Dear Diary, we have the terrible ability of falling into the cycle of ‘self pitty Betty and ‘21 questions Paula. Now I’m not saying asking ‘why’ is bad, it defiantly helps. But asking the right ‘why’ is fundamental and will differ from ‘repeat cycles’ and ‘complete cycles’. Repeat cycles are formed from the inability to accept, apply and redirect.
So we’re forever chasing the ‘why’ and making the same mistakes or completely giving in,*sigh*...”well, I may as-well just continue down this path of destruction, it’s not changing anyways!” boom!! and just like self pity Betty takes over and we’re right back in the cycle of 21 questions Paula. ” why am I still going through this!?”. Because you’re giving into your fleshy pattens...your not applying yourself in the word, you’re not repenting! nor are you leaning on god for guidance. Instead of praying you’ll party, instead of yielding you’ll take matters into your own hand..and what? end up in the same patterns or much worse. Now i’m not judging because for mannyyyy years this was me, I’m not perfect, I still struggle, but I’m learning and renewing my mind.
Complete cycles to me are basically the knowing and awareness of your patterns, it doesn’t mean they’ll disappear, as test and trails always come back for us. But it just allows us to learn from what’s happened, learn what’s within us and analyse from a different point of view. “ok this hasn’t gone right why? What do I need to change, there must be a stump in the road I’m missing that I keep tripping over”. God will meet you were you are, let him lead you out of your troubled waters. Changing your mindset will make such a huge difference with how you handle situations. Don’t become your own stumbling block. Pray for his help, guidance and wisdom. You’ll see such an amazing transformation in your lives. 😊❤️ stay blessed #gudiance #god #excusemygrammer #usewisdom #breakcycles #strengthinthelord #DOCW #diaryofachangingwoman #growth #thankyoujesus #yahweh
