A habit not pursued is easily forgotten, replaced by what’s reasonable, what’s comfortable. All too often, what’s reasonable and comfortable is a formula for complacency – a last-luster, dulled approach to connecting with life … to connecting with Jesus. (Elaine, here)
Isn't this a profound statement? Elaine was writing about a prayer posture that she had practiced for awhile and then let slip. I find the observation applicable for so many other areas of my life--particularly when it comes to healthy practices of diet and exercise.
Another line in her post -- Old habits remembered (especially the ones that are sweet) are ones willingly reinstated -- is a hope-filled one!
There are a few sweet old habits to which I shall return. Beginning NOW.
