Suggestions for Fasting and Feasting: Fast from discontent; feast on thankfulness. Fast from worry; feast on trust. Fast from anger; feast on patience. Fast from self-concern; feast on compassion for others. Fast from unrelenting pressures; feast on unceasing prayers. Fast from bitterness; feast on forgiveness. Fast from discouragement, feast on hope. Fast from media hype, feast on the honesty of the Bible. Fast from idle gossip; feast on purposeful silence. Fast from problems that overwhelm; feast on prayer that undergirds.



Nutritionist will tell you to fast from carbohydrates and fatty food

Jesus taught us that fasting from self-concern and feasting on compassion is good

We should fast from worry and feast on trusting in the Lord

Fast from worry and feast on hope.  You will find it when you read the word

Fast from idle gossip and feast on purposeful silence for it gives you time to consider what it is you should say

Fast from bitterness and feast on forgiveness and feast on hope and live by it every day

Fast from problems that overwhelm and feast on prayer and love

Fast from discontent and feast on thankfulness and include this gratitude when you pray to your God up above.
