Spirit of Power, of Love and of Self Discipline

2 Timothy    1:7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

Does the Spirit of God Live in You? He put the Holy Spirit in you and if you truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ you have the Amazing Power, Love & Self Discipline to make Life Simply Amazing!

I've read this passage before and yet when I came back to this passage for no other reason that I was drawn to it that I really took the powerful message that it had to share for what I do in my life. When I coach people it comes down to motivation. I give that to people. What Trumps me Every Single Time is the Holy Spirit!  The Amazing Holy Spirit after all is what allows me to even help you and thousands of others to find motivation too. It whirls inside me. 

Let the Holy Spirit stop you from being Timid. Timid means you lack courage or confidence. How often do you feel that way when it comes to making drastic changes in your life. When it comes to food & fitness we are filled with doubt, fear and getting uncomfortable is not an easy feeling for many.  What if YOU alone are not meant to fight that fight.  Is that not Amazing that God already knows this? He knows we can't do it alone. We can try and many of us can possibly succeed, but how well, for how long? Many of you won't succeed at all. Yet if we stop being so Timid and really rely on our Holy Spirit and the Power the Lord Gave to us all then we could Really Move Mountains! 

The Holy Spirit gives us Love. How well are you loving yourself today? It's amazing and beautiful and love others before ourselves. The Lord wants us to do that! Yet he still wants you to love yourself too!  Let the Holy Spirit Flow inside you and learn to love yourself more! 

The Holy Spirit gives us Self Discipline! Self discipline is about giving yourself rules to follow and a code of conduct on how you treat yourself. Self discipline should first take place with the Lord. That includes diligent prayers, scripture reading and faithfulness to the covenants he has set up for us.  Lastly after disciplining yourself to your husband, children and you discipline yourself for yourself.  The ability to take care of yourself if fully given to you by the Holy Spirit. 

The Holy Spirit is such an Amazing Gift! Thank You God for this! With it you allow us to Amazing Power, Love and Self Discipline so that we can be all that you want us to be! In your name Jesus!
