The Church Girl's Guide to Fasting Day 7: God Are you There?

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."- Psalms 46:1

    Over the past few days life has really been showing me how life can happen. Even throughout the fast, I asked God, "are you really there?". When we have those thoughts and those feelings, we must step back and really seek God not to fix the problem but to understand his will for our lives. I began to realize that God is my strength and my fortress. He is my redeemer and has always been faithful to me! He has always provided for me and had created doors for me that could not be shut my man or the devil himself! 

"The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold" -Psalm 18:2

    We may have those times when we feel alone and unwanted. But God is always there. In your time of depression or feelings of loneliness remember that God will never leave your nor forsake you. Remember that God may have wanted you alone to avoid distractions or even remove people from your life that you would not have let go if it were not for God himself. You may be alone but with God you will never be lonely!
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” 
-Deuteronomy 31:8

God Bless


Father today I pray for the person who feels lonely. I ask you today to touch their hearts and give them an understanding of  what your will is for them. Guard their hearts Lord and allow them to know with your they will never be lonely. Father I thank you for the deliverance of depression or doubt in their lives because you are a God of help and deliverance. Open the eyes of their hearts Lord so that they may live in your purpose.
