Day 22 of the Lent Soul Fast With Cassandra Mack

Cassandra Mack’s Soul Fast 40-Day Challenge

Day 22

Fasting From Negative Choices

Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from the choice to… Live In A State of Regret  

Is there anything in your life that you regret doing or not doing? Be Honest! Most people if they are honest have regrets around some of the choices they've made or failed to make. But living in a state of regret is no way to live because it robs you of the present and it creates anxiety around your future. All you can do is move forward and ask yourself this question: Knowing what I now know, what can I do to make the  most of my life now and are there any steps that i can take now to create a better future?

So many people miss out on the best years of their lives because they spend so much time living in a state of regret. They mentally replay all of the missed opportunities, short-sighted choices they made and live in a constant state of hindsight where they are always saying things like… If I could only have a chance to do it all over again. This type of thinking will make you a victim of Woulda, Coulda and Shoulda.  

If we are honest, we all have things in our lives that we wish we would have done differently, but since we cannot go back in time and re-do the parts of our lives that we are not pleased with or undo a choice that we are not proud of, all we can do is learn from our mistakes and do the best we can today.

The book of Philippians tells us to… Forget what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead. The reason why it’s so important for us to embrace the Biblical wisdom of forgetting what lies behind is so that we don’t live our lives from a continual place of regret. We cannot undo the past, but we can press forward toward the future with hope, lessons learned and resilience.

Do the best you can today, because in the end that is all you can do.

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:  “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained. (Philippians 3: 13 – 16)

PRAYER: You can pray the scripture from today’s message or you can pray about anything that’s on your heart.
