Psalm 1:1-3 – “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
Yes, I know, it’s way past Father’s Day and my anniversary has come and gone this year. But I just want to tell you how important Godly men have been in my life.
First, let’s look at a few attributes of a Godly man. 1) He doesn’t act like the rest of the world. He has a different set of values that he holds himself and those around him to. 2) His Bible is his rule of faith. He doesn’t look to movie stars or theologians or self help books for the answers to life’s questions. He seeks out the Word of God for questions that puzzle him. 3) He is firmly planted. You don’t have to worry if he will be there when things get tough – you already know.
I have been so blessed to have Godly men in my life. The first, of course, was my daddy. He was far from perfect, but he was all the attributes listed above and so much more. The next is my husband. He isn’t perfect either, but neither am I. We fit together like a hand in a glove. He compliments me in ways that I never dreamed possible. I remember praying for him to come into my life. I never dreamed he would mean as much to me as he does. (Love you babe!) And by marriage, I gained another Godly man, my father-in-law. When my daddy passed away, I remember telling him he had some awfully big shoes to fill because he was now the only dad I had left. He sweetly said he would do his best. Like his son, he is all the attributes above and more. Last, but not least, I have my son. He is growing to be an amazing Godly man. His love for God and others blows me away sometimes. His insight and desire to serve is heartwarming.
Now, I have many more Godly men in my life – my pastor, my brother, my church brethren and so many more. I am truly blessed.
Godly men are so very important in a woman’s life. They provide protection, love, guidance and support. I would encourage you to love on the Godly men in your life. And remember, thank God for them. For He is the One that blessed you with them in the first place!
