why fast?

Today I have found myself struggling with the fast.  I woke up excited about the idea of getting creative with Daniel fast-friendly football food and then realized that I had to drive my oldest to a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for her high-school crew club.  With no time to dig into the Bible or drop to my knees, I suddenly had two dozen circles of sin sitting on my kitchen counter.  How nicely they would go with a hot cup of coffee….
In a desperate attempt to avoid cooking up some bacon and eggs and making myself a feast, I went to my room and began looking for fasting encouragement.  I’ve read a ton today, but the devotion at the following link gave me the most motivation.

Nice to know that I’m not the only sinner around with “hell in my heart”.
