Being disciplined is not something we do naturally!
The scripture says
Train yourself to be godly
1 Timothy 4:7
I really enjoyed this book, I found it biblically sound and interesting.
We need a book that instructs us from a non-feminist view.
This word Train is derived from the Greek word which in English is
In other words a spiritual workout!
Like the Greek athletes who lay aside every encumbrance,
We Christian women need to get rid of every
, habit, and tendency that blocks godliness) association
This is not to be confused with legalism;
The legalistic heart does things to gain merit with God;
The disciplined heart says
"I will do this because I love God and I want to please HIM"
Firstly, you must be saved;
The Gospel is about what God has done!
The Gospel is the amazing news about God's son
Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross.
His death, burial and resurrection!

Nothing worth anything is really going to cost you nothing!
Everything I do requires a part of all these character traits;
Look, we will never stop learning and growing in the things that glorify Christ!
Just because we are women does not mean we will make good wives or mothers!
~We need godly examples and the truth to be read and understood~
Applying truth and biblical principles are an everyday process!
I know each of us could find fault with ourselves or even our own parents;
But we are called to continue...
That means just because we did something wrong does not mean we should stop trying!
When I think about giving up in a certain area, I have an inner compass

Keep YOUR eyes On the SON
Remember, it is not what you FEEL
It is what the Scripture's teach us;
Therefore, we THINK...
