What Bad Habits Do You Want To Break Today?
Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.
Bad habits and sin can be a real struggle for so many of us. It’s almost like they’re ingrained in our very being and breaking free from them seems impossible. But I believe that most things we do in life are based on habits, which means that we have the power to choose what kind of habits we form. We can choose to practice healthy, good habits that are full of integrity – ones that lead us towards success and happiness. And as Benjamin Franklin once said, “It is easier to prevent bad habits than to break them.” It’s true; it’s much simpler to avoid forming bad habits altogether than it is to try and break free from an already established pattern of behavior.
Personally, I’ve struggled with my own share of bad habits throughout my life – smoking cigarettes, abusing alcohol and drugs, swearing, overeating… you name it! However, through the grace of God, I’ve managed to overcome these obstacles and learn how to live without them weighing me down anymore. If you’re currently struggling with a bad habit yourself and feel like there’s no way out – don’t give up hope just yet! Trust in God’s plan for your life and allow Him to work in your heart. Breaking free from those negative patterns may seem daunting right now but remember: He who began a good work in you will carry it on until completion! ~ Bill Greguska
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here

Are You Tired Of Your Bad Habits?
Bad Habits Can Be Broken!
Bad habits, we all have one or two, at least. Here are some informal ways to help with any bad habits you might have. Every one of us needs to break a bad habit at some point or another. Remember to bathe your bad habits in prayer and ask others how long you have had them.
Remember to include in breaking your bad habits the practice of prayer and asking others for help. The best advice when breaking a bad habit is to create a new pattern to replace it. It all sounds easy to do, and basically, it is.
Bad habits can be a real hindrance in our lives but the good news is that we can always choose to practice better ones. I believe that most things we do are based on habits, and if we make a conscious effort to cultivate healthy ones, they will eventually become second nature to us. Benjamin Franklin’s wise words ring true: “It is easier to prevent bad habits than to break them.” Personally, I have struggled with many bad habits over the years such as smoking cigarettes, abusing alcohol and drugs, swearing and overeating. But by the grace of God, I was able to overcome these vices and learn how to live without them. Breaking bad habits may seem impossible at first but it starts with taking small steps towards change every day. If you or someone you know is struggling with a particular vice or habit that seems difficult to shake off, remember that there is always hope and healing through prayer and determination. ~ Bill Greguska
Be Prepared For The Challenge
Alcohol, Drugs, and Cigarettes Are Three Bad Habits To Drop!
But be prepared for roadblocks and temptations to get you off your goal. If you do fail in your initial attempt, keep going. It took me almost three years to quit smoking. It did take work, patience, prayer, and perseverance to try. You can break bad habits, but it will take work, patience, prayer, and determination!
Are you tired of your bad habit(s)? Quitting a habit or sin is one of the hardest things in life, but it becomes easy when we realize that Jesus didn’t just die to forgive us of our sins but give us power over it and free us from being in bondage to anything.
Stop trying to stop! Instead, focus on preventing yourself from wrong thinking. As a man thinks, so is he. 1. Your thoughts will shape your decisions. 2. your choices will shape your actions. 3. Your responses will help form your new habits that you want. Philippians 4:8-9 ~ Bill Greguska
