Devotions & Discipline


Early at dawn
Daily as time moves on
Diligently, don’t laze, keep on
Consistently, you can, so go on.

Deny yourself early, in the morn.
Deny yourself daily, on and on.
Deny yourself diligently, till its done.
Deny yourself consistently, till life’s gone.

Yield yourself early, before the sun.
Yield yourself daily, just like the Son
Yield yourself diligently, all distractions shun
Yield yourself consistently, by the Spirit, not brawn.

Jim Elliot said, ‘He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.’

The unwavering commitment to God’s word (reading, study, meditation, memorisation) and prayer (confession, adoration, thanksgiving, supplication) is the rewarding investment for a full and satisfying life.
