Hello my beautiful, welcome back and Happy Sunday!


Today I'm going to talk about self-control. What is self-control? Is the capacity that God has give us to control the decisions that we make and the dictionary definition is "The ability to control oneself, in particular one's emotions and desires or the expression of them in one's behavior, especially in difficult situations". Why is self-control important? Because if we don't have self-control then we will go through life doing what we want without thinking whether it is good or bad. It help us to make good judgments and common sense which are essentials for lives. Also, help us to keep our emotions under control. The Lord words said:

"For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 1:5-11

Which means that we have to learn self-control and consequently we achieved the other things like increases your faith, the good in things and life, the ability to persevere and be able to do and give good things like love. All of us have the ability to control ourselves, to be strong, to fight for what's good. How we can control ourselves? Well first of all you have to trust in God, you have to trust that He would give us the tools to be able to take control of our lives. Then you have to ask you:

1. What sort of things do you want?
2. How many of those things you want and what you really need?
3. How much do you want it?
4. How much enjoyment it makes you feel?
5. When you can have it?
6. How makes you feel if you don't get it?
7. How far would you be able to go?
8. It could hurt people?
9. What others think about it?
10. Does it make a balance in your life?


The people who is and have auto-control also have self-preservation, self-assertion, and self-fulfillment. What are those? The self-preservation is the ability to focus on what they need instead of what they want. The self-assertion is the ability of known their own value. When you have self-control you can make good decisions, increase the chances of success, you can control impulsive behaviors, improves focus, and promotes congruence.

I encourage you to look for auto-control and if you know someone who is struggle with having self-control help him/her. 

Have an amazing Sunday!! 😘
