Detoxing from Self-defeating Choices
Author, Cassandra Mack
” Choose Life”
I absolutely love this workbook! I am in the 3rd section of the book: Fasting against counter-productive choices! I always thank God for being the supplier of all my needs, and He always delivers! Over the last couple of weeks, the word intentional kept coming to mind. I want to learn how to pursue intentional living, start making better choices so I can reap the benefits.
Each section of the workbook begins with an inspiring introduction. The “Will” section begins with an illustration of a man who’s suffering from negative consequences, resulting from “bad” choices. Self-defeating choices can have a snowball effect, impacting not just us but our loved ones as well!
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you, life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live”
I love the referenced scripture Deuteronomy 30:19, because it explains how we have the free will to choose the path we want. God gives us an option; life or death, it’s up to us to decide! If we chose wisely our future generations will also reap the benefits, glory be to God!
These are some of the scriptures referenced in the workbook, corresponding with the “Will” section of the book:
- Proverbs 8:14 – Counsel and sound judgment are mine, I have insight, I have power
- Ephesians 5:15-16 – Be very careful, then, how you live- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil
- 2 Timothy 1:7 – For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love and of a sound mind
“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”
Working through this workbook has been an awakening experience! I am experiencing the freedom that comes from the wisdom of the bible! Join me next time for the next section: Detoxing from Relationships!
Thank you Jesus for your undeserved Grace & Mercy!
