Speaking Louder Than Words: “Be A Force Of Nature!”

IMG_1780Have you ever heard the saying, “Be A Force Of Nature!”? Think of the image that statement brings to your mind… of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc… Things unstoppable and powerful! We all have that power to create change in our lives if we truly want it for ourselves.

God has put on my heart a clear and defining purpose for my life and for my many roles I play. For years I have stumbled along with no clear vision or obvious direction. I truly, with deep thought and conviction have decided to take responsibility for the many components of my life.

‘Now’ is the time I can change… not the past, or even the future that’s not even here yet.

My goal here is to lay out my purpose in a simple and meaningful way so that I empower myself (and possibly others) to new levels of effectiveness as a husband, father, friend, entrepreneur, and follower of Christ. Only with God’s loving grace and power will I stay on course and continue to focus on these vital goals. I know that this is about ‘my great journey,’ not merely the destination, because I’m fully aware that I will never completely arrive or be perfect. I’m definitely a work in progress!

Part 1: My Purpose As A Father

My purpose as a father is to model and teach responsibility, to show love and acceptance and a non-judgmental attitude in the process of teaching and disciplining my boys; raising up my boys in action and word to know God’s Truth.

Why would I want to do all this?

  • To build a strong, long-lasting relationship with them.
  • To establish a trusting and loving relationship with them.
  • To keep communication open now and in the future with them.
  • To help them build a personal relationship with Christ and to help them recognize the Truth vs. The Lies in the world.
  • To equip them with the necessary life skills to live happy, productive lives. This includes teaching about how to be a wise husband, dad, friend, worker, or leader.

How will I accomplish this rewarding task?

By…

  • Spending quality time with my boys.
  • Raising my personal awareness of being 100% present with them when I’m around them… not distracted by all the other things that can easily cloud my mind. Truly wanting to listen to them and be an active listener.
  • Continuing to study, pray, and discuss the Bible with them.
  • Read great books on this topic. Listen and learn from great teachers and leaders in regards to being a great father.
  • Talk and learn from other dads.

Now it’s time to create my action plan. This will include what I’ll do and when.

  • One to two times per week I’ll take my boys someplace special; focusing on the 3 of us interacting and bonding.
    • Activity Ideas: hiking, playing at a park, to a restaurant, a drive, bike ride, going for a walk, playing a game in the yard.
  • Individually spend time with them: playing, homeschooling, reading, playing a game, chasing, wrestling, pretending, sharing old stories about me or mom or our families
  • Praying with them each night before bed, giving thanks for our favorite things of the day, blessing and praying for others.
  • Eating sit-down meals together as a whole family each morning and/or at dinner.
  • Model beneficial characteristics of a father and husband through words and actions.
  • Be approachable with problems or concerns daily.
  • Openly share how proud I am of them and how much I love them each day.
  • Plan fun family events at home or away: vacations, camping, hikes, BBQs, playdates, outings.
  • Read and talk about God’s word. Ask about what they’re learning in homeschool or at church each week. Share what I know and believe.

Part 2: My Purpose As A Husband

My purpose as a husband is to love and cherish my wife Kelly, support her in the planning of homeschooling or home programs for our boys, partner with her on managing the various responsibilities  around the home, have open and honest communication… being transparent with her in my life, be her spiritual leader in our home, encourage her to pursue the things that bring joy and happiness to her.

Why would I want to do all this?

  • To bond and build a deep and meaningful relationship with her.
  • To establish a trusting and loving relationship with her.
  • To keep communication open with her; mutual trust.
  • To partner in our relationships with Christ and to support each other with this journey.

How will I accomplish this rewarding task?

By…

  • Being aware of where my mind is when I’m around Kelly; being more ‘present’ with her.
  • Listening, reading, and learning about what it takes to be a good spouse.
  • Talking to other husbands that have great relationships with their wives.
  • Making the decision to and wanting to change.
  • Looking for the opportunities to encourage her and lift her up.
  • Smiling when I’m around her; not be so serious.

Now it’s time to create my action plan. This will include what I’ll do and when.

  • Set aside time in my day to talk and listen to Kelly.
  • Stick with our agreed schedule of activities for each day.
  • Communicate my concerns, celebrations, thoughts, needs, and wants with her.
  • Schedule dates and quality time together.
  • Show affection with her when I leave the house and when saying goodnight.
  • Help with dishes, garbage, with the boys, etc… without being asked; anticipate her need for help.
  • Show appreciation and surprise her occasionally because I want to and because I love her.

Now friends, the reason I’m sharing this all with you is not to show you my plans but to show you how to go after your goals and dreams with a plan… AND TO TAKE ACTION!!

Just plug in your goals and use this format to make the changes you want to in your life. I know you can do it… I know it won’t always be easy, but you can revisit your words, evaluate your progress, have an accountability partner in the process, and live the life you were meant to live.

Just For Today

Family cuddling.I just started reading this to myself (with the goal of living it) each day to focus on my most important priorities and not get caught up in the busy-ness of life. You can copy and edit it for your own daily mindset.

Just for today…

1. I will trust God; deepen and live out my faith.
2. I will choose to display a joyful and right attitude.
3. I will tangibly love and respect my wife.
4. I will care for my family and home.
5. I will learn, know and practice healthy living.
6. I will practice and develop positive thinking.
7. I will support my wife as she manages the home and schools our children.
8. I will determine and act upon important priorities.
9. I will initiate and invest in solid relationships.
10. I will plan for and model generosity.
11. I will embrace and practice good values established in God’s Word.
12. I will seek and experience improvement.

I will manage these decisions JUST FOR TODAY. Some day soon, I will see the compounding results of several days lived well!

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness.
For His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil’
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
Forever.

Psalm 37:3-5

Trust the LORD, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the LORD, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.

Many Blessings,
Kary
