I've joined a Facebook group called 30 Days of Praise. It was started by a friend who posted a note on her profile wall about doing starting the New Year with a cleansing detox called The Daniel Fast. Many of her Facebook friends expressed interest in learning more, so she decided to create a group where women can come together with the goal of cleansing both body and soul. She has invited many of us to join her to create an environment of encouragement and support. It isn't just for women who want to do The Daniel Fast, but for those who want to start the New Year seeking God in prayer, fasting, and lifestyle changes that promote a focus on praise and thanksgiving. I personally am not prepared to cut so much out of my diet right now, so I'm making one dietary change (cutting out added white sugar) and one soul change (waking up early enough in the morning to take a walk and do an hour or two of writing before my family is ready for breakfast).
- Complaining and arguing prevent us from being pure and blameless
- Complaining and arguing are NOT character traits found in children of God
- Complaining and arguing cast a shadow on our testimony
