Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

So, I finally finished one of the books on my reading list. Yeah! One down, five to go. Let's just say I have a bad habit of trying to read too many books at once. This last book was Discipline: The Glad Surrender by Elisabeth Elliot.

It was really good and I especially liked the chapters on specific types of discipline (ie, discipline of time or discipline of feelings). I definitely underlined a lot. Hopefully, I'll be able to post some good quotes up soon. But for now I'll just leave this,

When discipline becomes a glad surrender, "Every day we experience something of the death of Jesus, so that we may also know the power of the life of Jesus in those bodies of ours."
