Our fathers on earth disciplined us for a short time in the way they thought was best. But God disciplines us to help us, so we can become holy as he is. We do not enjoy being disciplined. It is painful at the time, but later, after we have learned from it, we have peace, because we start living in the right way. Hebrews 12: 10-11 (NCV)
I recently took a trip down memory lane when went to Marion, Illinois I had only been there a few times since the year 2000. The Lord used started something the one year that I lived there. It started when I lost my career job in television production, Through that I realized that I made production and idol. I also was not dealing with my hot temper, and took the Lords name in vain.
It was painful, because, I was interested in this field since I was a child. I was not living like a Christian, profanity is not a Christ like character. What do people think when I call myself a Christian and I have a hot temper. I know I have turned off people for the Lord.
The Lord cared enough about me to chasten me. One of the things that helped me was doing a bible reading schedule. Through that I showed the Lord that I wanted to make him number one in life. The Lord honored that and has helped me with my fatal flaws. I still have my sin issues get and have days when I blow it, but I pray and ask for the Lords help he will continue to refine me to make me more like him.
