Two days before I started my fast, I made my list. It was a list of undefined, incomplete, unfinished issues in my world. At first I was thinking that it would be important to track these things to be able to record any changes at the end of my 31 days. BUT that isn’t the purpose of this fast. It’s purpose is to be able to verbalize what I have learned, not list everything I want to change.
This has been one a difficult lessons for me to learn: Accepting life and changing what is within my power to change. I’m an “I can fix anything” kind of person.
“Thou hast made us for thyself, and our souls are restless until they find their rest in thee.” ~ Augustine
Life is not about us; what we have or what we want or even what we hope for. We were created for God and until we come to that realization, nothing will ever be enough. It is this truth that allows me to be completely satisfied.
