Do I have what it takes?
John Eldridge in his book Wild At Heart talks about this being the question every boy asks. The answer will direct boys into being men with a capable confidence or men who are unsure and fearful.
Which kind of man are you?
Growing up I didn’t feel I had what it took to do anything of significance.
I became a man who lacked confidence and was fearful of trying things that I didn’t know how to do, my fear kept me from asking to learn, so everything scared me.
I lived in a constant state of fear of being found out as someone who didn’t belong.
God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love and sound mind 2 Timothy 1:7
Yesterday I changed the battery on my car by myself, small thing to the man who was raised with confidence, for me it was a break through moment.
It was an "I have what it takes" moment.
I know there are more and more men out there who are still asking the same question they were as eight-year-old boys and finding the answer the same at every turn.
As Christian men, we have the responsibility to find them and to build them up in such a way that their question is answered in a way that spurs them toward the high call that God has put on their life.
How is the question answered?
Masculinity is bestowed in the company of other men.
It takes a man to show a man he’s a man.
The world is full of fear-filled men who lack confidence.
As Christian men, we have the reasonability to find them and to build them up in such a way that their question is answered in a way that spurs them toward the high call that God has put on their life.
There is a company of men I have surrounding me who are bestowing masculinity upon me from their strength and I am bestowing to them from mine.
If you are a man in this world you need other men around you life is too hard to walk alone you need a band of brothers.
