All I wanted was a floral dress, pretty curls in my hair, and a romantic date in the city.
These were my thoughts almost every time summer rolled around and I was STILL single. There’s something about warmer weather that makes you want to fall in love. You know the lyrics:
“Summer time and the living is easy.”
Unfortunately, many women who desire to be married become easy in the summer time as well. Guards are let down as we daydream of all the fun dates we could go on in the city.
I have good news and bad news. I’ll give you the bad news first:
My romantic summer in the city never came. THANK GOD.
Here’s the good news: My romantic summer came when I started to date my husband! Thank God I didn’t waste floral dresses and curls on men who were not the one!
A few weeks ago I asked Steve is he thought women could go the first 30 days of summer fasting from men. He said no. I agreed. When God told me to do my man fast in February 2012 it was in the middle of winter. It wasn’t “pop out” season. However, I’d like to believe if God told me to do it in July I would have been obedient as well.
I asked the ladies in the 30 Day Man Fast Facebook group if they would have done the fast during summer. Most said they would if God was leading them to do it. Some were honest and said they wouldn’t have been interested in doing it in the summer.
Well, the challenge is officially on.
Guard your heart this summer. Some of you have been interested in doing the challenge, but never took the final step. Some of you have even purchased the fast already, but have yet to start. This is your time.
June 20 – July 20
Also, there’s a new 30 Day Man Fast summer edition that can be purchased here. I’ll be posting videos of encouragement throughout the 30 days and the Facebook group is full with over 500 women who are on the same journey as you.
