When teaching kids how to catch grounders in baseball, we teach them to charge the ball. In other words, if a ground ball is coming to you, go and get it. If you charge the ball, it puts you in better position to catch the ball. Don't wait for it to come to you. If you don't play the ball, it will play you.
Where are you not charging the ball? If you have joined the Daniel Fast, are you letting the Fast play you? Are you focused on what you'd like to eat, rather than on what God has in store for you? One thing I've realized is how controlled we really are. If I don't get what I want, I'm frustrated and irritable.
Don't let the Fast play you. Enjoy the opportunity to join with God and others through this time. See the possibilities of what God can do through us. Charge The Ball!
