Discipline

“For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God's discipline is always right and good for us because it means we will share in his holiness. No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it is painful! But afterward there will be a quiet harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs. Mark out a straight path for your feet. Then those who follow you, though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall but will become strong.” Heb 12:10-13 NLT

I like the idea of becoming strong and sharing in the holiness of God. I do not like the idea of having to be disciplined.

Have it All

The following post was originally posted on another blog in 2014. My precious friend, Monica, shares her heart in a lovely way.

In college I had one class that was for women only. During that class, I got the opportunity to learn differing perspectives of living as a Christian woman.

Having It All and Letting it Go--With Thanks

This post was written by my sweet sister and mentor, Dianne. I am posting it on her birthday,
which would likely embarrass her. She is full of wisdom and a blessing. I hope you will enjoy
and be blessed by her words. It was orignially posted on a group blog in 2013 that is now
lost to the 1s and 0s and space. However, it is well worth your time to read!

I have to admit that there have been some amazing times in my life when I have had it all; or at least MOST all of it.  And it has been wonderful.  There have been times when it’s almost as if God has offered me a gift – times when He has just handed me the unexpected, like a beautifully wrapped package done up in a gold ribbon, and said, “Here. Take this if you want to, and experience the joy it will bring you.”
