Friday Fast: Creating an Opening

Fast from all food and caloric drinks until 5 PM

As you fast, center your attention on using the emptiness of your mealtimes as an opening for God.  If we always fulfill our cravings there is no opportunity for something new to come in.  Today, as you resist those cravings ask God to show you what new things might fulfill the hungers of your life.
