Fasting



I came across an intriguing quote about fasting–in line with this lenten season.

“When I think of fasting, I would define it as abstaining from anything that fills the space inside us that God longs to occupy. Any idols can be fodder for fasting: TV, e-mail, food. The heart of a fast is stepping back from life as it is and conceiving life as it could be.” Heather Webb (found in the book To Be Told by Dan Allender)

Worthy of thought and practice. Let’s prepare our hearts to be fully occupied by the King.
