Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, your values becomes your destiny.   Mahatma Gandhi


There aren’t too many things I can think of that are in need of repair more than Habits.  We need to keep rebuilding and reforming ourselves on a daily basis or we can get caught up in a pattern of unhealthy habitsHabits that conquer.

I found most habits are so hard to change it’s almost safe to say they are set in concrete.  I also found the only difference between a rut and the grave are the dimensions?  Why won’t we make changes instead of digging ditches?

I don’t know about you, but at times it seems as if there’s me and then there is this whole other person called Habits; who unfortunately are a part of me too.  Don’t get it twisted; it’s just who I am not multiple personalities, another excuse for some.  At times for me, Habits can be so controlling they cause me to wonder Who’s in Control.

Now don’t get me wrong, I and my habits know each other well, but it seems as if that old stuck in my ways habit, the one I’m so proud of, has the upper hand when it comes to taking charge.  I know exactly what I want to do until those old habits surface causing me to give myself plenty of reasons why now is not a good time to the point that I can actually convince myself to do whatever it is later; a habit. 

The thing is, I know most times that’s not going to happen either, all because of habits that are not productive, and a total waste of time that is almost as bad as on a construction site all day long discussing how to hammer in a nail.

Who’s in Control?  Apparently Bad Habits!  That’s hard to take with our perfect selves.  Now don’t get upset, I’m only talking about me and the one’s willing to admit that they can get in their own way because of some in place habits.

Simply put, you told yourself what you want to do, (made plans) but as usual, it was all talk and no action.  Instead, you did what you usually do, which is to follow the same path day in and day out, coupled with lots of dreams that aren’t going anywhere because you are used to not putting in the work.  Another habit. 

When we make a habit of thinking to ourselves and talking to others about promises we will never fulfill, usually it’s just something to say; small talk.  A habit we created for ourselves to help us look good when in truth all it does is shut down progress.  And We know it. 

We know when we can’t or won’t control our actions or decisions it doesn’t feel good; poor decisions never do, proving old habits are hard to overcome to the point that we will hurt ourselves in some manner before we are willing to change our ways.  Perhaps it’s because we simply don’t think to change them, don’t want to change them, or we don’t know how to change them.

Conversations or acts that require us to do something different are mostly unwanted because they represent change and often too much information about ourselves, forming a habit of secrecy.  Have you ever felt that way?  If so, get over it, we are just not that important to others.  The only ones thinking about you is you and the habit of thinking you’re all that.

I am not saying change is easy, in fact, it’s one of the hardest things to face, but we do have choices.  We can stay ignorant, we can settle in, or we can Change our Habits through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, therefore changing our lives.

We don’t have to lose control of what’s good for us and our families because of habits and becoming too vain to accept the fact that some habits are not in our best interest, possibly including our Soul.  What about all those great plans we made?  I guess they will just have to wait because our lazy habits have a habit of running the show?

I have to change the habit of not changing my habits because the bad habit side of me doesn’t even think about reform, it’s just used to doing what it want to do; A habit hiding deep in my mind.  DUH!  That can’t be healthy.

Most of you know Who’s in Control, and for those who don’t, today I will proclaim again that Jesus Christ is in Control. 

I don’t care how many times I have said it before, I will keep my faith intact, I know a Change Has Come.  I will continue to proclaim Jesus Christ is Lord when I am struggling and when I succeed.  I know with Christ I can break this chain, I know with Christ I can do all things, so the breaking down of harmful habits is just a start.

When we don’t recognize the fact that our bad habits cause us to slowly lose control, our response is normally I didn’t see one that coming.  The Devil is smart, he does everything for us not to suffer a shock to our system.   We just quietly morph into what we aren’t, all because it’s nearly impossible to change what we are not aware of.

Be sober, be diligent; because of your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.   1st Peter 5:8 KJV

Information, education and the Love of God are the answers to our problems.  Let Jesus Christ be our Habit.

Some tell us it’s easier to keep habits than try to break ourselves of them, which may be true in some cases, still that’s like saying Give Up.  Don’t ever take on a defeated attitude and stop trying to break lazy habits that impede our work habits, or nasty habits that impede our healthy habits, or bad habits that change our character causing us to fall into more useless habits, like unnecessary routines.  It’s easier to prevent bad habits than break them.

In order to gain control while dumping some useless baggage along the way is to arm ourselves with the Positive Habits.  Fore-instance; Creativity is a habit, a good habit, and to know that successful people have successful habits.  Jenny Craig weighed in with A change in habits lead to a change in life. 

Still many get caught up because they know Habits are safer than rules; you don’t have to watch them, and you don’t have to keep them.  What they don’t know is They Keep You.   (Frank Crane)

It’s Something To Think About!

Thank you, Lord, for it is in Jesus name that we pray.  To God Be The Glory!
