How to Fast and Feast during Lent



~1~
FAST from doing it my way; FEAST on obedience to God.

~2~
FAST from mindlessness; FEAST on mindfulness of God's presence.

~3~
FAST from judging others; FAST on seeing Christ in them.

~4~
FAST from being in control; FEAST on obeying those who are.

~5~
FAST from busyness; FEAST on stillness by turning to God throughout the day.

~6~
FAST from running away; FEAST on stability

~7~
FAST from monotony of the everyday; FEAST on the sacredness of the ordinary
