It is not easy to say goodbye to a habit. But through self-determination and discipline, coupled with prayers, nothing is impossible - Daily Bible Reflections November 26,2015


NOW IS THE TIME
 
“But when these signs begin to happen, stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand.” – Luke 21:28
 
       My 49-year-old patient who has been a smoker since his college days came to see me one day to ask me about how to stop smoking.
       After two weeks, he came back telling me,“It’s so hard to kick the habit, doc, so I just cut down my usual consumption to half.”
       Ladies and gentlemen of the smoking republic, if you are really bent on kicking the habit of smoking, you have to do it “on a lump sum” and not on “installment basis.” You need to go all the way and give it up completely.
       God is giving us enough time and chances to right our wrongs. So let us make use of this time to change our ways. The earlier we do it, the better. Let’s not wait till tomorrow, for tomorrow may not come. There’s no other time. Now is the time. Act now before it’s too late. Dr. Henry L. Yu (henrio_md@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: It is not easy to say goodbye to a habit. But through self-determination and discipline, coupled with prayers, nothing is impossible. Without God, we can do nothing. With Him, we are strong.
 
Dear Lord, grant us the determination to kick our bad habits and become the good children that You have designed us to be.
 
St. Catherine of Alexandria, pray for us.
