Hebrews 12:5-6 (NIV) says “And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, ‘My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.’”
Note: The above reference to “son” includes both male and female.
Indeed God's discipline is his deep love for us. I believe this very much. He wants the best for us and will direct our steps to having a happy life with peace, happiness and prosperity. Thank you Bill and Teddy for sharing this awesome post in the SE community.
