Are you just loving Brianna's series of posts about fasting? They are real and honest, make us chuckle, bring tears to our eyes, and challenge us to do the hard thing of fasting because the reward is worth it! As she says today, "Fasting will challenge us to worship before an audience of One and hide from any worldly praise we might seek."
Today our in-person and Zoom groups begin for our Hungry series, which explores the spiritual discipline of fasting. Today Brianna Hines shares a beautiful post about taking a regular break from the things of this world in order to be realigned to the heart of God. Don't miss reading or listening to her words and then join us at 9:30 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. for a sweet time together.
Brianna Hines introduces us to the spiritual discipline of fasting with a testimony about how food, not the Lord, served as her main source of security and comfort for most her life. She shares how fasting is a tool that God has been using over the last couple years to break the chains of slavery to her stomach. You won't want to miss this real, vulnerable, and relatable post today at ufcwomen.blog.
This January UFC Women will focus on the specific spiritual discipline of fasting. We will look at what the Bible has to say about it and how generations of believers have pursued this practice of denying self for the glory of the Father. We will compare biblical fasting to that of the world, and open a discussion about this often neglected spiritual discipline and how it can provide an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to work in us in a way that we may never have allowed Him to before.
