“…. habits are not guaranteed for life. They can be neglected until they wither away. Every time my schedule changes (which is several times a year) I have to reassert my good habits into the new timetable.” (from outWORD, a blog that you really should visit)
Having just been through a change in schedules this thought is very real to me. Some habits have been easy to port across into a new schedule others not so.
- Basic fitness – I was playing football 2 or 3 times a week, now cycling 12 miles 4 times a week
- Writing – I was writing 2 or 3 hours during lunchtime each week – Now not so much (this is first post in 2 months )
- Reading, prayer and contemplation – Was spending 2-3 hours a week early mornings + walk & bus time each way to work – now struggling to find any real amount of time.
What are the habits that you consider important to you?
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thess 5:17
Here are 3 important ones.
- express joy
- pray and don’t stop
- be thankful and show it
