—to train oneself to do something in a controlled & habitual way.
I’ve learned that “judgement” is not ours to give. That we should only look to GIVE love & respect to people regardless of the free will choice they themselves decide to make. Don’t be misled, that does not mean we are obligated to agree or support their actions.
Most people’s intent in life and on social media, comes from the different mindsets we all possess. Many seek attention.
Most seek to make a profit. Some seek to find themselves because majority of their lives wasn’t lived happily and that’s their goal.
Beware of those who seek destruction, evil, pain, etc.
There are so many reasons WHY people do what they do in the world & it all depends solely on intentions. Whether a person has a mind governed by the flesh or a mind governed by the Spirit.
We must desire to obtain the DISCIPLINE to seek out what will better our lives holistically; our mind, body & soul. There’s only one truth that exists throughout all eternity, even to the unseen eye; Jesus Christ.
To have your mind renewed will begin to bring blessings in abundance of Knowledge, Wisdom & Understanding. Once we accept Him and the sacrifice of His life that He gave for us; the greatest single thing we could do while we live this life is to accept that fact.
That is the entire purpose in WHY we are here. To glorify, praise & worship the name of Jesus. As easy as it may sound to do this simple task, many do not do it, in fear of others looking at them as “religious”. Also because they feel it doesn’t benefit them to do so, which is sad if it’s not understood.
To accept Jesus as our Lord & savior is a free will choice, similar to the one where a specific group of people believing that their ancestors DNA is where their own originates from. Great grandparents, grandparents, parents then us. It’s a timeline of human existence. We just so happen to have been born in the 21st century. 2018 years later…
Here is some Word to meditate on:
As it is written 📜:
“For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”
—Psalms 100:5 KJV
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
—Matthew 6:33 NIV
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
—Matthew 6:24 NIV

Do you understand what you just read? I mean honestly… if not, please don’t hesitate to ask clarifying questions in the comments section. Our sole purpose is to help bring you to know REAL LOVE! ☺️♥️
From this day forward, just make a personal vow to God to do better everyday. Choose wisely WHAT you think your purpose is on this earth. WHY am I here? HOW do I accomplish it?
Ask yourself: Do I live a self-centered life or a God-centered one?
Your answer will hold the key to living a good life compared to a GREAT one!
As we speak on material things that this world promotes heavily to us. Many desire money for understandable purposes such as taking care of their family. Many just want things to have things or do things to be entertained.
Yet all of those “things” hold no real value, at all. It’s honestly just a bunch of distractions and booby traps that our minds have been programmed to desire, to keep us from seeking our Father and His kingdom.
None of it does our body any real justice to obtain. So to desire these lifeless objects and treasures is basically what it means to sell your soul, you gave up your inheritance into the kingdom of heaven for things.
We know that we live here only for such a short period of time until we face the day of judgment.
You’re probably wondering HOW does this develop self-discipline?
Well if you have a desire for eternal LIFE after death, begin NOW to seek a relationship with Him (Jesus) above anything else on the face of this earth and you will be saved. It’s honestly that simple. Your mind will be renewed and saved from the fleshly desires that hold you slave.
2 things to know in the first steps toward the development of self-discipline:
Never give up!
Just as most of you wouldn’t dare to give up on your personal dreams or even your own kids (if you have them).
Be willing seek what is truly fulfilling in life.
[This is not about religion get that lie out your head, this is a spiritual relationship with the creator.]
