Thoughts during Lent

A different approach to fasting;

Fasts have a tendency to be oriented towards things like giving up one's favourite food,drink,smoke ,television etc etc.But there are many other ways I can welcome Lord's healing and loving touch in my life.

Fast from anger and hatred .
Lets give my near and dear ones an extra dose of love everyday.Let me give
my unloved ones double dose of love.

Fast from judging others.
before making any judgement s lets recall how my Beloved God
overlooks my faults and brokenness.

Fast from discouragement.
Hold on to God's promise that He has a perfect plan for each one of us.

Fast from complaining.
when I find myself about to complain ,now I close my eyes and recall some
of the little moments of joy my Beloved has given me.


Fast from bitterness and resentment.
I must keep on forgiving those who may have hurt me in the journey of my life and
keep forgetting the pain they have caused me.

Fast from spending money .
Try to reduce my spending by at least twenty percent and give those savings to the needy.
