Through parts of our marriage I have had various degrees of fatigue and body pains. A couple of years ago I had significant breakthrough and healing but over this year it has felt like it has been reappearing…I felt challenged to take this to God again and to pray over this area of my life.

40 Days, for me, is a time to stand in freedom and healing but also time to look at practical things that might help in the whole area of wellness and health. I have been reading a helpful book called Healthy and Free by Beni Johnson, visiting the gym and eating healthy. We have had some allowances but mostly have gone full steam. We’ve cut out sugars and processed food and have introduced many new foods that do us good. I have also given up coffee which I realised I rely on to get me through.

In all honesty I have still had fatigue and stress and it’s a busy season for us right now. There have been days when I have wanted to give up the positive changes but I know that God is for me and not against me and that He is helping me to change. God is my Healer, my source of life. It says in Isaiah 40 v 29 “He gives Strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”

Is there an area in your life you need breakthrough in, or to partner with God in it so he can reveal more of who He is to you?
