Chapter 28
Truly living even in hunger

Joe wakes up around 9:00am, it felt good to sleep in. He made it through all 7 days of the fast and the Lord has shown him some pretty awesome things. Such as how he can do something that he has never attempted to do or even desired to do and that was to go without food, not just for one meal or even one day but a whole week and the Lord gave him one deliverance after another to overcome the temptation. A verse came to Joe's mind, "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." "Ah yes, 1 Corinthians 10:13, that's a good one" was going on in his head.

He gets up and Cindy is gone, she left a note on the table telling Joe that she got a call from Judy and Judy wanted to see her desparately so she gets dressed and drives over there. Joe is thinking about his past relationship with Cindy before he married her and all the things that went on in his mind so he can imagine how Judy feels right now. Joe goes on into the kitchen and he breaks his fast with a tall glass of orange juice, thanking the Father God for his mercy and his love. He lifts up the situation that Cindy has gone into for the day. He prays a special prayer for Judy that she would stop going the way of the world and turn to a God who loves her more than she could ever imagine. Joe also lifts up Harry, Judy's ex-live in or boyfriend or whatever you want to call him. So many strange things go on down here on planet earth, a land full of rebellion against the one true God. People who are satisfied or maybe partially satisified living in misery, rebellion, hatred, greed, lust, fear, on and on the list can go, and they turn to just about anything or everything but God. The one thing that they need to have life, real life and yet they associate him with religion and all the drugs, the sex, the meditation, the garbage that they get into is the real religious stuff. Religion by the world's definition is the worship of God or gods so everyone is religious by that definition and all who have a god of their own making are super religious and all do have some sort of god but the God of the bible came to give us the highest form of life possible.

Cindy comes in about 4:30pm and she shares some of her day at Judy's with Joe. She tells him that a lot is going on in her life and she needs prayer big time at this point and time in her life. Cindy then tells him that she will fix him something good to break the fast. Joe says, "Yummm!" A couple minutes later, Joe yells at Cindy in the bathroom, "I will be back within the hour!" and he takes off before she asks him where is he going.
