Practical Helps For Fasting

I would like to share two links on practical helps for fasting. 

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding please do NOT ‘fast’ food! 

You can certainly ‘fast’ media, sweets, words, etc.  For many years I desired to fast food, but I was either pregnant or breastfeeding.  I wasted many years lamenting (complaining and grumbling, really) because I couldn’t fast.  Please don’t do the same.  Embrace the beautiful season you are in and know that the Lord is far more interested in your heart being devoted to Him than you ‘showing’ your devotion through fasting.

Michelle, I've found, for myself, that it is easier to fast food than media...probably because it is all around and often fills idle time. Fasting media is quiet, and gives God opportunity to speak and us to listen. Blessings to you this week. ~ Ruth

I agree, Ruth, so much easier to go without food as opposed to feeding the flesh. I wish I had realized that all those years. 'The grass is always greener . . ' ;-)
Have an awesome week, friend.
