Praise GOD: True Fathers protect from all enemies, provide for all seasons and immerse themselves in constant prayer as it pertains to all things both good and godly for there children; Fathers envelope a singleness of mind, a singularity of Soul and elect themselves unto sacred and eternal humility before God for the gift(s) of their children;
As a bachelor, selfishness rules the day while the night orders recklessness and abandon; An indestructible table of heart that allows not the Word of God to rest on top of it; This mindset parlays all monies unto wine, women and song; Cradles the basket of lustful whims through youthful charms and dares eternity to a challenge of longevity, arrogantly believing that he will win;
However, when Fatherhood arrives waters of maturity divide the seas of wisdom to bring forth a mighty charge of God; The clouds above then pour forth rains of sensibility that strengthens the very marrow of a man’s bones, portions spiritual boldness into his heart and forever sentences foolishness back unto it’s demonic realm of ignorance;
A wise Man will instinctively adhere to this mark of God’s call, and like an eagle perched high on a mountain will begin to fix his eyes with laser like precision on the fragile and vulnerable future of his child;
True Fathers personify responsibility of their children while exemplifying pure religious morality for there children; True fathers by definition commandeer the appointment of dependability, practice the politics of authoritative leadership, legislate the power of invisible loving discipline and are never voted out of office;
True Fathers take charge when the devil seems large; rebukes it back to the pit of hell, validates his faith through works and never allows his children go either hungry or astray;
Fatherhood transcends race and religions, neutralizes nationalities and bonds wise men to a common cause; True fathers are soldiers fighting on the front lines of stability in the trenches of the war of fear, of what the future may hold for his children;
He is in the army of many millions, yet impersonates none on this battlefield of singular distinction; Though bombs of indecision, mortars of his child’s sickness and mortal rocket fire target the very essence of his compassionate manhood, his mission is neither deterred nor declined; Whether a world away or tangibly with his child everyday; A true Father is a soldier who is never M.I.A. (missing in action);
I witnessed my daughter as a baby girl; Precious and adorable; Vulnerable and fragile and with my mission clear, my heart always steered itself in eternal vigilance to her cause; The deal was sealed with her first utterance of the word “Daddy”; I witnessed my son as a baby boy; Smiling and playful, always laughing in his cradle; Tiny fists with baby bottle in hand, letting everyone know that he is the Man-child who is a Conqueror, a King who will be more than equipped and able to lead;
True Fathers set the positive example of Masculine-Tender love for his children, by virtue of how he treats their Mother; His behavior sets the mental and spiritual template for there perception of a future spouse;
From the daughters perception of a Man always gentle and true, loving and kind, protectively loyal and faithfully devoted unto his wife, to the son’s positive example of a Man who is never psychologically, verbally, emotionally or physically abusive to his wife; Rather, in addition to being a provider, prayer warrior and protector, that he loves his wife as Christ also loves the church and gave himself for it;
False fathers plead the perverted fifth on the grounds that they never inseminated anyone; False fathers lust selfishly of themselves before they think of their children; False fathers offend God and there own children who believe in JESUS;
JESUS said, “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea”; After years of strife, false fathers do not man up and make amends to there adult children; False fathers make excuses, abide in lies and foolishly believe that they can escape God’s judgment; False fathers do not know what genuine love is;
True Fathers proudly step up and parent a child even if that child is not biologically his; True Fathers always place their children’s needs and well-being first; True Fathers hear the Word of God, “Fathers provoke not your children to wrath, but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”;
After years of strife, true fathers humble themselves and repent, seeking reconciliation and restoration with their adult children; True Fathers take responsibility, work hard, abide in truth and continually bless their children with wisdom, guidance and unconditional grace, mercy and love;
True Fathers know what genuine love is; Which is why they overwhelmingly cherish these four words said to them from their children, that are more meaningful than any other;
