We are our best father when we have our best brothers with us. And so we need those guys and those are the guys that you came in and went rafting with, you know, with me… Those are those guys in my life and we need our brothers. But then also sometimes we need someone else who’s on the outside who’s got some training is a professional in some ways to come along side to create a safe space for a child to unfold.
How we deal with the hurt and wounds of our own father’s failures, determines our ability to be good fathers and mothers to our own children.
The measurement of a good father is not based upon the behavior and outcome of the children. The measurement of the good father is, does he reflect God, the father, and the character and the heart that all of his children would be in relationship with him at home.”
Living intentionally in the same direction over an extended period of time will have a greater impact on your children than anything you could possibly say.
“I just have a path of intentionality that sets up the odds in your favor. And again, you can’t control your son’s heart, but you can fight for it. And this is a plan to fight for your son’s future. And I believe that when we do that, we activate the heart of God’s divine favor comes through our way, the Holy Spirit, gets involved and we’re not on our own. And without it, I think you’re left to chance and you’re left to the world.”
“You pass on who you are more than what you know you want to be the whole, the most whole, healed, healthy in every sense of the word, man that you can pass on.”
The pain of our past has stolen our FREEDOM and we are looking through the little rearview mirror and over our shoulder at what should be behind us. The windshield of your life needs to be so much BIGGER than the rearview mirror… Experience the healing that your Heavenly Father wants for you.
“You know, Martin Luther King said rioting, rioting comes as the voice of the unheard. And, you know, if your kids are trying to share with you and you’re not listening, you’re too busy. They’re rioting.”
One thing I learned is you can’t just set the goal, like you got to reverse engineer it and figure out what are the daily habits that are going to get you to those goals. And that’s where the magic happens. That’s where the hard work habits. And that really is the key to going after those goals.
Every move we make, every risk we take sets the stage for someone else. Your brave is someone else’s breakthrough.
