A spiritual fast to bring joy at Christmas
We hear all the time that Christmas is one of the most stressful times of the year. Moreover, while it should be a time a thanks, we often find ourselves complaining.
To help bring joy to your home this Christmas, Cornerstone would like to challenge you to a 25 Day Christmas Fast. Instead of fasting from food, we challenge you to fast from complaining. Instead of focusing on some diet, we challenge you to focus on giving thanks to God each day.
Here is how it will work:
First, if you register to be a part of our 25 Day Christmas Fast, we challenge you to go the whole week without complaining. If you make it all week without complaining, we will celebrate with you. We are on the honor system here so we will trust you to be a fair judge of your week. (PS. If you have family at home, I'm sure they would be glad to remind you of your commitment. :)
Second, and this is very important! The only way you will be successful in your goal is to practice giving thanks. To help you be successful, we ask you to start a journal and write down five things every morning that you are thankful for and then before you go to bed, read that list again as part of your bedtime prayers. We will track your progress and celebrate your success. Don't worry, we won't ask you to share what you have written, but we hope some may want to share how this 25 Day Christmas Fast changes your life.
Finally, we hope that you will put some thought into this and try not to repeat the same list every day. The more time you give this, the more thankful, you will become.
