Discipline is an act that when viewed or spoke of gathers criticism, and/or disbelief. The criticism and disbelief come because in a world full of “I can do anything” many truly don’t believe “they Can Do Anything “(Phil 4:13). Discipline isn’t perfection, it’s protection. It’s a purposeful act that will produce, prevent, and also prepare.
What areas of your life are you disciplined in? What areas of your life do you desire to be more disciplined?
Consider what your acts of discipline will Produce in your life? Prevent in your life? Prepare you for? Whatever the answers are, believe it’s worth fighting for.

In understanding that everyone is an individual, “Distinct” from those of their own kind, it is then reasonable to understand that in ministry each distinct person has their own distinct character and calling. These distinctions govern how you do ministry. How your distinctions define you govern your message as well as whom your message reaches. No one, distinct, individual prays the same, thinks the same or moves the same. In Christian ministry we all serve and do the work of one GOD with the goal of bringing others to GOD through CHRIST JESUS. We were made to walk distinctly because there is someone(s) with a distinct need that we meet. Therefore individual, continue to walk your righteous walk, talk your talk and seek to please your HEAVENLY FATHER above, who in HIS divine nature created you like no other on purpose. You may not be called to a pulpit, nor to a divinity degree or formal ministry title, but when you walk with GOD seeking greater for all you come into contact with, we are all Ministers. GOD Bless your ministry. Walk worthy in it, understanding that we are all , like John 15:5 says “branches on the vine and apart from the vine we can do nothing, but remaining connected to the vine we can bear much fruit.”
Ich Liebe Dich Alle❤️

On Day 26 I was grateful to have one of those tall dark stranger moments. I had one earlier in the year. It was the moment where I unknowingly sat beside a seemingly single good looking man and we laughed at the same things and tapped our fingers to the same music. Same scenario, different stranger, different place. This time it was at church. I believe its a sign. There are no coincidences.

On Day 25 I was grateful for the ability to put a smile on the faces of those I love. I was also grateful for traveling mercies.
On day 24 I was grateful for the ability to fight. Not physically (I’m not a killer but don’t push me:), but the ability to verbally fight the good fight of faith for the ones I love. I also war in the spirit for you as well.
I’m also thankful for those whom are, or once were, a champion for me in that way as well.

On day 23 I was grateful for Oyster stuffing made just for me and family seen and unseen that I love and love me.
On yesterday I was truly grateful for the early mornings rising and traveling mercies. As I laid down last night (this morning ) with these thoughts of gratitude the song “Beyond the Veil” by Daryl Coley plays in my head.
I’m grateful for laughter. It’s one of my favorite things to do. I pray a spirit of laughter, joy and peace overtakes you as you celebrate in The giving of Thanks with your friends and families. There is a time for everything, and tonight and prayerfully this season was and will be …..the time to laugh.

I’m grateful to know that “A Christmas Story” will be live on prime time television. Say it with me, “you’ll shoot your eye out”. I’m so grateful for the simple things that bring me abundant joy.
