In this episode, Bonnie discusses how habits are most effectively formed. See how God’s promises keep us motivated, rather than focusing on regrets, obstacles and failures from the past. Rather than distracting yourself, use the power of God’s promises.

Scripture: "I will restore to you the years that the swarming locusts has eaten.” Joel 2:24-25

Soul Care Tip: Research shows nurturing a comfortable environment for yourself (no threats or guilt), and choosing easy, simple steps facilitate habit formation. What is one small thing you can do for yourself today?

Bonnie walks you through the practice of praying God’s promises to keep yourself truly motivated.
