Hello all!!! Its been a while since I have posted, I’ve had some much need Godtime, ya know, spending time with Him, and how awesome it is that He loves us!! Just a little update, I am finally working on my résumé and getting it out to some hopeful employers next week. When I was laid off in May I decided to take a couple of months off to just be still and listen to God, and boy has He been speaking. That’s always a wonderful thing when God speaks and we can actually hear Him, but the trick is to do what He says. I have followed the news lately, different news outlets and blogs and I have realized this important truth: This world of ours needs Jesus more than ever. The one thing I am passionate about as some of you may know is learning how to be a Godly man, a courageous man and put those two together and hopefully a Godly, courageous husband and father.
We just finished up our 8 week courageous bible study and here’s a quote I want to share from the book The Resolution for Men: When you break it all down and track it all back, the key to any man’s success–as a husband, a father, and everything else—-is his own personal walk with God.
This pathetic society tells us to work hard, go to school, get good grades and you will be a success. Those are all fine and dandy but the one truth that everyone needs to know and understand, if it’s not done for the glory of God, its worth nothing, period. Schools give us an education and training for a career, but who trains us to be a real man and a real father? Who teaches us to stand up for whats right and good and who shows us how to really treat a woman? In my opinion, only the one who created the heavens and the earth. I really get fired up about this topic because I see so many men, who thin their men, but in actuality their only a child still sucking their thumb. How in the hell can you lead your family if your on the couch playing video games all day? You can’t!
When the so-called men in this country, who are actually boys in a mans body decide to take a stand for Christ, and become the men they were called to be and develop their own walk with God, then and only then will we see change. A walk built on Christ, one that shouts out to all the world by your actions alone that you’re a Christian and you settle for nothing less than the best, that’s when we see change. The old “John Wayne” days are over, you cannot pull yourself up by your boot straps because you’re the only one pulling. We have to let Christ live in us and develop a strong walk with Him, then and only then do we go from pathetic sperm donors sitting on the couch playing video games to true “MEN OF HONOR.”
