Father to the Fatherless
Becoming a man is a lifelong process. It doesn’t have an endpoint on this side of Heaven. That’s not to discourage you, it’s to give you hope. It’s never too late to get started because we all have a journey ahead of us. You can’t make progress on something that you never get started on. Manhood is not for the faint of heart. It’s for those who are ready to step up to the challenge of leadership and service. It’s deciding to put the needs of your family before yours. But for some of us that is as foreign to us as speaking French. When you don’t have someone in your life that can show you what it looks like to be a man, a leader, a husband, and a father, it’s like shuffling your way in the dark. And with all of the overwhelming statistics that are presented, that is the case for so many boys and young men in America. So, what do we do? Do we allow these statistics to define how we can, and should, grow into men? Are we doomed to fail before we start? Psalm 68:5-6 5 Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. 6 God settles the solitary in a home; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. God provides us with the tools and direction to become the men He has called us to be. Our pasts can’t be changed but our futures are in the hands of God. It won’t be easy but it’s possible to be who God says you are. God has not forgotten about you but He’s waiting for you to admit you need HIM. Fellas, we need God to help us be the men that are needed in our homes, communities, and in our nation. It’s not good enough to say you don’t know if you aren’t trying to find out. God is more than able to give you the tools you need to do better, to be better. There are men out there that can help walk alongside you in this journey to manhood. You don’t have to settle for mediocre manhood when there is a call on your life for Biblical manhood. If you’re looking for someone to partner with you on this journey, hit me up. I got you bro!
