I have been struggling with my diet and exercise plan. It is simple enough to follow, I just lack self discipline.
Today I logged into YouVersion to read Colossians (I'm reading Colossians every day this month) and this was the verse of the day:
2 Timothy 1:7 NIV
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
I don't know how many times I have read the book of Timothy, but it is safe to assume I have read this verse more than 5 times. At least.
So how did I miss it? The Spirit God gave me gives me self dicipline.
So I must have self discipline.
Leaving the question, why do I not see self discipline in my life? Why am I not using what God has given me? How can I better tap into this resource in my life?
I suspect the answer is that I will need to practice it. The more I use it, the easier it will become, and the better I will get with it.
