What if a fast is really a feast?
We may be committing to not eat at certain times of the day, or at all. Our favorite show, or that hour we spend tweeting and updating Facebook each night might be set aside for a period of time. Desserts are refused. Computers are shut down. Beds are relinquished early.
It can feel like a sacrifice, an emptying, a taking away.
Yet we gain: time, quiet, resources, and relationship.
You can choose to look at a fast as a negative, focusing on what you’re missing out on. Or, you can view it as a positive, rejoicing in what you’re gaining through the experience.
What are you feasting on today?
