If we have been successful in establishing a habit there will always be another one we have to establish, one that we need to work harder on or worse one we have to reestablish. This is true in training ourselves or in training our children. Just when you think you might have a habit established and things are going well someone gets sick, there is an emergency, a difficult situation your going through, you go out-of-town and any number of other things that pop up and seem to put a sudden stop to the success you felt you were having. Life never stops and therefore habit training shouldn’t either!! So no matter what happens in your life keep plugging away at Habit Training.
Habit training isn’t easy and it is easy to allow yourself to become discouraged if things aren’t going as well as you hoped they would. Well, just have a good talk with the Lord, let HIM build you up and then tell yourself to stop wallowing around in discouragement and keep on keeping on cause HE is always with us and HE will always sustain us!!
If you have been discouraged and you’ve been letting some “Habits” go, I encourage you get started all over again if that is what is needed. You will be doing yourself, your children and all those your closest to a big favor!! Life never stops and therefore habit training shouldn’t either, so don’t give up!!!! (Read more…)
