Uphill Hopes and Downhill Habits?
Many of us have uphill hopes and downhill habits. The only way to get past that is to be intentional – deliberate – willful.
The Apostle Said this to a bunch of Christians …. throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception. 23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy. Ephesians 4:22-24 NLT
We often get attached to old habits and find them hard to shake, even comforting. That’s why it takes deliberate and intentional thinking and actions to discard them, replacing them with the best that God would have for us.
