Habits Die Hard!

They are pesky things
That have a life of their own,
And when we want to say “goodbye”
They just keep hanging on!
So many times we try
To get away from them,
As far as we can go
But they pull us back again!
What is the hold they have
And why we want to know,
When we really want to separate
Why, then, is it so…
So difficult to ease away
And give up what they gave,
And replace that with the One
Who has the power to save?
We know that He can do it
He says that we can pray,
And ask Him in His Name
To throw that thing away!
And just because it’s said
That habits will die hard,
Habits can be broken
There’s no better time to start!
So no matter what the habit
The vice, the thing to quit,
Give it up to Jesus
Say a prayer and then submit!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13
