Fatherhood Is About Presence
Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. Psalm 42:5.
I do know some men have deep emotional and financial issues they are struggling with hence, it’s difficult for them to spend time with their wives and children. Some tactfully avoid spending time with their wives because they can hardly have friendly conversations with them. In other words, they are simply avoiding them because they don’t want argument or quarrel. Truth be told, when almost every conversation ends in an argument or a spouse argues to win every conversation, that is not a good sign for the marriage.
Some have problems connecting and socializing with their family because they do not know how to go about it or maybe there are unresolved issues that still hurt them. Whatever the reason is, the truth is it can be dealt with. Let’s take it to the Father for solution. The Scriptures tells us that the Lord heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3).
Please let me encourage every man to take advantage of this lockdown to connect or reconnect with his wife and children. Don’t bother yourself too much about the crisis in the world, but focus on how to please the Father first, then make your family happy.
Your family shouldn’t miss your presence in this time of crisis, but they should enjoy your presence like they have never done before. Be intentional about creating beautiful memories with them.
