        Joy is found when we do things exactly God’s way. If you struggle with habits, constantly pray prayers about what the Bible says “To do.” The Bible says to run from temptation. Pray constantly about running, think constantly about running from what drags you back in. The Bible says to be content. To be content with clean TV shows, content with looking at nature instead of some need for wild things, to be content with thinking clean thoughts instead of evil fantasy thoughts. Consider praying:
        “Father, help me to turn-from-temptation, and help me to be content.”
        What is your goal for how often you will pray this prayer? Remember, with every prayer you must be completely sincere with a full desire to change.
        Second, the Bible says “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
        Do you want to “live?” We find joy and life by focusing on the Bible. We find joy and life by changing daily so that we can do what it says.
        Third, how will you make your access to temptation harder?
        Fourth, have a written plan of what you will do instead. Remember, you want to have a great joyful productive year. That will only happen if you gain habits of doing other things.
        Finally, what two habits will you work on daily to promote your change? How will you remind yourself to do them daily?
        New habits start us on a path toward joy.
