Today’s sermon via videotape was about habits. It was definitely unique and reminded me why its important for us to hear sermons about familiar topics. We get a new slant on an old topic and it helps us rethink that topic and our response to it and that is a really good thing for me.
I actually know a fair bit about habits and much of what the pastor said was not new to me, but it helped me think about habits in a different way and find better responses to dealing with habits that I know I need to break.
Some of his points were ones I did not need to consider, but there were a couple that were aimed right at me and I need to deal with them beginning today. It is easy to see where you need to change, but it is not always easy to embrace that change. I liked his ideas about how to go about that change and I wrote down a lot of notes to help me keep on track.
Now, as I plan to implement those changes, I will need to keep account of my progress which I hope will keep me moving in a positive, forward direction.
It starts today and I want to be successful so I will keep a record of my progress in the right direction.
Father, you are the key to my success. Help me to be positive and move forward in that light as I seek to change those habits that I know need to be removed from my life. I trust you to give me the encouragement I need to make progress. Amen.
