Discipline comes from Disciple

Last Sun, Pastor talks about Striving for Excellence, and realising he emphasise quite abit on discipline. He define discipline is persistently doing the things that you do not want to do. I defined discipline as doing the things behind all the glory. We all have our own share of struggle regarding discipline. Why is discipline so important? Because simply its biblical. And I realise...the word discipline comes from the word Disciples. To truly be a disciple takes discipline.

Discipline to love when u hate the person, to encourage when u are discouraged, to claim victories when u have defeats. Aaaaaa Defeats... no glory in defeats, no growth, no joy really simply sucks. One can only grow when u have victories. As I looked back, in time of February. I had no victory, lets face it it was a defeat but not THE defeat. Straight I was launched into camp, defeats and discouragement from all directions including myself not only rolled into my life but my heart. But out of all these I defeats, one have to fight, conquer and claimed the victories not by choice but by discipline.
This pic is so awesome, this is discipline behind all the glory.

Where was the victory in my midst of defeats? It starts in my heart. With each choice, each thought. That is what it means by Growing from strength to strength. Growing from victory to victory, glory to glory. Being discipline to give thanks, to know every season God is good, to seek God. I know its hard it really is, but it takes disicpline to claim your victories people. Start with your heart and your victories will be seen in your circumstances.
Its so easy to give up, so easy to just say I'm done, so easy to say I'm contented with my defeat and so be it because I'm like that I get content with things that I don't ask for more. It takes discipline to say if God willing I want more, I want to do more get more and I can have it. It takes grace and discipline to truly be more than conquerors, to be true disciples.
