Self Control

We have finally come to the end of the road with the fruit of the spirit series. When I tell you this has been a lot of self-control to go all the way with this…

Anyway, this is the last message in this series I promise. If you need any more help with these fruits – please reach out and I will try to make a blog about your request.

Of course, I can go on and on about how my tongue used to have no filter. I could say something “new” about how hitting the gym takes a lot of restraint from giving up in the first part of your body producing sweat. But I want to say something that is so important – yet no one admits. This my friends is free will

We all have choices to make. Big or small ones – it is important that we make the right ones. I feel like in my heart I always know the right one to do. The hard part is sticking to what I know will be good for my life.

My mentor told me this little lesson. “The first time is always the benefit of the doubt. When it happens the second time – you should be paying attention.But when it happens the third time – it’s time to start making some changes.”

My stubborn personality has its benefits. Once I made up my mind – it’s no changing. No matter what people or things may throw at you, please stay focused on what is true. If you know it’s wrong – have the discipline to stay away from temptation.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.

2 Timothy 1:7
