Fasting: Another Perspective

A Different Kind of Fasting
Let us fast from judging others…
nd feast on Christ dwelling in each.
Let us fast from seeing differences
And feast on the Spirit in all life.
Let us fast from apparent darkness…
And feast on the reality of Light.
Let us fast from the thoughts of illness…
And feast on the healing power of God.
Let us fast from words that pollute…
And feast of the phrases that support and affirm.
Let us fast from discontent…
And feast on gratitude.
Lets us fast from worry…
And feast on trust in God’s care.
Let us fast from complaining…
And feast on appreciation.
Let us fast from hostility…
And feast on non-violence.
Let us fast from bitterness…
And feast on forgiveness.
Let us fast from self-concern…
And feast on compassion for others.
Let us fast from discouragement…
And feast on hope.
Let us fast from suspiciousness…
And feast on trustful relationships.
Let us fast from shadows of injustice…
And feast on the Son of Justice, Jesus Christ.
