truthful perceptions: fathers…

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 their children. True Fathers possess 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 often rules the day while the night orders recklessness and abandon. An arrogant table of the heart in refusing to allow the Word of God to both wisely rest and rule on top of it. This mindset parlays all monies unto wine, women and song. It 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 True 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 Real Man’s bones, and portions spiritual boldness into his heart while forever sentencing foolishness back unto it’s demonic realm of ignorance.

A wise Man will instinctively cling 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 vulnerable yet beautiful child.

True Fathers personify responsibility of their children while being an example of pure religious morality for their children. True Fathers by definition rules the appointment of dependability, practices the politics of authoritative leadership, legislates the power of invisible loving discipline and are never voted out of office.

True Fathers take charge when the devil seems large, by rebuking the beast back to the pit of hell from whence he came. A True Father 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 for 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 never deterred, declined nor defeated. 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, and 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 (1). 

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”(2).

 After years of strife, false fathers do not man up and make amends to their 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”(3).

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 four words said to them by their children that are more meaningful then any other. Those words are:

                                                     “I love you Daddy”

truthful perceptions: begin…

The best gift any Man can give to a Woman in this day and age is honesty. This can only be done by first being honest with our very own self. To daily evaluate our emotions, thoughts and experiences about the Women in our lives and to do it honestly and objectively, without any unfairness or prejudice, so that our examination will lend itself to the truth of how blessed we are as Men, to have the gift of Women amongst us.

images-46

Domestic abuse perpetrated by a man on a woman is not an act of courage, but rather one of fear, cowardice and a inner insecurity of a male embryo; a child having never grown up and now existing in an adult male body.

In having no point of reference on proper interaction with a Woman, either by a multitude of circumstances or some other deep seated incident, the first step in the necessary change of an abuser from cowardice to courage, embryo to manhood, predator to protector and from being a divider to one who brings people together is first recognizing he has a problem, and with a subsequent inner and outer confession of pain, with God’s help, we will let the healing begin.  

truthful perceptions: daggers…

img_0011-copy3

Words can cut like a knife. My Dad always told me that a woman knows she’s not as physically strong as a man, so she uses her words to make all things equal. Interesting theory but when it comes to domestic violence both men and women equally use the tongue like a steel furnished machete. 

When wielded with anger and physical intimidation words have the power to cause emotional internal bleeding and severe psychological damage. No man worth his salt as a man of integrity does this. Only woman beaters do this when he’s yelling or using hate-filled whispers to threaten and terrify his wife/intimate partner.

Possibly the worst form of verbal abuse is the silent one. The use of the silent stare which is a code that his victim interprets with a knowing fear of what is to come.

Real men use words to build up and not tear down a woman’s self-esteem. Being accountable for your words is a measure of true integrity and a yardstick of good communication skills.  As the good book say’s, “sweet water and bitter water cannot come from the same fountain…” So choose your words wisely and season them with decency. 

No matter the time or the circumstances, when you use your words towards your wife/intimate partner for positive direction, devoted encouragement and heart-opening dedication, you’re empowering a woman who will now love you to the ends of the earth. 

I believe words were created to be used wisely to build up a person’s life with both healing and dignity; not as daggers to stab and destroy their spirit.

truthful perceptions: power

 

img_0011-copy3

Change requires process and process is never a pleasant thing. Through the process leading to change we develop power. We come to learn the source of this power is from within. It takes on many forms in the virtues known as resilience, perseverance, determination, truth, wisdom, faith, prayer, confidence and so on.

 Nonetheless it is all under and connected to power and understanding that as the Master Teacher taught, “the kingdom of God is within…”

 The word power occurs in the Bible 276 times. It is a word synonymous to the name of GOD. Power is what gives us a prevailing strength over the stressors in our lives draining our positive energy.

 The great question before us is am I being decisive in finding my power? Or am I just fledging through life awaiting something grand to happen like winning the lottery…?

Within you is the Spirit of the Great Creator of the known Universe. That in and of itself is recognizable as Power. It is said that your body is your first land to conquer. Your spirit is second and your mind is third.

 When you discipline and tame the body you conquer the flesh. When you calm, poise and channel the spirit, you have now conquered the fear.

When you conquer the mind you now release the powers of creativity unbound and capable of creating worlds of reality beyond your previous imagination.

 While the grace of GOD supplies all of our needs, the power of GOD provisions all of our thoughts and creative endeavors, for as you think in your heart, so you will become.

Find, Recognize and Source Your Power Forevermore.

truthful perceptions: time…

Russel-147

A Time To Every Purpose Under The Heaven

Significant to every life is the one factor we each both possess and often find as elusive to grasp within our hands as water. The one attribute distinctive to our survival and most often abused and underestimated to the point of regret and desired reversal in any conversation of reflection upon one’s life. The vital element of constancy in bringing the singular point of synchronicity between the past, present and future synonymous to habitual human behavior, and the temporal mechanics of travel.

Time…

Besides the gift of life itself and the gift of JESUS himself, it is perhaps the greatest gift given by GOD unto humankind to both understand its brevity of nature and consistently value its purpose. Through passions of invincibility and dreams of immortality, it is a gift most undervalued and taken for granted when we are young. Through the succession of trials and tribulations that define our girth of character, the knowledge of life and it’s brevity make time a gift both treasured and overvalued, despised and feared by us in our winter years.

