Sample text

I knew problems would surface during this fast, but I didn’t really think they’d be in my marriage. This possibility of a marital roadblock doesn’t really bother me. I know we’ll figure it out together. The most stressful thing continues to be a lack of direction. People need direction and purpose—a calling, as some may label it. We have to figure this out, yet sometimes we just can’t make things happen; the light hasn’t turned green and we aren’t free yet to pursue our purpose and satisfy our calling.

I’m always thinking, if only I had x amount, I’d be okay—then I’d be secure. A couple of weeks ago I found out how much money my friend makes. It was a staggering number, some three times my salary. I immediately slid into envy and jealousy. Ever since then my focus has shifted from the blessings and provision I do have to stuff I can’t afford. I think about the safer, nicer neighborhood. I remember the windows my office doesn’t have. I suppose I like money because all that stuff—the house, the car, the vacation—really promises me freedom.

I was 25. I was four years out of college, freshly married, and I cut the lawn on Saturday mornings. I had just finished seminary, but that certainly didn’t make me Billy Graham, and it definitely didn’t prepare me to fast for 40 days. The only fast I’d known about was blazing down a ridgeline on my mountain bike. I knew little of sacrifice, even less about hunger. But the sprout kept growing; the idea strengthened: Fast for 40 days. God nagged me. He pestered me. He never left me alone—when I jogged and when I showered and when I drove.
