Lent…a time of fasting and feasting

Lent…a time of fasting and feasting

As you consider this season of Lent I invite you to join me in considering this list of things that we could fast from and feast on during lent. I pray you are blessed by this list and in this time of lent. Let us… Fast from worry, and feast on divine order by trusting in God. Fast from complaining, and feast on appreciation. Fast from negatives, and feast on affirmatives. Fast from unrelenting pressures, and feast on unceasing prayer. Fast from hostility, and feast on tenderness. Fast from bitterness, and feast on forgiveness. Fast from self-concern, and feast on the compassion for others. Fast from the shadows of sorrow, and feast on the sunlight of serenity. Fast from idle gossip, and feast on purposeful silence. Fast from judging others, and feast on the Christ within them. Fast from emphasizing differences, and feast on the unity of life. Fast from apparent darkness, and feast on the reality of light. Fast from thoughts of illness, and feast on the healing power of God. Fast from words that pollute, and feast on the phrases that purify. Fast from discontent, and feast on gratitude. Fast from anger, and feast on joy. Fast from personal anxiety, and feast on eternal truth. Fast from discouragement, and feast on hope. Fast from depression, and feast on laughter. Fast from laziness, and feast on enthusiasm. Fast from suspicion, and feast on truth. Fast from thoughts that weaken, and feast on promises that inspire. Fast from problems that overwhelm, and feast on prayer that strengthens.
