Habit is either the best of servants or the worst of masters.

Research indicates that it takes about 21 days to make create a new habit.
Start today and by Christmas you’ll have developed the habit of . . .

Two Home Maintenance Resources
Filtered water from the refrigerator tastes great.
It also helps cut down on grocery bills when we’re no longer buying, and lugging home, all those plastic bottles.
But, it only works if you actually change the filter periodically.
If you’re like me you have great intentions, but every time you think of it you remember you have to make a trip to Home Depot to buy a new filter first.
These nice people at send me the right kind of filter at the right time.
They even send me reminder emails so that I don’t run out of filters.
I know they do this for their bottom line not my higher good, but either way it gets DONE.
Which it didn’t before I found them.

I file this under the Make it Easy on Yourself category.

A Better Way to Clean Your Pipes
I have always kept a bottle of Liquid Plumber around to use if drains get slow.
I literally can’t stand a shower that keeps the icky water pooling around my feet.
It grosses me out.
Allow me to introduce you to Bio-Clean Septic Bacteria.
It smells bad, and you have to remember to use it for 5 consecutive days the first time, but it’s so worth it.
No more sluggish drains and it works in a good way, not in a harsh chemical way.

Let’s end where we began, with the spiritual

The Lies I Love to Hear.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the lies I’m happy to believe and the truth I should tell myself instead.
The convenient self-serving lie is most often carnality in disguise.
No wonder I hang on so tightly.
So I’ve begun a collection of the truths I need to tell myself.
The first is about faith.

Tell Yourself the Truth
About Faith
I don’t need more faith; I need more sanctification.
It’s not that I don’t believe God can work in any and all
circumstances in my life; it’s really that I’m not convinced
His will is preferable to my will concerning my own life.
I think I will like my plans better.
I believe my choices for myself are better than God’s choices for me,
and by better, I don’t mean morally higher or spiritually superior,
I mean specifically that I will be happier with my own choices than
I will be with the choices God will make for my life.
My choices give me my way.
My choices make things easier for me.
My choices take back from God my life.
A life I surrendered to Him over 42 years ago.
My choices mean I have reneged on a commitment.
But, they don’t demonstrated God’s grace to others around me.
They don’t bring glory to His name.
They don’t bring lasting joy to me.
They produce no fruit unto righteousness.
They don’t please God.
This is really the truth.

What’s the favorite lie you tell yourself?
What’s the truth that can shatter that lie?
