Waking up in the morning and starting the day,
I felt a zest of excitement for the fast I will do today.
Unfortunately, the enthusiasm and eagerness quickly passed,
when offers of delicious food crippled me like a cast.
It was then I remembered the reason for today’s food break;
to deprive myself so that His love may not be proved fake.
I struggled through the day wondering if I had what it take,
but God’s strength pushes me through all the pains and aches.
Every time my stomach growls and snarls from hunger,
I will close my eyes and say a quick, simple prayer.
I prayed for the kids who are not only endangered,
but who also need to know the love of our Savior.
In addition I prayed for re:ACTS ministries,
which only purpose is to serve the needy.
They show people God’s grace and glory,
giving them hope in a world filled with treachery.
