Think on this…
You remember that song, don't you? All the biggest names in hip-hop coming together to, "stop the violence and kick the science." Back before women were throwing themselves at Flava Flav. The whole goal was to stop people from killing themselves. It's so relevant to our lives because, often we are the masters of our own demise. We keep very unhealthly habits that add to our own destruction.
We have all been there. How you ask? People will run from one part of the country to another trying to get away from ineffective habits and pattern. The problem is people usually find the same problems here that they had at home.
For instance if you were in a bad relationship before and now somehow you are in another here. "It's because all brothers are sorry!" If you had bad financial management, a new job won't fix that. It's a, you problem. We like to blame others for some of our destructive habits. We make the same bad choices and expect a different outcome. That is the definition of insanity.
We keep going around the same mountain and expecting that things will change because we have new scenery. If we are going to get into the bright futures many of us want and see for ourselves we first have to identify our own issues. The bible say it like this; "As a dog eats its own vomit, so fools recycle silliness." (Proverbs 26:11) Can you imagine eating you own...I will go on. But it's nasty and gets us nowhere. It's really crazy when God as an amazing buffet prepared for us.
What do we do then? We have to admit the negative cycles, realize that we can get out and ask for help. If you could have gotten yourself out you would have by now. That's the hardest part for many of us, admitting that we need help. The good news is God wants us to get busy living free then we do. The Bible says, "He knows the plans he has for us, for good, not evil to give us a hope and a future." (Jere. 29:11). He loves you no matter what you've down or how long you have been in the same rut. He wants to free you.
Then you can get your swagger back. He is the answer to getting free. He is everything you need. Everything you desire, Jesus IS. People are great, but only He can break you out and into your destiny. Then you can be, "Funky fresh, dress to impress, ready to party! "Or else it's, self destruction, you're headed for self destruction.
This is Just a Thought, and I just want you to think on it!
