What Is The Habit Fast?

You guys! Fasting is hard. Honestly, I had never totally, completely, heart-all-in fasted for 40 days before! Seriously, this was my first one this year. I did a Sugar Fast. It was hard. So hard. I love sugar, a lot. But I love Jesus more. And I knew I was ADDICTED to sugar. So I decided to try it with some friends...holy camoly I had over 200 people join me. I knew we were on to something.  Here's what I have learned.

  • There is something so powerful about doing a hard thing in a community. We encourage each other, cheer for each other, and offer kindness in this journey.

  • Fasting is different from a diet. For a diet, you just go without. Fasting is about filling yourself with Jesus. It is trying to draw close to Jesus and ask HIM to show up for you to do this hard thing. We lean into the strength of Jesus, not ourselves (truly I would have failed in my own strength.)

  • I want to do this again! So I wrote the 40 Day Habit Fast guide to give us the opportunity before the 40 days of Easter to give up a habit - any habit - you choose! We will journey with Jesus to the cross and really dive into looking at this power that Jesus has. He displayed it all the way to the cross - in some surprising ways.

  • Even if you mess up, you can still jump back in and keep going. You don't have to start over. You don't have to quit and feel like a failure. Just. Keep. Going. 

  • We can do hard things - with Jesus. All things are possible with Jesus. Let's Do This!
