Inspirational Thoughts

 Inspirational Thoughts on

Being a Dad.


Thoughts to bless your life and your family.


 A Monday through Saturday devotional


Think about it:

Your family needs you to choose to be strong.

- -

Families never crumble in a day.

It's a slow fade.




Dear Lord,

I am dedicating myself to saying "no"
to harmful things in my life.


I will make choices that protect myself
and my family.

I will make good decisions for myself
and for my family
every day.

I pray this in the powerful name
of my Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ,

Amen

Monday 


Thank you, Lord,

for delivering me from what is holding me back!



Every father wants to be a better dad.

I encourage you to ask God to guide

your thoughts on

how to grow in being a dad and how to make a

stronger family!


Thoughts for Reflection:


What is holding you back from being

all you can be as a father?


What is it

that you could change

about your habits or your character

that would make a positive impact

on your child or children?


Note: There may be several things, but just pick one or two things and make a decision to start moving forward.

  • Write down what specifically you are going to be doing or not doing.
  • Then give yourself a goal of one month to review your progress.
  • Then set a goal of three months to review your progress.
  • Then six months - which is the end of this year.  (Put notes on your calendar to remind you of the dates that indicate it is time to review progress.

Seriously consider what you could

do

to help inspire you,

motivate you, and

propel you toward success.


You may want to get an accountability partner.

You may want to share this page with a friend and the two of you work on this together.


If you are a person

who needs encouragement,

then be sure to give yourself lots of encouragement.


Ideas to motivate you:

You might want to play certain Christian songs that motivate you to action.

You might want to record yourself giving yourself a pep talk and then commit to listening to it daily.

You may also want to consider recording our Spiritual Warfare Prayers and listening to them daily. AND at the end of the prayer, you could add, "I am dressed and ready to be a GREAT DAD!


Remind Yourself:

I can defeat anything that holds me back. 


Tuesday 


Proclamation:


Every father wants to be a better dad.

As I follow through with my plans,

I will become better!


Yesterday,

the devotion suggested that you make

a plan

for becoming a better dad.

Now that you have a plan:


Be determined to find things

that ignite your motivation to follow through

and

schedule them into your daily routine!


Dear God,

I ask you to give me ideas that will help me to get motivated to follow through on my plans.

Help me to be creative to find things that will motivate me and to be determined to use those things regularly.

Thank you, God, for helping me to become a better dad.

Amen


If you have not accepted Jesus Christ

as your Savior and Lord,

please consider

visiting our Prayer for Salvation page.



Note:

The best way to renew our mind
and
think like God

is to read God's Word regularly.




Wednesday 


I will proclaim:

I am brave in actions,

And strong in character!


Even if you do not feel brave in actions

and strong in character,

speaking those words will draw you toward that reality.



Speaking boldly

helps create change.


God teaches us to speak out who we want to become.

Speaking out truth helps us to grow into that truth.


Gideon


Gideon was a believer in God.


Gideon and his people

were being terrorized by their enemies.


God sent the angel of the Lord to visit Gideon

and tell him

that he was being raised up as a leader for his people.


When the angel of the Lord came to Gideon, he addressed Gideon by saying, "The Lord is with you, you mighty man of courage."

That doesn't sound unusual, until you realize that Gideon was hiding in a wine press terrified of being located by his enemies.

(As you can see from how the angel of the Lord addressed Gideon, God sees our potential and calls us into it before we are actually there.)

When Gideon heard the angel of the Lord call him a Mighty Man, he immediately tried to correct his visitor. (He tried to correct God.) Gideon explained to the angel of the Lord that he was the least of all God's people.

God teaches us

to speak out bold statements

and

do

bold things for God.


In Joshua 1:9 NLT, God tells us,


"This is my command - be strong and courageous!

Do not be afraid or discouraged

for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."


Thursday

 

Children are playing

Follow the Leader

even when we don't realize it.




Friday


Dear Lord,

Strengthen me and give me wisdom

for the tough parts of parenting.

Amen



The average age of starting to become

addicted to pornography is age 11.

Boys and girls are becoming addicted.

Protect your kids.

Don't buy the lie that every male has to do it!

Saturday 


Almost every day, the devil comes to us to tempt us.

He wants us to walk with him

instead of

walking with our Lord

in some way or another. 


What will your answer be today?



Actually

it is demons instead of the actual devil.

Satan can only be in one place at one time. 

But it is powerful for me to visualize that picture.

It helps me to make wise choices.

Think about it:


People never crumble in a day.

Daddies never crumble in a day.

Families never crumble in a day.

It's a slow fade.


Again we highlight this song to inspire Dads

to make godly choices.



Winking at sin leads to sorrow;

Bold reproof leads to peace.

Proverbs 10:10 TLB
