Repetition.

I can hear Charlene (from my turbo jam workouts) saying, “repetition breeds results”.

So true, I can already see the ways He is making me more like Him and bringing me so close to Him.  He is strengthening me.

The discipline and chastising I am experiencing right now does not come from the evil one, my God has more power and control than him, my learning is coming from my Perfect Father who loves me.

Hebrews 12:6 “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.”

He is using all sorts of things in this lesson {Beautiful godly friends, bible study, situations, sermons, books, blogs, advice I gave to someone else that now I have to adhere to, quiet time reading, His dear dear promises and sometimes the same verses showing up in different ways}

For example- Psalm 73:25 “Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.”

Check out this awesome sermon on His discipline.

In talking about our roles as biblical woman last night at bible study, I was reminded that in every role I try to fit in or even that Christ has ordained for me as a woman, I am to act like HIM. 

So, through my trials and chastising, I will act like Him, it’s only by His grace that I can.  Here are a few ways I’ll try, hold me to em! 😉

  • I will be merciful because He is merciful.
  • I will be humble because He is humble.
  • I will be kind because He is kind.
  • I will longsuffer because He longsuffers.
  • I will (try to  be) be slow to anger because He is slow to anger.
  • I will forgive because He forgives.
  • I will love because He is love.
  • I will sacrifice because He did.
  • I will even comfort because He comforts.

I am seeing Him like never before.  I am seeing His purpose, in all things, and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13

I am not not taking anything lightly, I dont want repetition of the same thing…

I want repetition of acting like Christ in all areas of my life with all people in my life, and I want to teach others how to repeat.

 “repetition breeds results”, results will be peace and righteousness and so much more!
