Discipline

Why am i writing? that's a great question you ask. It's been over a year ( the most hectic one, and yet the most beautiful) and I haven't written any of my thoughts or experiences.  I had my little girl on Valentines Day of 2013... since then my life has been 100% different, my marriage, my faith... everything.



I am writing because I have a gnawing feeling that it's one thing of many things that will help me become more of the person God is calling me to be. Discipline. I am learning in this new chapter of life that discipline is very important for me, but for the stewardship of my family as well. Soon enough here, i will actually be doing some REAL disciplining of my little one, and I want to say that it comes from a heart that is daily excepting the discipline that comes from above. I also want to be a person who disciplines myself in my body, mind and heart. Some ways I am experiencing discipline- before Christmas started up working out my body and not over-indulging. There is also a rekindled desire and prayer for reading the Word daily.  and, I have taken to writing as a way to meditate on what God is teaching me.

the following passage is on my mind


Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Do Not Grow Weary

Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?

“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,
nor be weary when reproved by him.
For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,
and chastises every son whom he receives.” (Hebrews 12:1-6, ESV)

So, I guess in short, I am writing because I want to have the world see I mean business. I want discipline to more apart of my life. I want God's hand to touch every aspect of what I'm doing, for His glory, so that others can see Him through my life. I hope this starts with responding to His discipline in my life.


Let me know ways that I can do this better, that you have found help you!

thanks friend
