Hurts Habits and Hangups
What are they?
I know, I know Beth Moore does not talk about hurts habits and hangups in the video. But I believe our strong holds in life have a lot to do with the famous saying from Celebrate Recovery. We use our past painful experiences to form our continue behavior that will limit us in life. As Beth Moore says we continue to go back to the same old sinful behavior when we cannot release our painful past. I pray that you will take the time to watch this video in full as it is very powerful.
For me, my strong hold is doubt and fear. This stems from me always remembering all the failures I have had in life. How each one of those times has been so devastating to me and my family. Plus being a single parent to special needs children each time things did not work out I would blame myself. I do not like that pain, so I am always trying to prevent things from not working. If it even appears that something will not work out the way I think it should, I do not step out and attempt to do it. But, God does not want me to wallow in fear and doubt the devil does.
When I let fear and doubt hold me back God cannot work in and through me. I experience depression, anxiety, overwhelming thoughts. My behaviors get to a point of needing to be continually reassured by those around me. Where I think God wants me though is to only depend on Him for reassurance in what He is doing in my life.
How do we get past our strong holds though? I believe it takes a lot of work, sometimes even professional help. Prayer, studying the Bible, talking to trusted friends, attending support groups helps break us free from our past hurts. In further posts I will try to offer help and information from the Bible and other sources to help me and others reading to get past our strongholds.
As this is Thankful Thursday post I would like to share how thankful I am for God’s continual patience as I learn to step past my doubt and fear. How God is taking my hurts habits and hangups and making me a stronger more faithful woman of God. I am not all the way there yet, I do not believe this will ever be totally gone from me. But, each thing God brings me to that triggers my fear and doubt He will develop my character into being a better person for Him.
I would love to work all this out with others, do you feel you have hurts habits and hangups that builds up your strong holds. Do you feel stuck where you are because the devil keeps reminding you of your past? Lets talk and pray together as we allow God to change us from the inside out.
