We have a choice! Life or death-Christ or Satan. We can only serve one master! On the subject of discipline....it is priceless. I am not as disciplined as I should be and am not trying to lead anyone to believe I am more disciplined than I really am. I am beng honest to all and before my Maker-to whom I am soley responsible to. I am not out to impress anyone. I do not claim to have attained it all.... I am praying that God will send some godly friends to me to help hold me accountable. However, I am learning over and over that I only need Him (its a lesson we have to continue to rest in). People will let you down---God never will! Whatever it takes-I must spend quality time seeking after God---DAILY and time in prayer DAILY-
Lord as I seek after you, not friends, position or influence, power, honor, recognition,accountability...but, as I seek after you....help me to not be sidetracked. Help me to use your time wisely and to the fullest. Help me to balance my personal time with you along with my full time job, my family, and sleep. Help me to walk away from ungodly motives, conversations, situations, and the likes. Help me to rest in you, wait for and with you, trust in you, and be in awe of you. I long for your closeness...be near to me and help me to be near to you!

Galatians 2:11-"When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong." (read the surrounding verses) That's bold. Not just anyone could do that....it wouldn't mean the same coming from someone that wasn't a believer acting in obedience to Christ---or someone who was just griping because of their own personal opinion! I think we all need a Paul in our lives...someone who is bold for Christ, can point out our strengths and weaknesses in Christ, and who in love and out of devotion to Christ, can correct us when we are in the wrong.Correction isn't always easy to take or fun either----but it is oh so priceless!

....Yes 4 hoots...it is amazing that 1 God has a plan for our lives and 2 He is fully capable of carrying out those plans....if we will submit our lives to Him and seek Him daily. I am just amazed at the level of boldness of some of the biblical characters....you just don't see boldness like that today. Working in a secular field, it is tough to balance love and boldness. I just need to stop trying to balance them myself and just be obedient and let God balance it for me.
