True Love Dicipline

Today i woke up with a heavy heart. I find myself fighting hard to stay a float. My will says get under the covers and just shut it all off and surrender to me your feelings, but my spirit says hold on tight for this too shall pass press on forward fighting the good fight for the Lord disciplines those He loves, and He loves YOU. Today as i drove back from dropping the kids at school i wanted to cry so loud and profound but i just couldn't it was as if someone was holding me tight hugging me and caressing me and every time i would move to say or even feel anything the Holy spirit would gently whisper "I am here Jackie, be faithful to my word and i will be with you all the days of your life". I came home and desperately opened my Bible seeking more and more comfort just like the Psalmist pleaded with God " Teach me your ways oh Lord and i will walk in your truth" Ah and of course He is never late nor forsakes us and takes me directly to what He wants me to know is going on right now that i can't seem to understand.

The word came to me from Hebrew 12:7-11

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline), then you are illegitimate children and not true sons.

Ah OK Father i see and receive the correction for ONLY you know what is best for me even though it hurts like crazy i continue reading the outcome of all perfect discipline.

Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

YES how calming to the soul is that! The world might think you have lost your mind when you tell them my Lord is disciplining me and as much as it hurts i embrace it and understand it. Reading this today gave me the strength i needed to go by my day because even though our God disciplines us He never forsakes us. FOR HE LOVES US...

Hey Jackie, thanks so much for following me! You're only 27? I always thought you were much older because of the way you write and carry yourself, well much more mature, rather! Have a great day!
