Day 6 of The Lent Soul Fast With Cassandra Mack

Cassandra Mack’s Soul Fast 40-Day Challenge

Day 6

Fasting From Negative Thinking

Today’s Fast: Today We Are Fasting from the thought that says: … Everybody Else Has A Better Life Than I Do

Today I wanted to jump into your inbox to talk to you about falling into the negative trap of comparing yourself to others. In this media driven society it can be hard not to. 

Let's face it ...Every time we view someone's Facebook post or Instagram selfie, it can seem like everyone else's life is better than ours. But this is simply not true. Always remember that people posts their highlights and special moments. Rarely do people post their low-lights, break-ups, debt collection notices, unpaid bills, family drama, crisis and difficult times.

Comparing yourself to others is one of the quickest paths to misery, because comparison is a thirst that can never be quenched.

So, before you drive yourself crazy obsessing over how much better you believe other people have it than you do, always remember that appearances can be deceiving and everything that glitters ain’t gold. The woman at the office who always looks flawlessly pulled together may be two paychecks away from an eviction notice. The couple who has the corner house, luxury car, and the kid in college may be in a loveless marriage where they tolerate each other, but behind closed doors can’t stand the sight of one another. The beautiful woman who all the other women secretly envy may be so lonely and broken, that she’ll do anything to the point of degradation just to be held for the night.

Here’s the best way to measure your own success and progress: Every effort that you make towards the things you want in life is like making a deposit in your success account. Over time no matter how small your efforts, your account begins to grow and it will begin to pay interest in the form of a completed task, or an accomplished goal.

Learn to run your own race and go at your own pace.  Whatever God has for you, has YOUR NAME ON IT. And in due time you will get where you’re trying to go.

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:  ”Holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.” (Philippians 2: 16)

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