Day 12 of the 90 day Men Fast

Perspective is everything.

I cheated. I cheated. I cheated.

I am not going to go into the details of the cheat but I have not been adhering to my rules to the best of my abilities. So with this realization I have a few options:

  1. Beat myself up about it
  2. Feel like a horrible person or
  3. I can give myself a little pep talk and keep it moving.

I am only in competition with myself. A part of that process is doing my own checks and balances. I know I can do better so I just have to well….. Do better. It is a process and I believe as I surrender more to the process I will be able to experience more success with this 90 day Men Fast.

Up until today, I have been relying on my own strength, my own sheer will, my own desire to want to complete this and be successful. I have not totally failed but I haven’t been totally successful either. I know now that it is going to take more that just me.

2 Corinthians 12:9English Standard Version (ESV)

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
