i just wanted to share this great article i found today about marriage, spiritual leadership, and what that can look like in our everyday lives. so good.
here's the link. hope you enjoy!
some favorite quotes from the piece:
To a woman, that is spiritual leadership. When you take the initiative, when you make the suggestion, when you say it first… something inside of her falls more deeply in love with you. A woman admires a man who alerts her to focus on God. Respect grows, not because you’re perfect, but because you recognize who is and you love her enough to point her back to Jesus.
If you will initiate and remind and pray with her… she will respond.
She can’t help it. A woman’s feelings of love and attraction are so tied to her feelings of respect that she cannot separate the two. And nothing elicits the respect of a Jesus-following woman like a man who is bold enough to grab her hand and say, with Paul,
“Follow me, as I follow Christ.” (1Cor 11:1)
it’s funny how we met on the telephone
you and i on the edge of the unknown
oh, in only a moment’s time
i knew my heart was yours and yours was mine
when i saw you waiting at your place
something felt familiar in your face
oh, you smiled as if to say
i knew my heart was yours from the first day
Always make her feel beautiful. Always lovely. Always worth fighting for. She’ll remember that when she grows older and want to find that in God. Make it easy for her to feel loved by God. I want it to be easy for my daughter(s) to loved by God because they’ve had experienced it though their pops. Lets lead the way felllas.
