Seriously. I don’t know where I would be right now if I didn’t have God in my life.
Just thinking about His love makes me happy
When things go and get rough, remember that God doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle. When the burdens of life seems as if they are too much for you to handle, give them to God. Do your best and God will take care the rest. God brought you to it and He will bring you through it. Don’t give up. Keep pushing until the end. God doesn’t take us out of things, He brings us through them. Remember: With God, anything is possible.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
- Philippians 4:13
Christianty life is tough, but it makes you stronger. Its challenging but prepares us. It takes a long time for certain things or certain people to come. but patience heals us. Its a bumpy ride but the driver (God) knows where he is going. it may be directions you dont want, turns you dont want to take, you may want to pull over, drive slow, or drive fast… but in the end ITS WORTH THE TRIP..
A real man is not ashamed to declare his love for God above all things.
A real man conveys on a daily basis how valuable his wife is to him by his actions, his words, and his prayer life.
A real man puts his wife slightly above his children:
1. Because that is and will always be his lifelong partner and best friend
2. Because its sets a noble example for children to aspire to in adulthood.
A real man works hard at his vocation so that his wife does not have to…in that same vain…a real man sacrifices external successes, status, symbols, and position for less things in life so he and his children can have a whole wife and mother.
A real man seeks to serve.
A real man cries in front of his children, readily admits and exposes his weaknesses/mistakes so that his wife and children don’t always feel like they have to be perfect.
A real man isn’t afraid to hug other real men.
A real man trusts in God to provide for him and freely gives back in the form of time, money, and spiritual gifts.
A real man admits when he is wrong and apologizes to the person he has offended.
A real man forgives immediately when someone has the guts to say they are sorry and doesn’t later rub in their faults.
A real man always is alert for teachable moments with his children.
A real man keeps himself in good shape to:
1. Show his wife he still thinks enough of her not to let himself go
2. To show his children the same.
A real man is proactive and takes complete ownership of his actions blaming only himself for his misgivings.
A real man holds his wife’s hand in public, opens her car door, and still brings her flowers twenty years after he met her.
A real man kisses his wife and hugs her first when he walks in the door.
A real man takes the time to ask and not assume.
When a real man has to be critical, he criticizes the behavior, never the person.
A real man avoids situations that might question his integrity or character.
Don’t settle for anything less than a real man
This is what I aspire to be.
A Man of God.
