Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Cindy Jacobs. She said: “A physical body disciplined through fasting is a sign of a disciplined spiritual life.”
Our fasting devotional today is titled “HOW TO FINISH YOUR FAST IN A HEALTHY WAY” (PART 3) from Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ.
Here is a schedule for breaking your fast on the 7th and 8th day:
5 o’clock as you end your 7th day of the fast
Peal four or five medium-sized tomatoes – cut them up, bring them to a boil and then turn off the heat. When they are cool enough to eat, have as many as you desire.
Morning of the 8th day
-Salad of grated carrots and grated cabbage, with half an orange squeezed over it.
-Bowl of steamed greens and pealed tomatoes (spinach, Swiss chard, or mustard greens). Bring the greens to a boil, then turn off the heat.
-You may eat two slices of 100 percent whole-wheat bread, which has been toasted until it is thoroughly dry-this is called “Melba toast.” After it has been cooled, the toast should be so dry that it would powder if you squeezed it in the palm of your hand. As I have stated, this first food should be in the morning.
-During the day, you may have all the distilled water you wish to drink.
-For dinner, you may have a salad of grated carrots, chopped celery and cabbage, with orange juice for dressing. This will be followed by two cooked vegetables, one such as spinach, kale, shard, or mustard greens, and one such as string beans, carrots, steamed celery, okra, or squash. You may have two pieces of whole-grain “Melba toast.” These meals are not to contain oils of any kind.
