Developing Spiritual Discipline

by Monica
(Maryland)

My name is Monica Williams. I am a stay at home mom, I have been married for fourteen year with four children. I homeschool my 11 year old son (I also have three daughters). I have been walking with the Lord for 12 years.



The things that are near and dear to my heart are being consistent in the things of the Lord.

I start something, and then don't finish it. I need to develop discipline in most areas of my life. I am so frustrated with myself in this area. I really need to develop discipline, diligence and consistency in just about every area of my life. I want to change this and not pass these habits on to my children.

Welcome Monica

I think what you have brought up is something that we all struggle with. In the business of the world that we live in, it can be easy get so wrapped up in the day to day that we don't follow through with our commitments to the Lord and in other areas.

I'm not sure if you have read through the Fruits of the Spirit Bible study, but one of the topics that we discussed was self-discipline. Many people do not know that self-discipline is a fruit of the Spirit, but it definitely is. Having a lack of discipline is an issue of the flesh. The flesh wants to do what it wants to do when it wants to do it. If it does not want to do something right now, regardless of whether it should or not, it just doesn't want to do it. That is a distinct issue of the flesh.

That means that the only way to combat that is though the spirit. That is why God included Self-discipline as one of the Fruits of the Spirit. It is something that we can only develop through communing with God through the Holy Spirit.

I hope that makes sense.

God Bless!
