Stop The Cycle

Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs

One day my two smallest girls had gotten into an argument and my baby girl started yelling and stormed up to her room. At that moment I had a fast forward picture of an older version of me and I heard the Lord say stop the cycle. To myself I said we are going to stop this now because she will not wait until she is my age to learn how to communicate and express herself correctly. So I called her back downstairs and I asked her what happened and to talk to me about how she feels. She immediately began to cry. I told her that I’m not fussing and that we are going to do whatever it takes to walk through this process. It was ok for her to feel the way she felt and what she had to say was important, but it wasn’t ok in how she responded. I would sometimes have problems with communicating what I felt and wanted to say so in my frustration I would not think what I had to say was important so I wouldn’t say it, I would hold it in until I exploded and 9 out of 10 it was on the person who didn’t even deserve it. Because I had no one to help me through it, it became and formed other unhealthy habits that became worse as an adult. They say that some habits are hard to break, but every cycle can be broken. A lot of it was learning how to forgive, let go and how to effectively communicate. I explained to my daughter why it was important and that I didn’t want her to wait until she was an adult to learn what she can now. It’s just like a hamster who get’s up on the wheel and once it learns how to make it turn it continue’s the cycle. It may occasionally stop and get off, but it will get back on it because overtime it became a habit and that was all it had been shown. Until it learns something better it continues the cycle. In life we continue the same cycles because it’s all we’ve known, been shown or we didn’t learn from the time before. We have the power within us to break every cycle that has been handed down to us through generations or things we have picked up over the course of our life. Just like the hamster we can get off the wheel at any given point, but it’s up to us to make the choice to stay off the continued cycle and form a more positive habit that will cause us to live a long and healthy life. The question is are we willing to do what it takes to break every chain? #CLEANTHISHOUSE
