Inside out

Inside out
I desired to speak but I needed the discipline to listen
I desired to lead but needed the discipline to follow
My desire was to teach but needed the discipline to learn

I desired a bigger house but needed the discipline to keep a home
I desired a promotion but needed the discipline of integrity
My desire was to have authority but needed the discipline of service

I loved the idea of being teachable but needed the discipline of application
I loved to say yes to chores but needed the discipline of commitment
My love was to meet people but needed the discipline of keeping relationships

I desired  to have company but needed to manage my solitude
I wanted more but needed the discipline of gratitude
I desired to be joined but needed to find myself

Then I realised all my desires are external but my needs are internal
I needed to manage my standing and my walk before I can perfect my jump. My biggest desire is to be a disciple, a very noble thing, I just need the act of being disciplined . After all there is a disciple in the disciplined.
