Hi Friends! It's been a little while since I posted last. My bestie from AZ has been in town since Tuesday and we've been having a lot of fun catching up. Throw in piano lessons, baseball practices, purging and cleaning rooms, and a baseball tournament...well, let's just say I haven't been spending a lot of time on the computer. ;-) I hope you understand. With that said, my heart is convicted this week when I look at 2 Timothy 1:7.
For those who really know me well, they would probably agree that self-discipline is not one of my strong suits. I can start a fitness and better nutrition regime, but rarely stick to it. I can get things really organized, but can't maintain it. I can clean an area until it's spotless, but I have a hard time keeping it that way. I have the best intentions of being in God's Word everyday and praying for everyone on my list religiously, but I often fail even at this. I think I know why...I've never tapped into the fact that God, through His Son Jesus, has given me the power to be self-disciplined. What a relief that it is not all on me!
I think this is another verse that needs to be "written on the doorposts" of our home. Every one of us needs the constant reminder! We need to be praying this scripture back to the Father, asking for Him to help us in this area. After all the purging and cleaning we've been doing the last few weeks, I can attest to the fact that we have not tapped into the power of self-discipline that has been given to us. I know it's an area of mine that needs work and lots of prayer, for self-discipline affects so many facets of our lives. Do you struggle with self-discipline too? Do you find yourself starting things you never finish? Please tell me I'm not alone in this struggle.
I hope you have a delightful week. We will be working through more projects I've started and need to finish, playing lots and enjoying this sweet time with my dear friend. I'll post when I can!
Have I told you lately how much I appreciate you? Well, if I haven't, I'm telling you now. I love the visits and the sweet notes you leave for me. You are a treasure!
