“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
Galatians 6:9 NKJV
We can talked about confessing, admitting and accepting our responsibility. All of this is absolutely necessary. Good intentions and resolutions are not enough. We need to turn from those patterns of thinking and conduct that sink us. We must take the right path and stay on it.
I fully understand that breaking addictions or behaviors that have been rooted in our operating system for years and years is easier said than done. But, I am confident that small steps in the right direction will eventually help you end where God intends you to end. Stay involved in your local church. If you’re not doing so, I would urge you to reconnect with it as soon as you can. You need the embracement and the nurturing support of a group of imperfect people that will help you seek God together. This also implies having to cut toxic and unhealthy relationships out of your life, as they may be preventing you from getting closer to God.
Find a community of believers and disciples that you can be a part of. Get involved as a volunteer in your local church and community. Be intentional in discovering your true identity in Christ. Start serving others . It will help you stop your hyper focus on yourself and your issues and but your focus on God and others!
Remember; service is not the “root”of your salvation but the “fruit” of your spiritual journey.
