no more smelly soup

Oh boy! This picture is no way appealing to me! Ever since I have started the Daniel Fast, I have been eating vegetable soup like crazy. Today I had it for lunch and dinner. I've basically been eating it because it is the fastest and most convenient thing to fix because of running from here to there in between work & church, and Work & babysitting. Plus it's pretty good.
I've decided to take a break though, I'm not going to eat any more of this veggie soup. {sorry soup} I know I have a lot more of different fast friendly foods to fix, so that's what I'm doing! I'm also planning ahead to not stress about it, because that's not what the fast is about!! I'm thinking to myself... "wake up Hilary! Focus on what the fast is really about!" As I was reading Colossians today I ran across this verse to remind me of what my purpose is for this fast, which I feel is to grow more in Him!
Colossians 1:10-12 "And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing good fruit in every work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might, so that you may great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light."

So true! It's so easy to get caught up what we are doing instead of focusing on WHY we are doing it! I love that verse too. It's funny because I read that in my QT yesterday :) Thanks for the encouraging post!
