Day 67: Discipline

For the last 7 months I feel like life has been put on hold and all we have down shifted into survival mode. You want life to come to a screaming halt...have twins! Every routine we ever had, every goal we ever made, every to do list ever written all went in the garbage and it was survival of the fittest! We didn't know how to do anything so we made it up as we went along and now here we are 7 months later feeling as though our lives are a little undisciplined and we haven't gotten much done. We've realized when you don't have disciplines in your life, you lack vision and when you lack vision, you begin to lack purpose. Without disciplines your relationships suffer, with God and with people, your waist line suffers, really I think your future suffers because you find yourself not going anywhere because your not disciplined enough to get there.

My husband and I have decided we've had enough of not going anywhere so we set up some disciplines. I have to tell you it feels so good! It feels good to have goals, it feels good to work towards something, it feels good to be going somewhere, it feels good to be intentional and it feels good to be disciplined.

I'm grateful today the Lord has given us the spirit of self control which allows me to be more disciplined.
