A godly father is…

5 Jul

One who is loving.

One who is kind.

One who is wise.

One who is selfless.

One who is faithful.

One who is patient.

One who never stops working.

One who is Christlike.

One who is teachable.

One who teaches.

One who serves as a future-husband model.

One who, “[Does] not provoke [his] children to anger, but bring[s] them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 6:4)

And, if you’re me….he’s one who is awfully funny.

That’s a godly father. That’s my father.

Dad (looking at my new wedge sandals): “Do you know why nude shoes are so popular? Kate Middleton. Just read it in a Comcast headline.”

Uh-huh.

Ladies, hold out for a man who makes this his prayer

9 Jun

I look around and see my wonderful life
Almost perfect from the outside
In picture frames, I see my beautiful wife
Always smiling, but on the inside

Oh, I can hear her saying

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, but what about us?

Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

I see their faces, look in their innocent eyes
They’re just children from the outside
I’m working hard, I tell myself they’ll be fine
They’re independent, but on the inside

Oh, I can hear them saying

Lead me with strong hands
Stand up when I can’t
Don’t leave me hungry for love
Chasing dreams, what about us?

Show me you’re willing to fight
That I’m still the love of your life
I know we call this our home
But I still feel alone

So Father, give me the strength
To be everything I’m called to be

Oh Father, show me the way
To lead them

Won’t You lead me?

To lead them with strong hands
To stand up when they can’t
Don’t want to leave them hungry for love
Chasing things that I could give up

I’ll show them I’m willing to fight
And give them the best of my life
So we can call this our home
Lead me ’cause I can’t do this alone

Father, lead me ’cause I can’t do this alone

(Lead Me – Sanctus Real)
