BREAKING OLD HABITS

Colossians 3:8 You know better now, so make sure it’s all gone for good: bad temper, irritability, meanness, profanity, dirty talk.

Backsliding is common in the process of recovery. I am not talking about relapse but of falling back into your old ways.

Most backsliding in my experience is caused by selfishness. Wanting things to be back the way they used to be because you understood them better then.

Recovery is a continual process of self- discipline.

Prior to coming into recovery, I had a good excuse. I didn’t know any better. Now I do and I need to keep a close eye on what I do and say at all times.

– What bad habits are you still struggling with?

 

Prayer: Lord help me today to start working on the things I am hanging on to.
