Fasting is a common practice during Lent. When you fast something (“fasting” means to give something up that is part of your normal routine), it helps you to focus more on God and hear His voice. Some people give up watching TV, playing video games, viewing social media, drinking alcohol, eating sweets, meat, coffee or foregoing one meal a day. The choice is up to you. If you are fasting certain foods and have any medical issues, please consult your health expert first.
- Pray and ask God to help you identify one thing that you could fast during the Lenten season. The goal isn't to pick your worst habit, but choose something that’s safe and achievable for you.
- You can start an examination of your life today by praying Psalm 139:23-24, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.”