It is the constant to which all music must immortally sway, the eternal ocean for the longevity of a beautifully painted portrait and the executioner to both a dancers skill and they’re gradual diminishing expertise of the same. Time eventually overwhelms the physical prowess of every athlete and out boxes the sweet science of every pugilist from his or her championship title.

Over the ages what billions of Souls through it’s seas have come, and yet billions more into it’s abyss of eternity will eventually enter. With the emblem of an eternity at stake it is no wonder that as time goes by, the older one gets the more inclined he or she is to invoke wisdom into there daily life.

At least that’s the way it should work. Yet, what if it doesn’t happen? The lessons of time are invariably apt to supersede our cognizance to apply the practical wisdom it teaches. Time waits for no one, and we are quickly running out of it.

truthful perceptions: architect…

IMG_3225 copy

Every architect dreams to create the finest and tallest building for the entire world to behold. Every building engineer dreams to unfold the quasar of their imagination after years of dedicated study in school and countless engineering schematics and model diagrams. The one common denominator shared by these persons of creativity the world over is the shared biblical principle of their occupation.

That principle is that you must first have a solid foundation. Regardless to how much money, manpower, city permits, and insurance cost for the massive project it may require, they first started with the geological analysis of the proposed area of land for a solid foundation of their creation.

As the architects and building engineers of our own lives, we too require a precise and self-perceptible analysis conducive to a solid foundation that remains impervious to spiritually violent weather, flexible to extenuating circumstances and immune to human ridicule. One that is secure to both the earthquakes of our wrong choices and obedient to the inner vocal calls to stop the madness of our journey. A solid foundation irrespective of what torrential rains or typhoon floods may lash upon it and will still continue to stand undeterred.

The foundation I speak of is the confidence of the human Spirit in concert with the power of the human Voice believing in our inherent God given ability to succeed over adversity. Separately these entities are dynamic, yet limited in both scope and nature. Thus it is logical to presume that GOD through wisdom created both to harness the strength of each other not simply for the benefit of the body, but rather the whole earthly life of the Soul.

Learn to preach the power of the human spirit, minister the invincibility of our Lord & Savior JESUS Christ and daily practice His message for us to sincerely love one another, as we genuinely love ourselves.

truthful perceptions: character…

IMG_0011 copy

Real men court, date, become engaged to and marry integrity for a lifetime. Fake/abusive men have already divorced themselves from the possibility of even knowing who she is.

You can never step up as a Man, if you’re knocking down a Woman. You can never improve yourself as a Man, if you’re verbally abusing a Woman. You can never better yourself as a person and advance inspirational thoughts in others, by destroying the life of a Woman.

Integrity is a lifestyle, not a choice. It is not a demand, but a dialect of human language invisibly spoken in the form of a selfless love and respect for all life, especially the life of your wife/intimate partner. Most men have integrity genetically encoded in their DNA and will absolutely protect and defend all life. They never abuse women and behave as a moral leader in their home and at the workplace.

Integrity speaks loudest through your actions, not your words. Not your frequency to make promises, but rather through your actions as a Man in keeping them. Though a Man may fall a thousand times, if he is a Man of integrity, the world will always lift him up.

It’s not the size of the headstone on a grave that determines the significance of the person buried, but the number of people who come and desire to come to pay their respects. What man has never stopped to reflect on how he wishes to be remembered long after he has left this Earth?

Integrity insures your legacy to be one that is spoken of with endearing love and respect from your children and creates a lasting impact on everyone that loves you for the rest of their lives.  

Let your recognition to be so closely aligned with integrity that others will use it among the first descriptive words when speaking of you. Let your character be so undivided to integrity that liars even become inspired to change their ways because of your influence.

Integrity is not a fanciful notion, but a dutiful necessity to this thing called life. She gives you everything that is noble, nurturing and noticeable to those around you. She plays no favorites and will expose you as a fraud should you desire to cheat on her. 

You simply cannot possess Integrity and be an abuser of Women at the same time. BUT as a Man, you can be ever loved, respected, protected and cherished by those who love you, through having true and lasting integrity.

truthful perceptions: impact…

IMG_3502

It is to the expectation of God’s daily delight that we would earnestly seek through sacrifice, devotion and dedication to replicate the mind of JESUS. For in so doing we are of one mind distinctly innate to one core set of values based on the precepts, principles and edicts of His message of love.

Yet, we must allow this love to be seasoned fluently with humility to the edifying of one another through encouragement and support of what goals and talents we each possess for the greater good of the whole. This notion does not call upon us to negate nor deny our own individual abilities, but rather seek to affirm our own God-given inner knowledge that we are neither forgotten nor set aside in God’s eyes.

For His Word say’s that He will never leave us nor forsake us-1 Kings 8:57. This practice of lifting up each other higher than our self is for the benefit of the greater mind of God to unfold the mystery of His Will towards us. By loving our neighbor as we love our self, the ensuing equation is harmony, justice and respect for every one in the community of humanity.

This attitude slowly absorbs us into that spirited mind of Christ we seek. An arrogant mind surveys the landscape seeking what minds it contrives as weaker than its own, in order to indignantly dominate through insidiously demanding, what can you do for me?

Whereas the Christ-centered mind will always endeavor upon what things it must and can do unto others as the servant of God.

Neither sheepishly or in subservience to man but rather, in a dignified contemplation of transforming, that which is evil to make good, that which is abhorrent to make pure, and that which is of none effect to glean enlightenment, in truthful knowledge of their value in order to make a positive impact.
