Being a girl whose dad’s left, it’s almost impossible for me not to be blind to the fact that Christian guys are becoming exceedingly uninvolved in the church, along with families, commitment, leadership, and prayer. I know several girls whose hearts are aching for a male role model to lead them and be strong. Instead, I’ve been hearing about how their hearts are breaking. Why is this so hard to find? Why has it become so ordinary for our men of God to gradually disappear? Many of my closest friends have fathers absent in their families. This doesn’t necessarily mean being away from the household. It seemed my father was absent my whole life. Why is it so hard to find men with their hearts are on fire for God? How are we supposed to strive and succeed if the ones we look up to give up and quit? It breaks my heart to be in a prayer group and only hear the girls talk to God.
It breaks my heart to be sitting in church and see that the fathers are staying home.
It breaks my heart to see Christian guys my age slowly become more uninvolved in projects devoted to God. God meant for men to lead and be strong.
We need our men of God now more than ever, the men whose hearts are on fire for God. So where are our men of God?
“For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints”(Proverbs 2:6-8 ).
