Fasting - Part I
Breaking Through a Plateau • 55m
Fasting is an intriguing, Biblical concept, but does it still apply to us today? What does it really mean to fast, how hard is it, and how does it help you to find Christ? In this episode, you will meet two women who have fasted for several days, resulting in lost weight, more energy and more joy. It is not as hard as you might think; it is actually much harder and more painful to be overweight and to overeat. Gwen Shamblin will share the deep symbolism behind fasting and the practical information on what it means to fast, including easy-to-understand information about how it affects your metabolism. You will learn what it feels like, what is involved with making that choice and how to cling to God through the self-denial. Not only does this special experience help you to commune with Christ by learning how to set your mind on him, but you will also be set free from a focus on food and gain better health!
Special Guests: Regina Smith, Karen Perera, and Candace Anger
