Stretch Yourself with Lesson 9
Our New Identity: Head to Heart Guide
Please pass the P's! Breaking patterns begins with prayer, but requires conscious effort over time. The 3 P's that move mountains are definitely needed here: prayer, patience and perseverance.
If you want to be free of shyness, for instance, the 6 R's of repentance are a good beginning (review Recognize and Replace!), but the time will come when you have agreed to do something (like attend a party or teach a class) and the old shyness pattern will try to get in the way.
That is where perseverance really puts feet on your prayers. Do it shy. Do it afraid. Or the enemy will be able to stop you every time. Be sure to get the outward victory (doing the thing shyness wants to avoid) and the inward victory will eventually show up (being free of the feelings of shyness).
