    Good morning,

    I want to do the Surrender Fast again, but I purchased the book off of iTunes and it seems like there are days missing from the book. Has anyone else experienced that problem?

    Blessings! Rochelle Barnes

    …training is apart of the journey…

    • Hello Rochelle, so glad you are joining us again! The version of the Surrender Fast that you have from iTunes is the original version that does not have the Personal Reflections pages for the weekend. But that is all that is missing. Fortunately, the newest version of the book is now available in every ebook format (as of the last month of so).

      When did you order your copy? I will check with iTunes to make sure they have the latest version.

      Again, welcome abroad! You won’t want to miss Cycle 5’s (Feb 18 – Mar 29) teaching on contentment because today matters!!!

    Greetings Dr. Celeste, I know that all is well with you–Praise God! I think about my testimony, and how God released me from my pain on Wednesday, January 9, 2013; and how he lead me to your ministry to be healed on that day. I will be a part of Surrender for as long as God says, and I will forever continue daily to serve Him, and stay out of His way; even when I get in the way. God has been blessing me so much with favor after favor.

    This is the first time I’ve been able to be a “doer of God’s Word” without fear, doubt, hesitation, or procrastination (I fasted and surrendered procrastination from my life). I have made flyers, and going to reserve a library meeting room to speak to people about health, and sell my product. AND, I will be reserving more rooms, and speaking to others about the Freedom School I will begin. I will begin a Freedom School, and I will have ALL that God says I desire in my heart. AND, I know from the bottom of my heart that He supplies all of my needs! NOT MAN!! Such victory I have in Jesus!

    “There Ain’t No Stopping Me Now,” even with the trials and tribulations, and distractions…LOL. I have so much joy; I can feel it in my bones. My spirit is overjoyed with love. God says, to “Consider it pure joy, my brothers (my sisters), whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4, The Student Bible, NIV. There is joy in the results of the trials we face, not in the trials themselves.

    Surrender Family, the book of James has been an empowering book for me during the Surrender Fast and has given me courage, more and more each day to become a “doer” of His Word. Check out James 3:13-18:

    “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such ‘wisdom’ does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil. For where you have envy selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in pace raise a harvest of righteousness.”

    Surrender Family, keep reading that scripture and watch what God does in your life.

    Life is a present, and is present in the presence of God–you couldn’t ask for a better future!!

    I look forward to Cycle 5–God is not through with me yet!

    Thank you Dr. Celeste, and everyone enjoy God’s Continued Blessings!!

    Peace and God’s Love

  3. Thank you for sharing Krisann! And thank you for sharing the scripture from James 3:13-18. This went right along with my devotions for this morning. Thanks for allow God to use you!!! Great things, Girl! Greatness is upon you now. When God said, “Let me do a new thing” you said, “Yes” and look what He has done. I look forward to continuing this journey with you and the entire Surrender Family!!! Be blessed.
