SELF- DISCIPLINE

February 25, 2017

I started this blog several months ago but I never completed it and I even forgot I had started writing it; however, on today as I was deleting documents off my computer’s hard drive I came across it and decided to complete it for this week’s blog. I pray it inspires you and that the reason I did not complete it, is because it was needed for such a time as this.

I must confess that I find a major problem in my life is self-discipline. People who are acquainted with me and my lifestyle would believe that I am a disciplined person; however, in the most important area of my life I do need help. I like Paul in Romans 7 can say, “What I would, that do I not.”

For me there are principles and instructions that I know and have taught numerous times, yet, I fail to be consistent in practicing them. I know that applying them will assist me in my Christian walk and spiritual warfare but I allow myself to become lazy and complacent. On the one hand this experience is good for me, for it allows me to experience what many others are experiencing and it helps me to realize the struggle to be disciplined is not easy.

The definition for discipline is’ “Training oneself to do something in a controlled and habitual way.” In keeping with this definition I must set aside time to maintain a standard that is productive and rewarding. So now, I am trying to take one day at a time, and daily do those things that I know will lead to victory. Also, remembering, I am in a war and my enemy will be relentless in his endeavors to distract me, if I allow him. My success lies in my hands. I confess the scripture “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” and this means I can be self-disciplined and guess what? So can you.
