Breaking a habit and overcoming weaknesses


Breaking a habit and overcoming weaknesses, and traits can be difficult. This article will empower you to break a habit and weaknesses.

Do you see layer upon layer of generational weaknesses in your life or in your family? Do you see a habit forming? Have you tried to overcome these weaknesses, but given the right environment they keep returning? This article will help you break the habit of these annoying traits.

We all inherit, to different degrees, generational weaknesses and strengths.

I (Wilma) will never forget a family I visited while doing district nursing. They clearly demonstrated a generational pattern. My job as a midwife was to assist mother and baby following an early discharge from hospital. The mother drew my attention to the three-day-old baby’s right hand – the little finger was pointed perpendicular to the other fingers. The mother went on to explain that her husband, at the age of five, had a traumatic accident, which affected him emotionally for some time and left him with his little finger pointing out perpendicularly to the others. Both children were born with the little fingers pointing out the same way and on the same hand as their father‘s.

How can we stop these misfortunes being passed on to us? Can we put an end to them?

I asked that question myself after I began to suffer with a health problem that had created a pattern in my family. I did not detect it until my Endocrinologist pointed out to me that white blood cells were eating my thyroid and creating hypothyroidism. He went on to say that white cells could either eat the thyroid or the stomach wall causing pernicious anaemia. It was then that the lights turned on – I remembered my grandfather had pernicious anaemia.

I went to the Good Book, the Bible, for the answer. We are told in the Bible that Jesus was pierced for our transgressions, beaten and bruised for our iniquities. (Isaiah chapter 53 verse 5)

Transgressions and iniquities are words we do not use in our language today, so what do they mean? A transgression is an act of sin and an iniquity, according to the dictionary, is perversity or depravity. One is an act, the other a state of being – an inherent weakness or imperfection caused through acts of sin. It can be passed from generation to generation in the form of physical infirmities, emotional or behavioral depravity or perversity.

What I learnt from the Bible is that when Jesus died on the cross, He died not only for my sins, but also for my imperfections. The weaknesses passed down through the generations. It must be noted however that not all weaknesses or imperfections are the result of iniquities.
