any orthodox bros here
Well folks. Starting today, I'm fasting. Won't be consuming jack shit except water and a few crackers in the evening. Doing this for a month.
That's really intense, are you sure that's healthy?
Fasting for a day or two is one thing
So long as you know what the hell you're doing it's fine. Just make sure to get the proper amount of nutrients and don't do shit which exceeds the caloric intake.
Temptation will be a bitch.
If you can manage a prayer, anyone, I'd appreciate it.
I know fasting is tough
But it's really healthy both spiritually and mentally
Still waiting to see where I'm supposed to be going in this wheel well that is my anti-climactic life.
Hopefully refrain from something as basic as food will clear my head.
I'll ask God to give you guidance and discerning
I've been asking that for about two weeks now along with forgiveness.
Seems like it's been falling on deaf ears.
My faith is never weakened
as my logical assumption is that God exists.
It doesn't make sense (the universe, everything) without intelligent design to me.
But it seems like no matter how hard I try, and pray, never really lines up. I know he's there, I damn well do.
He's worked miracles all around me, not necessarily to me,
but everywhere that I can see.
I feel him.
But I hear nothing.
God is good, and God is God. He has his own ways of doing things that we can't comprehend because his ways are not out ways.
I'm well aware. That's partly what worries me somewhat.
In the same way that God destined his own son to die,
I believe that similar misfortunes may befall peoples across the world to benefit man in the longterm.
However he might have his way
*Thy will be done.*
I have no way of knowing what's going on in your life specifically, so I can't give a satisfying response, but I will say this: you're right his will be done, and we don't understand it or know how it'll work out in the end, and it's terrifying sometimes.
The mystery of God and his ways is part of why we should have a healthy fear of God
You never need to give a satisfying response, Simon, I don't mean to frustrate you. You tell me exactly what I need to hear. You're kind and genuine.
The fact that you give response at all says something.
God love you.
Thanks man, don't worry, you didn't frustrate me. You're a solid guy, and I know God is going to get you through whatever it is you're going through.
Goodnight and God love you too
