The 40 Day Soul Fast – Week 2
Welcome to Week Two of The 40 Day Soul Fast!
This week we are focusing on the purpose of soul fasting, the symptoms of an unhealthy soul, and how everything you experience begins on a soulular level.
It is truly astounding how little we understand about the life of the soul. I commend you for making the decision to do some soul-keeping–when your soul is in order, you will be surprised how this will impact the rest of your life!
Your circumstances, experiences, relationships, even your environment are a reflection of the condition of your soul.
Seasons of fasting from the clutter and minutia that crowd your mind and cloud your soul help you to more fully enjoy God’s presence and discern His gentle promptings. Most of us are willing to heed His voice but are simply unable to hear it!
The key to greater peace and abundance is letting go of the regrets, shame, doubts, fears, insecurities, and emotional entanglements that keep you from the truth of who you really are–keep you deaf to your dreams and blind to possibilities–keep you from delighting in the Lord and entering His rest, and from trusting Him to faithfully order your steps. Hope begins to fade as the wellspring within you becomes muddied.
Take this week to get back on course. What are the things weighing you down, pulling you off center, or depleting your energy? Identify those things and begin addressing them mindfully and deliberately. Set some clear soul goals. How would you like your inner life to look at the end of this 40-day period?
It is up to you to take charge of your soul–and ultimately your destiny!
Mark 8:34 MSG: What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your soul for?
Isaiah 55:2 NKJV: Let your soul delight itself in abundance.
