Breaking a Habit

If you want to work on breaking a habit or sin, there are three basic steps:

  1. Make a goal.
  2. Establish boundaries. Here are two posts to read on this subject:
    1. Boundaries
    2. Secondary Boundaries
  3. Renew your mind every time you break your boundaries (or better yet, every time you feel like breaking them). Here is a post on this subject: The Renovation of the Mind and here is a list of tools you can use to renew your mind: Renewing of the Mind Tools

This of course looks much easier on the computer screen than it does in real life! In real life, breaking free from a bad habit or sin often seems impossible.

It’s not.

If you want to break free from a bad habit or sin, follow the suggestions in the Renewing the Mind Project Tab first and then read the information in the following categories: Transformation 101, Breaking Bad Habits and Sins, and Renewing of the Mind tools (the categories are on the right hand side of this blog). Start at the end of each category and work your way forward.

For additional help, my weight loss app contains questions and Bible verses that help with bad habits. Although the app is geared toward an overeating habit, it’s easy to mentally adjust the questions to help with other bad habits.

  1. Renewing our minds is vital. I like to try and do it when a thought first enters my head. Not always successful but its way better to nip it in the bud early than to let it bloom.
