By making strides to make improved choices in life, we have put into motion the very process of breaking cycles of dysfunctional and destructive living. When we to come to understand this, it allows us to sweat a little less as we go through the day-to-day motions of routine and responsibility. What is more, if you are a Christian, you have the extra bonus of knowing that God is our strength and our song and that he is the one who has given us victory (Isaiah 12:2 NLT). We can rest easy now. There’s a new and improved cycle already in effect.
