The Tuna Challenge

The Tuna Challenge is on! The only person taking up this challenge is ME. I was convicted of the Lord after reading the Book of Daniel that my normal work lunch diet of Tortellini, Vodka sauce, Hot Cherry Peppers, and Red Hot was not conducive in this time period with my prayers to receive wisdom and revelation for increased job performance as Daniel did. I would tend to go into a carb coma for the early afternoon.The Tuna Challenge

I started thinking about a Daniel fast, and although this is fish meat, I think the Lord (and my metabolism) will honor this considerable sacrifice on my part during the 10 hours or so of my working day. My caveat is that the Red Hot stays. It makes this sacrifice bearable, because I would rather fast through lunch than eat dry tuna, and have done the former more often for the past 2 weeks. I have heard this type of “fasting” derided by others as the “I forgot to eat” fast, and am prone to agree that it holds little if any spiritual value.

Red Hot helps me eat tunaYes, this is a bit unusual, and I am going to open up this post for your comments regarding my prior working diet and your speculations concerning the new “improved” diet. This will be observed for the next 40 [working] days, through Holy week of “easter”. You are also welcome to join me on the Tuna Challenge, you do not need to visit the east coast either!

OK, let me have it… whatd’ya think of all this???

  1. How about trying a conventional (biblical) fat one weekend. Whether it be 36 or 48 hours, no food just water. If there is an issue really weighing heavily on you, I can testify from experience, God works in amazing ways after a good fast.

  2. I concur. Currently I’m on the Global Bridegroom Fast (go to http://www.ihop.org) which is the first Monday-Wednesday of the month. Regarding tuna, I felt that in addition to my normal practices, my working lunch diet (the carbs) were the main issue here, and I scaled back accordingly. I think regular, wise, non-legalistic fasting is a necessity on the east coast.
