Lately, I have been overwhelmed with my lack of self-control; with eating, with being lazy, with all kinds of things.
But, continually I have been reminded of this verse:
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
As a child of God, I was given the spirit of self-control. I have it, not it’s time to utilize it!
It has been a good reminder as I got to grab that 3rd cookie… I am going to really try this month to utilize and build my self control. Like with many things, the harder you work at something the stronger you become.
“But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.” (1 Corinthians 9:27)
“A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.” (Proverbs 25:28)
