Yesterday our pastor spoke about being disciplined. He said “Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most.”

That quote resonates with me. I can’t stop thinking about it.

Sometimes reaching a goal seems impossible…whether it be losing weight, saving money or if you’re a student: making good grades.

We are constantly seduced by the quick return, the things we want now.

I’m going on a cruise this summer. I’ve been trying to diet and eat better. Get back into my exercising routine. It’s been hard.

I desperately want to have pizza with my friends. In the mornings, I want to sleep in a little longer (rather than go to the gym). In the evenings, I want to go straight home from work (rather than go to the gym). All of these things are things I want now. None of them have long term benefits…

So when I heard this quote,


something shifted. I'm motivated. I'm ready to accomplish what I want most!

Don’t you love it when the pastor speaks directly to you? I just know that sermon (heard by thousands of people) was meant for me! :-)  God is good, all the time.

Anyway, I thought some of you might be able to relate (after all, it’s almost a month since New Year’s).   

Just a little reminder to keep it up! Say no to the things you want now!
