Often we need to slow down & focus. We live in a society defined by hurry. However, hurry is not just a disordered schedule, hurry is a disordered heart. Fasting & Solitude help bring our focus back on God instead of the things of this world.
Fasting is the Spiritual Discipline of denying our appetite to focus on God. Solitude is fasting from people for a prescribed time to connect with God and replenish the soul. Solitude isnʼt always necessary or possible, but there are times to eliminate the voices of the world in order to hear undistracted the voice of God.
