When I think of fasting I always think how hard it is to not eat between meals or abstaining from meat. But today I read Matthew 9:15, "How can wedding guests be so sad so long as the groom is still with them?" On the surface it seems like an odd question, but once I realized that the groom is Jesus and we are waiting to be with him. We are asked to feel sad if we are apart from Jesus and to long to be with him. Can we fast from things that distract us from him, like tv, computer, phone or other tasks that might keep it hard for us to pray and listen to Gods will? Today I will take time to discover what is really being asked of me. I know that in my "fasting" I will be closer to God and he will help me to be strong in all I do. For "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

    Love your post. When I don't want to go for my walk, I always ask myself, if Jesus called and asked me to go walk with Him today, what would I say?
