Discipline: It's higher than habits
On the surface, that statement appears to be true. However, if you agree with that statement you are saying that diamonds are created and that simply is not true.
Diamonds are formed (not created).
The formation process occurs through pressure and heat below surface. This is the testing phase. What is being tested is our commitment and loyalty.
Like human beings, during this testing phase, grit, resilience, and high performance habits are formed.
On the surface we can appear as diamonds (aka Luminaries). But deep inside we know we have some dysfunctional beliefs that has placed a veil over our true luminescence. This is where being disciplined to submit oneself to the refinement process comes into play.
I know it's rough out there, but you are an authentic diamond in the rough.
Don't abort the process!

Patiently waiting through the refining process.
Thanks Dr Ray
Inspiring message. When we embrace challenges, we get to refine our diamond and shine a little brighter! Thanks Dr. Ray.
Excellent reminder how tension, challenges, and rough times are essential for forming deep, strong character.
Thanks Dr. Ray for this awareness. What this tells me is that my real beauty, which has been tarnished by sin, is being refined by God through tough times, but depends upon my cooperation of yieldedness.
I should not abort the process
