Road Trip personal thoughts!
I realize completely that I can't do this! That is the honest truth! I have a terrible track record when it comes to fasting and diets! I have never stuck on a diet for more than maybe 3 days! So… as I was praying this morning, I recognized that I needed God; that is for sure because without Him, His strength and His will power…this is a bust! I also realized I needed my friends and family to be accountable to so I wrote up a blog post and asked them to join me on this Road Trip God Adventure: Grow 2 Go! I filed it under blog post 09/Grow 2 Go and posted it at my blog this morning that was sitting at a count number of 458. So I am hoping huge that the Holy Spirit will convince people to come with me on this 2009 Road Trip!

Road Trip personal thoughts of Kimberlymac!
I am thinking at 12:33 am that I can't do this for seven days! Then I hear God's still small voice directing me, teaching me and He shares with me that He wants me to learn a moment by moment balance, of being positioned in His Presence as I am in my situation, but not of it, being found in Him! I can do all things through Jesus Who strengthens me. I can, I will! Jesus wants me to learn a moment to moment dependence upon Him where I endure through the moment; not looking ahead at the impossibility of my future, but at now, the possibility of His Presence in me…right now! Right now, I have His strength, His will power and His purposes for good are at work in me. I need to stop looking ahead for possibility and see it right here with me! Yes I do! I need to see Jesus now and learn to live in the heavenly hindsight more than I do the dread of foresight. Jesus make it so in me! AMEN!
3:38 pm! The funny thing is that I really don't think I can do this!! But I know, I know the Lord wants me to. So I am learning another really cool thing about the Lord. That which He asks, He provides for. I can think a lot of things that really stir up my surface emotions, but I can truly know something that settles me deeper!! Jesus I am digging deeper!
Road Trip ramah: Spiritual Nourishment 4 strength!
My Child, this ramah word is for your spiritual food the next seven days. Eat of it slowly and let each bite nourish your body, soul, spirit, will and mind!
God Has Given Us New Life Through Christ
1 You were living in your sins and lawless ways. But in fact you were dead. 2 You used to live as sinners when you followed the ways of this world. You served the one who rules over the spiritual forces of evil. He is the spirit who is now at work in those who don't obey God. 3 At one time we all lived among them. We tried to satisfy what our sinful nature wanted to do. We followed its longings and thoughts. God was angry with us and everyone else because of the kind of people we were. 4 But God loves us deeply. He is full of mercy. 5 So he gave us new life because of what Christ has done. He gave us life even when we were dead in sin. God's grace has saved you. 6 God raised us up with Christ. He has seated us with him in his heavenly kingdom because we belong to Christ Jesus. 7 He has done it to show the riches of his grace for all time to come. His grace can't be compared with anything else. He has shown it by being kind to us because of what Christ Jesus has done. 8 God's grace has saved you because of your faith in Christ. Your salvation doesn't come from anything you do. It is God's gift. 9 It is not based on anything you have done. No one can brag about earning it. 10 God made us. He created us to belong to Christ Jesus. Now we can do good things. Long ago God prepared them for us to do.
God's New Family
11 You who are not Jews by birth, here is what I want you to remember. You are called "uncircumcised" by those who call themselves "circumcised." But they have only been circumcised in their bodies by human hands. 12 Before you believed in Christ, you were separated from him. You were not considered to be citizens of Israel. You were not included in what the covenants promised. You were without hope and without God in the world. 13 At one time you were far away from God. But now you belong to Christ Jesus. He spilled his blood for you. That has brought you near to God. 14 Christ himself is our peace. He has made Jews and non-Jews into one group of people. He has destroyed the hatred that was like a wall between us. 15 Through his body on the cross, Christ put an end to the law with all its commands and rules. He wanted to create one new group of people out of the two. He wanted to make peace between them. 16 He planned to bring both of them as one body back to God because of the cross. Christ put their hatred to death on that cross. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away. He also preached peace to those who were near. 18 Through Christ we both come to the Father by the power of one Holy Spirit. 19 So you are no longer strangers and outsiders. You are citizens together with God's people. You are members of God's family. 20 You are a building that is built on the apostles and prophets. They are the foundation. Christ Jesus himself is the most important stone in the building. 21 The whole building is held together by him. It rises to become a holy temple because it belongs to the Lord. 22 And because you belong to him, you too are being built together. You are being made into a house where God lives through his Spirit.

In the past you were spiritually dead because of your sins and the things you did against God.2 Yes, in the past you lived the way the world lives, following the ruler of the evil powers that are above the earth. That same spirit is now working in those who refuse to obey God. 3 In the past all of us lived like them, trying to please our sinful selves and doing all the things our bodies and minds wanted. We should have suffered God's anger because we were sinful by nature. We were the same as all other people.
Road Trip personal thoughts of Kimberlymac!
What a beautiful picture of God's mercy. We should have... those three words really struck my heart today…very hard! We should have... suffered God's anger... BUT... because of His Mercy... we did not! We should have stayed separated from God… We should have… BUT… because of the Father God's mercy, I today am in a personal relationship with my Father God, through Jesus by His Holy Spirit. I am so blessed that because of Jesus, my sinful nature does not keep me from the sweet fellowship I have with My Father God. We should have…. Except for MERCY! HMMMMMMM! My 7 day fast does totally relate to Mercy, because I am thinking a good thought of "His Mercy Is New Every Morning" and this is a one day at a time thing. Growing 2 Go! I am hoping that this 7 day "spiritual fast" will cleanse my body of all toxins, my soul of all worldly desires, my will of what I want and my spirit of everything and all that does not reflect God's Glory! So Be It… We should have… except for HIS MERCY! Jesus! AMEN!
Day Two… Is now a Heavenly Hindsight! Thank You Jesus!
