Testimony from Surrender Faster Cherie

I was a part of Cycle 3 that just finished, and I’m so grateful and thankful to have participated! I surrendered TV watching and replaced that time with scripture and devotional reading and prayer. I was (and still am) DESPERATE to hear from God, to know His will, because I’ve felt like I’ve been flailing along, stuck in a rut, disappointed, and frustrated with doing things under my own power, instead of really REALLY hearing from God. I felt like God was silent. I realized that He wasn’t silent; I was drowning out His voice with the “noise” of mindless TV watching and not focusing on reading and learning His Word. I feel BLESSED and just wanted to THANK YOU for leading us through this fast. I have found that I want to continue my “routine” of prayer/reading/scripture/meditation and continue surrendering EVERYTHING to Him. Now I go straight to The Word when negative thoughts creep in and discouragement knocks on my door (instead of wallowing in discouragement).

I want to keep surrendering and fasting! I now feel like surrendering a LONG LIST of things/behaviors: mindless shopping/spending, bad foods, lack of sleep, envy, and most of all, people-pleasing. I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew! But I feel like this fast CHANGED ME, and I’m so grateful. I look forward to the next cycle this December!
