Repentance

Repentance is something a whole lot of people get confused about. What is repentance? Repentance is to be sorry for an action, and to turn from it. Many believe that they can do their bad habit, repent and then go right back to the habit, the next day, and repent again. This is not true repentance, because when someone plans on doing the same thing, they aren’t truly planning on turning from it. They may feel bad about it enough to be apologetic, but it takes true repentance to turn away. I was led to write about this because, I have been guilty of this mindset, for a long time and I’m still learning, on how to let go of old habits. I believe when someone is truly ready, to give up a bad habit, even when they’re addicted, they will find a way to quit.

There is always things someone can do to get help for breaking bad habits. I believe talking helps and I am always willing to listen. I also believe in replacing bad habits with good habits because they help to motivate someone to find healthy options for their life. Finding someone, that can be a sponsor, or a mentor, can be a huge help, because having someone to help be accountable, will help during rough times. I personally find that writing helps, because I’m able to get what I feel out, and that makes me feel motivated. Staying away from negative music, and movies is a big help, because let’s face it movies and music are full of bad habits especially illegal drugs, which I think is sad. Someone should Stay away from people with the habits that are the same as theirs. If someone had a problem drinking alcohol then the worst place for them to hang out is a bar. These are a few ways to get away from bad habits. Can you think of some, I may have missed?

My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.

    1. I believe some have to work for it in order to build their faith. It may be necessary because when someone sows habits into their life they have to reap it with hard work and faith to be free either way. I know every person can be free if they really want it. This is the reason I’m here to help the ones that are seeking that help.
