(Jeremiah and Theresa)
"Fasting is something that I’ve done since I was a teenager, primarily when I want to hear God more clearly in my life, or when I simply wanted to grow closer to Him. It’s awesome because He always reveals more to me about myself, and about who He is. One time I fasted from food and media for 5 days, and by the end of it I had written down 11 things that God spoke to me in which I know I never would’ve heard with all the noise and distraction that I normally had going on around me. About a year ago my husband, Jeremiah, and I did a partial food and media fast together every Sunday for an entire summer for the purpose of asking God to move and change the circumstances in our lives at the time. By fall season God had answered every single one of the specific things we were praying and petitioning for during the fast, it was amazing! It was truly faith-building to see God do miracles and pour out blessings on us the way that He did. We recently did another partial food and media fast with another couple in our church asking God to heal my husband of all his physical ailments. Jeremiah isn’t healed yet, but we did receive confirmation from the Lord that he will be healed soon! Fasting is something that Jesus modeled for us to do, so it should be part of our mission as believers to do it also!"
