It is hard when we find
ourselves so deep into something that we know we shouldn’t be involved in. Sometimes it’s easier just to keep going in
the same direction, making the same mistakes and following the same behavioral
patterns. It is comfortable staying
where you think it’s normal.
In order for our “normal”
to be changed we must first change our habits and recognize the sin that is
holding us back. And for that to happen,
our perception of reality must be redefined.
As followers we are called
by Jesus to “Seek First His Kingdom and His Righteousness, and then He promises
we will have all we need.” (Matthew 6:33)
However, it is also true
that our willpower is limited. Our
intentions are good, but our follow through doesn’t always come through.
For me, I found comfort in the song Sober, by
One part of the song that I
Three months and I’m still breathing
Been a long road since
those hands I left my tears in
But I know it’s never
We all struggle with something
or someone and I find that this song is a great reminder that we take things
one day at a time. And we take delight
in the small milestones that we come across.
And as Followers of Christ we have one more thing to delight in during
the hard times and relapses, God wants us to lean on Him and find refuge in
Him. In Hebrews 13:5 God promises to
never leave us nor to forsake us.
Here’s a quote that I love:
Having issues isn’t the absence of victory in our lives. It’s simply reminding us victory is right
around the corner.
