It's a choice!!!

Can you guess what God is speaking to my heart about?
Have you ever noticed how close the words "discipline" and "disciple" are?

Food for thought!!!


“Whatever your goals are, there's one thing for certain—
it will be almost impossible to get there without discipline and self-control.”

"Discipline is your friend,
not your enemy."
~~~Joyce Meyer~~~

Proverbs 12:1
To learn, you must love discipline;
    it is stupid to hate correction.

Proverbs 5:23
He will die for lack of self-control;
    he will be lost because of his great foolishness.

Hebrews 12:11
No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! 
But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.

Proverbs 10:7
People who accept discipline are on the pathway to life,
    but those who ignore correction will go astray.

Psalm 94:12
Joyful are those you discipline, Lord
    those you teach with your instructions.

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
