God Spankings

Sometimes we have to discipline our children. It's hard. We don't like to discipline them. But we discipline them because we love them. We want them to grow and learn.

But consider the joy to be corrected by God! 
Do not despise the discipline of the Almighty when you sin.
Job 5:17

Just as we discipline our children out of love, God discipline's us out of love.

We ever you receive God's discipline, or what I call God spankings, know that God is disciplining you because He loves you. He wants you to grow and learn from your mistakes and move forward. Praise Him for His discipline!

It is time for our Woman to Woman Word Filled Wednesday Link Up. We desire to connect women of God with one another and encourage each other in Christ. So grab a cup of coffee, sit back and visit a few blogs. Be encouraged and share your own stories in their comments.

Use the hashtag #w2wwordfilledwednesday! 

Three rules to this link up:
1. Must be a {Christian} faith post.
2. You must link back to W2W somewhere in your post.
3. You must visit and comment on at least one other blog in the link up.

  1. Discipline is never fun, but I have learned that it is full of blessings! You are so right - God loves us and His correction of us is because of that love. Thanks for the great reminder!

    Blessings, Joan

    1. No, never fun but definitely a blessing! Thanks for stopping in Joan!

  2. Ouch! Hate the spankings - but it's so grand to know He's paying attention to me! Good things and beauty on the other side of it because there's always hugs and loves on the flip side of the swat!

    1. Kathy, the spankings are never fun in the moment but always worth it! Thanks for stopping in!

  3. Not a fan of discipline, but I always remember that it is used by God to make me a disciple.

    And besides discipline, God allows tough circumstances so that our faith may stretch and grow. Also a painful process, but worth the JOY in the end!


    1. Sharon, it's always hard but like you said, JOY comes! Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I think this is very true. Sometimes I don't like it, but still, I need it!

    1. I don't like it at the moment either but girl we all need it! Thanks for stopping in Jen!
