A lesson in discipline

Day two

Today was the second day in my lesson in discipline. I awoke at an earlier time and purposed myself to have alone time with God.

I must admit, I’m more tired than normal, but I know I’ll get used to it eventually. The thing is, I noticed a difference yesterday. I didn’t get as short tempered with my children, my husband, or myself. I was able to “be still” and listen, observe, and actually got a few things accomplished in the process. Most importantly, in my personal life right now, I didn’t get stressed out! That’s not to say there aren’t any outside stressors, but my daily happenings went very well.

I look forward to God working mini-miracles in my life…that’s not saying I don’t expect any large ones, but focusing on the small things is where I want to begin. I want to experience genuine change! I want to be the “me” He created me to be, not what my circumstances have caused me to become.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

**Father, create in me a new heart. Mold me into a new person. Chisel away the corrupted pieces. I know it may be difficult and painful, but the person You created is beneath it all. One that is beautiful, confident, loving, giving, and fully focused on You. Amen
