So, earlier today I posted about how I tend to eat out of habit rather than any actual sense of hunger. The more I thought about it, even after I had hit the “publish” button (which should totally have some sort of awesome *whooshing* sounds effect just btw), I more I realized that really is exactly what the problem is – a BAD habit! I even looked up the definition of the word habit to make sure it fit and according to Webster a habit is:
a : a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition or physiologic exposure that shows itself in regularity or increased facility of performance b : an acquired mode of behavior that has become nearly or completely involuntary (bold and italics added)
When I grabbed that waffle this morning I didn’t know I was going to grab it till it was in my hand. I walked into the kitchen, open the fridge, grabbed the waffle and it wasn’t until I was about to bite in that I realized what I was about to do.
Well the opposite of a bad habit is a good one …. isn’t it? That is the conclusion I came to today while finishing up my day at work. Then I spoke with my dear friend who I will call Maria (I know it sounds silly but for what ever reason when ever I think of her I picture Maria from ‘The Sound of Music’ – weird right?) Well, Maria told me about the most interesting dream she had the other night and since I am partial to my Love speaking to me through dreams I was very interested in what she had to say.
Lo and behold she starts talking about HABITS!!! I nearly swerved off the road! I know driving and talking on cell = no no but can we stay focused on the story please? 😉 She starts drawing all these awesome conclusions I had never even considered before about good/bad habits and how to overcome them. It was exactly what I needed to hear and an amazing answer to prayer. I asked Love to help me over come this habit and he had already given Maria a dream that would lead her to giving me the very answers I was looking for! What an amazing Love is He!
In a couple days I am going to make another post with all of what she said and the notes of a study my Dad and I did together on the topic after I got home. I was driving and I am pretty sure taking notes while driving crosses a line that talking on the phone doesn’t even get close to! Thankfully, my Love had prompted Maria to take notes before hand so when I see her tomorrow evening I will be able to get them from her. 😀
Thank you Love for being so faithful. Thank you that you care about the things I care about. You want me to have the body you made for me just as much as I do. Even more than that you want me to be whole and living out truth not falling pray to lies. Thank you for your truth. ❤
