I am not a blogger. But I am a thinker. Today I have been reading my assignment in the book "Made to Crave" by Lysa Terkeurst and asking myself if sustained discipline is possible. I had a disciplined week last week followed by a day of letting myself go. Why is choosing to be disciplined so difficult. I believe that God call us to be disciplined in the way we live our lives and He would not expect it of us if it were not possible. The next choice I make will be one of discipline. I am hoping to keep making one wise choice after another, but if I don't? God forgives and I will begin again to make one wise choice.
Sometimes I don't feel like the small daily choices I make matter very much, but they all add up. If I keep making one small wise choice after another, I will lead a disciplined day. If I lead a whole row of disciplined days I will have had a disciplined week! The only way I can accomplish this is if I depend on God to help me make these wise and disciplined choices. i am unable to sustain it on my own.
My first wise choice today is to not spend too much time on the computer...
