Tag Archives: self control


10 Jan


You may have noticed that there was no blog entry yesterday.  I promise that it’s not because I went on a fast food binge.  It’s because my church began a corporate time of prayer and fasting.  When some people fast, they fast all food.  When other people fast, they only eat vegetables and water.  Lots of people I know fast items other than food, like television or social media.  Whatever you fast, it’s important to spend that time and energy you would normally expend on that food or luxury item with the Lord.  I didn’t write anything because I was still trying to figure out what I was going to fast.  I’ve decided to keep that unpublished, so for the next several days, you won’t be seeing my daily food choices.

Just like any real weight loss system, fasting takes self-control.  If you let anything master you except for Jesus, it’s unhealthy.  The Bible says in Proverbs 25:28 that A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls. (ESV)  If was a city, I wouldn’t want to be without walls.  I would want strong walls that would serve as a source of protection for my family.
