Will you join me in fasting and prayer?

As I have watched the events of the past year play out, I have spent much time in prayer. I have spent a few days in fasting and prayer, but I am wondering if we could all get together and spend this next week in fasting and prayer. Would you join me as we humble ourselves and confess our sin – both individual and the collective sins of this nation – and seek God’s face?

Psalm 66.18:

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.”

We all must recognize the fact that we are all in bondage to sin and that sin blocks revival. We must be aware of the basis for our sin – whether it is sinful habits, demonic influences, or being enslaved by our past sins and mistakes. We must recognize it and repent of it. We must recognize, confess and stand in the gap, repenting for the sins committed in this nation while the church has been asleep at the wheel.

I place myself at the top of this list because of my blindness and my self-centered living that has stopped me from seeing and acknowledging just where this country has been heading. I was so focused on the problems in my life that I was completely unaware of what was happening around me.

What I have learned recently is that there is sin that is unseen, unfelt, unacknowledged in me. The Lord has been merciful and gracious in leading me in a journey of discovery that has shown me I had been sinning in things that I did not realize was sin. I have discovered that I have been mislead, deceived, manipulated by the enemy to not see, to not realize where this nation is heading.

God has ‘taken me to school’ where my own sin is concerned and has shown me where I have failed in my responsibility to pray and seek God’s intervention where this nation is concerned. And now I have been feeling a deep need, a deep Spirit-led weight to seek out God’s forgiveness, His will and His desire for the future of this nation.

I am going to fast Monday November 9, Wednesday November 11 and
Friday November 13. I have discovered on previous fasts that it is not a hardship for me to not eat breakfast and lunch if I have a couple cups of coffee throughout the day, but it is much more difficult for me to give up my coffee. So, I am going to refrain from the things that will be hardest for me to give up – coffee and most foods – only eating enough to keep my blood sugar at a healthy level. I will eat normally (which for me recently has been mostly vegetarian) on Tuesday and Thursday.

2 Chronicles 7.13-14:

“13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;  14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

I don’t know if our prayers are too little, too late, but Micah 7 says :

“17 … They shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee. 18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. 19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”

Will you join me in seeking His face and seeking forgiveness for this great country of ours?

Goodbye – for a while, at least

I come to you this morning with some sadness, but also joy, peace and a sense of expectancy.

I started this blog originally because of my writing. I wanted to share my journey into getting my novel published. But as time went on, the purpose of my posts here became more about sharing my faith and less about my book.

I went through a season where the majority of my time was spent in this world of blogging – either writing posts to share or visiting other sites. When family responsibilities took over my time, I set my writing on the back burner to concentrate on those that needed me.

When that season of my life came to an end, it was difficult for me to get back into the daily writing and reading that I had been doing before, knowing I could not use so much of my time here when other things needed my attention, and my site here became stagnant. The past year or so, I have struggled to find things to write, things to share.

And while God has been moving in my life, my ideas for posts have become almost non-existent. He has led me, grown me, and drawn me closer to Him. He has taught me how to pray more effectually; how to listen more deeply, and how to discern His leading. And right now I believe that His leading is telling me I need to once again set my writing aside and concentrate on other things. This has been born out by my current ‘mentor’ during a prayer in which this person spoke the same thoughts that had come to me – word for word.

I can see God moving around me, and am certain that this season of my life must be spent concentrating on those things that He has brought into my focus.

And so it is that I come to this – what will be my last post, for a while at least – possibly for good.

I want to take this time to thank those that I came to know and love as brothers and sisters in Christ.

The first person that came to visit my site was Butch from Wordsmith’s Desk. Thank you Butch for opening up this world to me and exposing me to so many great Christian brothers and sisters who were eager to share their faith with the rest of us.

When I searched out other Christian blogs I met Jeanne from Women’s Window. Jeanne has since gone home to be with the Lord. I miss her communications and I can’t wait to meet her some day face to face.

And then there were these:

PTL2010 – thank you for inviting me to share on your site. Thank you for your encouragement and prayers.

Annie from Freedomborn – Thank you for all your encouragement and wisdom

Pam Ford Davis – It was amazing to find a fellow Syracuse native in this blog world that now lives so far away. I will continue to enjoy your Facebook posts and your Tea Pot Testimony.

Greg from Inspirational Christian Blogs, and Wayne — It has been a while since we really interacted, but the two of you were always so encouraging with my writing – especially my short stories. Thank you, dear brothers, for that and for sharing your faith with us.

Deb from Deb’s Blog and Debbie from CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann – Ours has been a relatively new interaction, but I am blessed to have shared with you and to have received your comments of encouragement.

Pastor J from Lillie-Put and Notes from the Vicarage – thank you – for everything. I am still planning on meeting you on Facebook, but it will more than likely not be as much as what I had originally planned.

Temia, you came to this site and encouraged me and strengthened me in our shared faith. I pray you are doing well and I thank you, dear friend, for taking that first step. I look forward to meeting you in time as we stand before our Savior.

There have been others over the years, many of whom no longer post on their blogs; but will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

In closing I just want to say that I love each of you dearly and look forward to meeting you all face to face one day. May God bless each of you richly.
