Cassandra Mack’s Soul Fast 40-Day Challenge
Fasting From Negative Thinking
Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from …Sweating The Small Stuff.
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff and Even Some of The Big Stuff
I wanted to jump into your inbox today to tell you to do your best today to not sweat the small stuff and even a lot of the big stuff because, whenever we sweat the small stuff we tend to become easily frustrated, rattled, annoyed and undone. This blocks the flow of God’s peace from entering into your mind with ease so that you can think with clarity and choose the best response rather than just simply feeding off of other people’s negative energy and reacting in haste. There is a peace that is always available to you, even when life is frustrating and even when people get on your last good nerve.
Here a question for you: What is the one thing that annoys you more than anything else? This is not a trick question! It might be a particular characteristic like rudeness or bossiness, it could be a certain person who just has an uncanny way of pricking at your patience, maybe it’s a situation at your job that’s hard to deal with or even a personality trait that you see within yourself that you do not like. Whatever the one thing is that you’ve pinpointed, remember this…
John 16: 33 says, “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
When life’s little annoyances and even the big problems attempt to take you to a place of negativity, try to remember that in Christ there is peace. Sometimes all you need is a moment for yourself right in the midst of the problem or the annoying thing to center yourself in God and reclaim that peace that is always available to you.
Today is a new day!!!
It’s new because the sun has risen this morning.
It’s new because you have arisen to meet it.
And the risen version of you has the power and capacity to rise to the occasion and handle your business for today.
Remind Yourself: “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” (John 16: 33)
PRAYER: You can pray the scripture from today’s message or you can pray about anything that’s on your heart.
