  • Self-Discipline

    This post is about self-discipline. However, I did want to make sure to add information about the difference between self-discipline and self-control. We understand that self-control is being able to control our temperaments and lustful desires. Self-discipline is about correction or regulation of oneself for the sake of improvement. Self-discipline is focusing on areas that […]

  • Self-Control

    Self-Control is described as restraint exercised over one’s own impulses, emotions or desires. Galatians 5:23 – “…gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” Proverbs 5:21-23 – 21) For the Lord sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes. 22) An evil man is held captive by his own sins; […]

  • Be Deliberate

    God does laugh at our plans at times. He is truly the one in control, His plans prevail. We can make our plans, but He determines our steps ~ (Proverbs 16:9). The closer I get to God, the more my plans fall in line with His. The Word says to delight yourself in the Lord […]

  • Navigating

    My hope and prayer for anyone reading this post is that you are doing well. I wanted to talk about navigating. Typically refers to steering ourselves in a particular direction or plotting our course. In driving, most of us use an app to help us get where we want to go. I am navigating this […]

  • Silence, A Necessity for the Soul

    The cacophony of sounds was overwhelming. The constant whirring of the air conditioner and the microwave vent was very loud and constant but over that she could also hear the X-box game, the TV from the bedroom as well as the conversations of the other people in the confined space. Her appreciation of quiet was […]

  • Free Flow Friday…What Does My Billboard Say?

    Free Flow Fridays…What’s your sign? My billboard would say that I am always working on improvement. My personality gives me the freedom to accept that change is necessary in some areas. That freedom doesn’t mean it has been easy. After fellowship with my Father in Heaven, I then move forward. There have been times when […]

  • Okay…What Next?

    Today I find myself accepting things for what they are. I am in transition (again), until God does what He does for me. I have moved to another friend’s house. Having to keep transporting everything can be a bit overwhelming. Of course, all I need is my coffee pot, my Bible, my computer and my […]

  • Inevitable…Change & Death

    Inevitable…such a strong word. The dictionary defines inevitable as unavoidable, sure to happen. The synonyms include inescapable, irrevocable, destined as well as fated or decreed. This is a very strong word and when I think of inevitable, I think change and death. Not in a morbid way for this post but in a way that […]

  • The Path of Life

    Alma Mater: The Path of Life This prompt is significant to me. As valedictorian for my high school graduating class, I gave the speech. I remember my knees shaking as I sat waiting for my turn to speak. I remember the theme for the graduating class that year was “We’ve only just begun to live.” […]

  • Freedom to Rejoice

    Today’s post is kind of short for me but to the point. “This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24 (NKJV) Today, recognition blesses my soul and that keeping my commitment to the present, the now is wrapped up in this Scripture. I believe […]
