There is time to fast and time to feast


"Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast.
But the days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day."  (Mark 2: 19 - 20) 

The Holy Spirit is the free gift of God.  The gift is given to us not because we are holy but to make us holy.  Receive joyfully what has been given from the bounty of the Father.  You grieve the Holy Spirit when you constantly whine about your unworthiness, your lack of ideas, strength, money, etc.  Trust completely in the Holy Spirit and He will direct your path.  He will tell you the moment to fast. There is time for everything. A time to fast and a time to feast.

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.  Amen.
