some organization to help others out. This is one thing ill be praying for when my tummy growls throughout the day! Another thing that God has placed on my heart was to clean out my pantry and to donate all the food that I haven't used (still within expiration date of course). This is definitely one thing that I would like to continue once this month is over! So, to kick things off Last night I ate a bland romaine salad with boiled egg and bland chicken and home made croutons (minus all the fixings). Maya enjoyed the croutons...ha! But boy would I like some flavor. My tummy was a rumbling last night for some more food!! Praying for us all as we go through this journey together!!
I am loving the idea of donating food from our pantry. How about each of us bring...wait for it...SEVEN items from our pantry to put in Valley View's food drive bins?! And...try and pick some of the good stuff, not the stuff that's been sitting there because you don't even want to eat it - or is that just me and my pantry talking!? :)
How is this week going so far?
