Day 18 – Daniel Fast

Today I’ve been thinking about something I read in Joyce Meyer’s book – Power Thoughts “Success begins with a thought”.  I find that statement very motivating!  I believe that getting to day 18 of the Daniel Fast has come with the practice of thinking and believing that I could really do it (with God’s Grace of course).
