Day 15 - February 10th, 2019 - Autumn

During this season of fasting, I have set my intention to give God control of my life. I tend to have a tight hold on controlling my life and working my butt off to try to succeed. When I do succeed I remember how hard I worked and am proud of myself for my accomplishment. I tend to forget that God is the one that blessed me with the abilities to succeed. However, when I live this life, I live in a constant state of worry. The pressure to be perfect is a lot to place on an imperfect person. This time of fasting has been a time to give Jesus (the only perfect person) control of my life. I have allowed my imperfections and weaknesses to allow "God's power to be made perfect in my weakness" (2 Corinthians 12:9). When I am tired and feel unproductive during my fast, I am reminded of my imperfections and weakness, and I am reminded to trust God.
