My Word for the year- Discipline


~to train by instruction and exercise; drill.

~to bring to a state of order and obedience by training and control.

~to punish or penalize in order to train and control; correct; chastise.

I need discipline in many areas of my life. Let’s see- the eating and exercise department. Also, the taking care of myself department. Very important-quiet time and bible study department.

Yes –Discipline is my word for 2009- the year I turn 50. It's about time for me to become disciplined, isn't it?

Proverbs 6:22-24 (New International Version)

22 When you walk, they will guide you;
       when you sleep, they will watch over you;
       when you awake, they will speak to you.

23 For these commands are a lamp,
       this teaching is a light,
       and the corrections of discipline
       are the way to life.

I heard somewhere that 50 was the new 40- the 40's weren't bad for me. I was blessed with soon to be 4 grandchildren. I had more blessings than I could count.

But 50 is hopefully when I work on being the best me I can, with discipline and change.

Let me start today.

Be blessed!
