(specifically, fasting from food here)
it reminds us that we are human. not the Savior, not super-human, not invincible, but human.
it is a physical reminder, through stomach pangs, of the need to be filled that can be beautifully turned, for the day, to a constant physical reminder of our need for Jesus.
it reminds us of our dependence, and of His great faithfulness to provide our needs, and to fill us. it reminds me that i am dust.
it is a good practice to know what it means to be in hunger, i think. if even for a day.
it was suuuuuper difficult for me to pick just one. so you should just listen to the whole album. and then again.
