Thinking about my future daughter and family

I want to be a great example for my children.

I want to teach my daughter what kind of man she is to acknowledge as a man worthy of her hand in marriage in her life.  I love her so much already.  I want to model today who her future man of God can be by grace in God, in in the light of Christ.  I am so excited about having a daughter and am speechless!  I want her to know freedom in every way God designed it.

In the future if we have a son, I want to teach my son to have this attitude:  that the level to which God will exalt you will be determined by the way you decide to treat the women in your life.  I believe God teaches us to humble ourselves every day through the relationships we have with our opposites.  We pour out our love and respect to God as we love and respect him or her in our lives.

I feel it is not my job to observe those who have been exalted despite this fact of how they treated others, but I feel my job is to have my children strive for purity in their lives and the love of others at a level greater than I or my wife even their parents had ever known.  I mean purity not in a sense of all the things they are not to do, but all of the ways God ALONE can be praised in their lives.  Not to mention all of the testimonies and stories they can have of why God is so much better than all these others superficial things.  I want my children to know the testimonies of God's grace, His grace in me and my wife, Kayla and our families.  I want them to know the stories of How Great is Our God.

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
