Outcome of the Fast

Today is the last day of my fast. Coming into it, I had goals. I was going to pray for our ministry and the book that I am writing to be successful and minister to people. These sound good because they can further the gospel of Jesus, blah, blah, blah. Here's the thing. Since I've begun the fast, I have barely thought about any of these things. Before fasting, I was obsessed with them. Now, I realize how self seeking I was coming into this. I was going to get the Lord's attention by fasting so that He would bless me. Instead, He got my attention and all I care about is Him. With that has come joy and peace, which is better than all the success in the world!
