"God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted"
As I shared yesterday, one of my focuses is praying for restoration for me, my family and my close friends. This year, the past few years, this season has been rough and we lost loved ones, positions, relationships, our good health, and more. So I'm praying for restoration of health, restoration of joy, restoration of peace, restoration of stability, restoration of finances. God, we need emotional restoration, spiritual restoration, physical restoration, and mental restoration. We weren't ALWAYS here. It's time to return to who we were and I'm praying that God will help us get there. But... Until we get there, we have to be honest in our journeys. It's okay to mourn for where we are and what we've been through and to be transparent about that!

This year, we are fasting for 21 Days (March 13 -April 2). This year our scriptural focus is Ephesians 1:3-12. This year, I am seeking restoration, peace, and stability for me and my family (including those who are like family to me). Thus restoration includes me getting back to reading my Bible and devotions daily and meeting my minimum steps. At the end of this fast, I want to be stronger in my prayer life and focused on God's will for my life. I also want and need to feel healthier. This post is brief, but I have to return to blogging and I have to write through it!
