Spiritual Disciplines (Habits)

Many Christian people are working changing their habits and behaviors for purposes of holiness and closeness with God. Some are trying to eliminate certain behaviors, others are trying to start new ones or follow through with a spiritual discipline.

Sometimes we simply pray and hope that God takes over and miraculously instantaneously changes us. That happens. Rarely. More often than not we struggle against the flesh and sin and wrangle our ways to new paths and disciplines.

In doing so, don't disregard less 'spiritual' approaches of developing new habits. Take a look here at: Zen Habits: The Habit Change Cheatsheet: 29 Ways to Successfully Ingrain a Behavior. Yes, by all means pray for God's help but by all means work diligently toward the goals God has set for you. Fight for His calling in your life.

1. Write down your plan.
2. Identify your triggers and replacement habits.
3. Focus on doing the replacement habits every single time the triggers happen, for about 30 days.
