Everything All the Time

Everything All the Time

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

The great Classic Rock Band, “The Eagle’s” penned these words.

“Everything all the time, will surely make you lose your mind.”

Our fascination with more and more is a symptom of our human condition.

We want more, and more, and more, (at least, I do.) (One chocolate chip leads to another and another and…)

It takes a wake up call to remind us, that “everything all the time will surely make you lose your mind”, your health, your relationships, your job and just about everything else that matters.

To counter the “everything all the time” mindset is to take a road less traveled.

The biblical answer to “everything all the time” is fasting.

There are heart fasts such as fasting envy.  There are food fasts such as fasting chocolate.  There are drink fasts, such as fasting beer.  There is bodily appetite fasting such as desserts.  Fasting is simple saying no to someone or something for a finite period.  The result is a finding of your mind, health, and relationships.  Fasting helps you find yourself.  (It is easy to get lost in the shuffle of “everything all the time”.) 

I wrote a short book on fasting, and it is available only on Kindle.  May you find yourself as you give desires up to the Lord.
