40 Days of "s.e.l.f. c.o.n.t.r.o.l."

I am about to enter in to a new phase of this journey and I’m so excited about what the Lord has next. I believe the Lord is planning out seasons for these next t.w.o. years of my life. Always to mature me, and make me more like Him - the continual process called life. To teach me how to serve and lead in greater ways. The time frame for these seasons or months of my life may not make sense to me... Some seasons will be shorter, some will be longer, but each will have purpose. In the end, the Lord will reveal new things about Himself, as well as manifest the fruits of the Spirit through me in new ways... Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control (Galatians 5).

Chapter 1: The last six months (DTS) have been a lesson on self-control.

While the Lord is teaching me self control on many different levels, He challenged me today in one particular area - what I love to consume.

Tomorrow I start a 40 Day "s.e.l.f. c.o.n.t.r.o.l." fast. I will abstain myself from coffee, chocolate and sugar/sweets. It's not about health (although an amazing benefit) but rather about the Lord taking me to a deeper understanding of what self control looks like.

It's crazy.
It's me.
This is my life.


  1. I love you so much and am so proud of what you are doing. You have been such a blessing to me over the past 6 months and I consider it a priviledge to have had this time. You are and will continue to do great things for God. You my dear are changing this world. God will honor your sacrifice and commitment to self-control!! I LOOOOOOVE YOU DINZIL!!;P
