No discipline brings joy, but seems sad and painful; yet to those who [allow training from it] it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.
- Hebrews 12:11
Have you ever wondered why God puts you on such a short leash while others seem to do whatever they want?
Don’t get upset about consequences or the feeling that God is a strict parent.
The tension of a circumstance will always pass.
Spiritual infants demand constant comfort. God knows what and how to prune us to have unusual growth in the next season...will you let Him? Will you trust Him?
TODAY: When I am being stretched from life lessons, let me consider it training, not consequences. No more self-pity.
For our earthly fathers disciplined us for only a short time as seemed best to them; but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. Hebrews 12:10
