Hello Surrender Fasters,
Today is Day 1 of our Global Surrender Fast! I hope you are expecting the unexpected.
For the last eight years, we’ve had the privilege of leading others in the experience of fasting. While some things have stayed the same, some have changed.
My sister Stephanie Davis, who wrote most of what you read on this blog, passed away this summer from cancer. She LOVED posting to this blog and she LOVED the Surrender Fast. She may be gone, but her spirit lives on! I know she’s up in heaven equally excited about the work God will do in and through you in these next 40 days.
Start your day with a dose of Morning Prayer during these 40 days of surrender!
Over the last 8 years, I’ve put in many hours studying natural ways to prevent and treat ailments. My newest study is on essential oils.
Essential oils are the highly concentrated version of the natural oils in plants. It’s the same oil that heals the plant. When used properly, these oils can provide amazing benefits to the human body.
I use oils three ways: aromatic, topical and internally.
Last year my husband was diagnosed diabetic. This diagnosis, along with a previous diagnosis of hypertension, sent him on a quest for good health. In turn, he removed all sugar and processed food from his diet. Within 3 months time he completely reversed his health and with his doctor’s okay, stopped all his medications. Continue reading
On Thursday’s Surrender Morning Prayer (we were on Day 18 of the Global Surrender Fast) I shared several prayers that the Lord gave me that speak life into my situations and not death. So often our prayers are just complaints or us informing God. But if we pray the Word of God we have the ability to change not just our situations, but leave a legacy of prayer that will never die!

How toxic are your household cleaning supplies and beauty products?
They can be quite toxic. Even something as necessary as toothpaste reads, “if ingested contact poison control.”
Am I the only one alarmed by that statement?!
We are unknowingly making ourselves sick. It’s time to make our homes safe for ourselves and our families.
Join me tonight for an eye-opening look at the toxicity levels of our cleaners and beauty products. I’ll also make some suggestions on safe, effective alternatives.
Topic: Surrender Your Toxins – Home Edition
When: Monday, June 22, 2015
Time: 8pm (EST)
Invite your friends and family to join us.
Three lessons I want you to take away from today’s blog:
1. There is POWER in words.
2. God’s PROMISES always come to pass.
3. Where there is VISION God gives PROVISION.
For years I’ve declared that Dr. Celeste Owens Ministries is an “international healing ministry.” Even when we didn’t look like one, I believed.Now my faith is being rewarded. We’ve received our first invitation for international ministry! Continue reading
Hello Surrender Fasters!!!
How’s life after Cycle 9? Well for starters I have to get use to not conducting the Morning Prayer. LOL. I miss it but also welcome the break.
For now, let me encourage you to keep pressing, keep seeking God as He has moved you from a Finished Place to a New Beginning. The testimonies are flooding in praising God for the courage to resign, for allowing them to be fired, for opening opportunities for them to speak, for removing debt, etc.
I don’t know what your New Beginning looks like but I know it is GLORIOUS. I can’t wait to hear what great adventure God opens for your next. Please share your praise report: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although the cycles of fasting have ended we would love to STAY CONNECTED. Here are some UPCOMING EVENTS. Continue reading
Welcome to Week 3 of Cycle 9 of the Surrender Fast! Theme #DivineConnections.
On the Morning Prayer call I shared the story of how I lived through a paint job gone wrong. I had carefully planned the colors for my home but last minute decision to change one of the colors at the paint store left me with regret so overwhelming that the night of the mistake I went to bed at 8pm with my clothes on! I pulled the covers over my head hoping to sleep through the mistake.
However the next day I made the decision to believe it could out for my good and it did. Surprisingly, my “mistake” colors worked perfectly with the colors I had chosen from the beginning. Continue reading
Welcome to Week 2 of the Surrender Fast!
This week as we press forward with our theme “Divine Connections” God is reminding us that no other connections matter more than being connected to Him, His Son, and the Holy Spirit.
One lesson we learned today on the Morning Prayer Call is that when we are fully connected to God in a Finished Place, He opposes our enemies and moves them out of the way. A chapter from Moses’ life confirms this truth.
In Numbers 12:1-16, Moses is being challenged and talked about by his brother and sister who were also part of his leadership team. Thankfully God had Moses’ back and all he had to do was move out of the way while God handled it.
How do you get to the point where God is bulldozing your opposition? I’m glad you asked. Continue reading
Welcome to Day 1 of the Surrender Fast! We are excited about what God will do in and for you in the next 40 days.
The theme for this Cycle 9 is Divine Connections. Did you know that the number 9 symbolizes divine completeness and conveys the meaning of finality? And because this is Cycle 9 God is closing some chapters and moving you on to greater!
We started today with our Morning Prayer Call. If you missed the call you can access the recording HERE via the web or by phone:
