Steph White lost 25 lbs. and healed swelling in face, ankles and feet.
When I entered into this fast, I did so out of obedience to the Holy Spirit. It started out as mainly a healing fast because the Lord told me that this healing would only come through fasting. I really had no idea how long this would be and actually felt that the Lord had released me from the fast after the water portion of it which would have been day 13, but I felt strongly that I wanted to continue.
The short story about my healing is that when I started this fast I was taking about 20 pills a day, 4 different prescriptions. Now, after completing a 20 day fast, I am on no prescription medications. I have lost 25 pounds. And I have no swelling in my face, ankles or feet as before.
The short story about the self-discipline and spiritual aspects of this fast, is that I lost interest in wasting time in front of the television, I have become much more productive in getting things done that need to be done in other words not procrastinating, I’ve been a procrastinator all my life. No desire to overeat. I have broken my fast, and have reached the point where food is palatable, but not lusted for. I’m eating very small amounts of fruits and vegetables for the next 5 days. I know my physical healing is not complete, but God has assured me that it is in progress and He has heard my cry.
Yesterday, the day I broke my fast, I came to work and on my desk I have a little box of scriptures and I pull a different one out everyday. When I pulled out the card for the day, it gave these two verses. “But I will restore health to you and heal your wounds,” declares the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17 “I am the Lord that Health thee. Exodus 15:26.
I praise God for the experience of this fast and am looking forward to making fasting a regular part of my life. I plan to keep checking in to be an encouragement to others and also I will let you know when I have my full testimony posted. Thanks for all the support and prayers I’ve received over the past 3 weeks. I love you and am praying for you all.
