My fasting reflections

So I ended up fasting last Friday, missed breaky and lunch and just had something very small for dinner. Wasn't because I couldn't resist the hunger, but just wanted to not be starting Sat morn with a completely empty stomach.

It's kinda funny, cos when I fast, I don't actually find it that spiritually helpful at all, I often just find myself hungry and thinking too much about food. I just find myself generally annoyed. I do think a bit about God a bit, but not as much I'd envisaged.

But it always seems that afterwards, like in the couple of days after, I seem to be more aware of what's going on for me God wise. It's really hard to explain, but I often just find myself more spiritually switched on.

I just really like it as a way of placing God as my number one priority, and I think in an age where there's so much hunger, it causes me to reflect on those issues as well.

So in summary, I don't really know why, but it's a helpful practice for me and one I plan to continue.

I have never really gotten into Fasting. I have done it a few times with 40 hour famine and the like, but that's the extent of it. I should give it a shot again at some stage. It's great that you've got this way of becoming spiritually switched on a bit more. I wish there was a way I could do that, but there is not, I either am or aren't, and there generally isn't much I can do about it. Annoying. Stupid.
