Where Are All the Godly Men At?
Recently I’ve discovered “hashtags!” This is funny, I tagged the word “godly” in a tweet on our Twitter account, and 80% off the tweets that were posted under the tag “godly” said “where are all the godly men at?” Then I did a Google search on the question. And I realized there were more girls than me who were wondering the เที่ยวไหนดี
same thing. So where are all the Godly Men at?
Well in answer to that question, I wrote this article.
The answers in all the articles I found were about how pastors, mentors or parents could “fix the men” and their problem by talking to the boys and men, about how to help them. The rest of the articles were how girls could find a Christian guy. The whole time I was thinking to myself “those poor guys!”
If we are to help the men at all, girls will need to respect the men and treat them like men. We cannot go on asking them “why aren’t you godlier?” this only demeans them and robs them of respect and honor. The question alone hurts and weakens our boys and men. We must make them feel needed and make them feel strong. We will need to step down from the commanding feminist role women have been so long engaged in and give the leading role back to the men who are under God and God alone.
Every good Christian girl is wondering, “Where are the manly men in this world?” “Are there men out there besides the high-school boys who are just after drama and media?” “Are there men who love the Lord and want to raise a family like me, and if so, than where are they?”
Well girls, I’m sorry I have to be the one to break the news to you, but it’s not the boys that are missing. It’s you. What? Bear with me. Godly men are out there, but it’s not up to you to find them. It’s not up to you to know where they are. It’s not even your place to ask where they are! Because, by asking, you are failing the test; the test of faith given to all single girls by God asking them to entrust their hearts and futures into His wise and all powerful hands.
Would you be able to trust God with your future? With your relationship? With your life?
It might be that you are not called or meant to be married. It’s up to God.
I know a story of a beautiful young lady who was my Pastors sister. She was a missionary and loved the Lord. She trusted him with her future and didn’t know if she would be married at all. But she didn’t care because she knew God had a plan. And not until she was 39 did God bring the right man into her life and was able to be married.
And you say, “Well I want a Taylor Swift- Love Story kind of relationship, only with a Christian guy, who looks like a One Direction singer” (or whoever you fantasize yourself with).
Girls, sometimes-most of the time, that’s not real life. When are you going to embrace real life? Step out of Barbie drama world and open your eyes. Life is with God! Life is with your family! Life is here and now.
When it all comes down, the real question is not “where are all the godly men at?” It’s “Where/who are the girls placing their hopes in these days?” Are they placing their hopes in boys who act more boyish than manly? Are they placing their hope in someone who will save them from their boring lives at home? Are they placing their hope in a future “dream career?”
Or are they placing their hope in God and on things above?
Ladies, in the Bible Jesus says: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things.” And “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matt 6:33-34, 21
