We’ve all had the experience of changing jobs or moving and then catching ourselves mindlessly turning in the direction of the old job or house while out driving. It doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re yearning for that old house or job. It’s just our brain’s “muscle memory” kicking in. Because that’s how our brain works.
So, if you have been genuinely trying to change, let go or forgive and your brain isn’t cooperating, don’t be too alarmed. Just take the way-ward thought to God with this message: “I found this wandering through my head and I believe this is your problem to deal with now.” Repeat as needed.
