Get your pen and journal ready, Stovall Weems wants to share with you how to become awake to God in his book Awakening. As he says several times in the book, passion and emotion are supposed to be normal in Christian living, not the exception. Being passionate is possible if you really want it, and if you really want it you’ll look for it. The author takes you through the foundation steps to being awake to God as well as how to fast (& pray) effectively. Included at the back of the book is a section on different kinds of fasts (for those who can’t partake in a food fast) and a 21 day study.
Originally, I intended to read through the book while doing the 21 day fast. I ended up reading the book in one sitting though and will go through it again when I feel led to fast. One of the things I liked about this book was the stories from people who’ve done the 21 day fast and had God move in their lives. If you’ve ever gone through a period of your life where you don’t feel close to God, or you’re going through one now, I highly recommend reading this book! (And if you feel led after or during reading, the fast as well.)
