Sooooooo I meant to do this little series back in May buuuuut then I forgot… soooooo I’m reposting the the first one today and will finish it for the next few Wednesdays!!!!
Random thought from Monday: Well that actual thought that was going to be a PS on Monday's is actually at the end of this post...cuz I was going to have to explain ALL your about to read to give that ONE last thought!!! Hee, hee!!!! Everyone thinks that the Daniel Fast is a veggies diet buuuuuuuuut if you really want to be accurate, the Bible says he ate water and pulse...WAAAAAIIIIT....
WHAT IS PULSE???????????????
"Did you know???..."
and I looked up pulse and its basically like beans...
According to Webster's dictionary a pulse plant is: the edible seeds of various crops (such as peas, beans, or lentils) of the legume familyalso : a plant yielding pulseAccording to the KJV Bible Dictionary Pulse is: Bean or seed used for food.
"Then said Daniel to Melzar, whom the prince of the eunuchs had set over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us PULSE to eat, and water to drink. Then let our countenances be looked upon before thee, and the countenance of the children that eat of the portion of the king's meat: and as thou seest, deal with thy servants." ( Daniel 1:11-13 )
There are ACTUALLY other Bible versions that say that pulse means vegetables or roots soooo that must be where most people decide to base the Daniel fast off of...of course because its EASIER, buuuuuuuuuuut Webster annnnnnnnnnnd THE KJV Bible dictionary are in a agreement for the definition of PULSE!!! Jus sayin!!! ;)
Have you everrrr done the Daniel Fast and actually GAINED weight??? Your not alone!!! I thought I was THE ONLY PERSON IN THE WHOLE WORLD to do this buuuuuuuuuuuuuut a brother at my church was telling me once that he had gained weight during the Daniel Fast!!!! I was liiiiiike whaaaaaat???? ME TOO!!! He was like, yeah, I found out that four baked potatoes in one day are still TOO MANY!!!! I was liiiiiiiiiike, weeeeeeeeeeeeelllll I FOUND OUT that 1 jar of unsalted, raw almond butter...is STILL TOO MANY...even withOUT the salt and raw!!! Who'da known such a thang???? BAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!
sooooo IF you really want to accurately do the Daniel Fast, eat nothing buuuuuuut beans for 21 days... you will probably FOR SURE lose weight...you may have a few other issues 💨...buuuuuuuut weight loss won't be one of them!!! Hee, hee!!! ;)
"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)

MONDAY'S THOUGHT: annnnnnnd that leaves me with ONE LAST THOUGHT, that gave me another thought, ...MAYBE the PULSE Daniel was eating was coffee beans and he was drinking lots of coffee...you know beans and water =COFFEE....thats WHY he had sooooooo much energy and liiiiiiike MAYBE they were even chocolate covered coffee beans...heeeeeeeey chocolate covered coffee beans are like DOUBLE DANIEL FAST because chocolate is ALSO a bean...stay tuned to NEXT WEDNESDAY to find out IF Daniel was eating chocolate covered coffee beans during his Daniel Fast!!! And don't get all overly spiritual on me trying to explain this...just enjoy the ride!!! :))))
