A short message to all young husbands:
God wants our marriages to be a medium for us to be happy and fulfilled. However, we have to love our wives as a model of Jesus’ love for us. That is why a man’s love for his wife relies on how much he loves Christ. Our relationship with our wives depends on our relationship with Christ.

There are a lot of ways to demonstrate your love for your spouse. But there is only one way to guard your marriage and make it stronger.
You can show warmth or a special fondness. You can regard your spouse as your best friend. You can experience the deepest and greatest physical intimacy. But feelings alone are not enough to tide you through all the seasons.

Worldly materialism deceives us. It shows us that the only way to real happiness, success, and fulfillment is to have everything we want go our way.
A high-paying job, an extravagant house, a new car, and the grandest family holiday seduce us into thinking that they are the most important aspects of life.
In truth, however, even if we acquire and experience all of these temporary things, our lives would still feel empty and incomplete.

Silence is an art, because not everyone can choose to be quiet without difficulty.
It requires a virtue of patience.
I don’t know since when I became silent. I’m not the quiet type in highschool and in college. I can say that I’ve become a completely different person as an adult. I became comfortable with my own silence, I found peace in solitude.

If you could call for something in the midst of this loud, busy, and shaky world that we live in, what is it?
For me, I’d only need the inner peace and quiet and security that only comes from the presence of God.

Because of you, the quiet night sings a
sweet melody of broken sadness.
I search for your face, but no one
else had your rhythm, your light,
nobody had your tiny crooked feet.

Have you ever taken time observing the words you speak?
What you frequently say and talk about is an accurate indication of what is in your heart. Positive speaking means speaking blessings. Negative speaking is speaking curses.
Do your words bless and encourage others? Do your words reveal a patient heart? Or are people hurt or angry because of the things you say? Do you tend to criticize others? Do you always grumble and complain?

It was 7 years and 8 months ago when I first became a dad, and I must admit nothing has prepared me for it.
Yes, I’ve heard much great, godly, and noteworthy advice from my parents and mentors, and have put them to mind and heart, yet the moment you realize that you are now responsible for a little person newly-born into this world you can’t help but at least be nervous.

Letting go is essential to find peace. I apply it in my life not only with the physical stuff, but more importantly in “emotional” clutter.
Ten times out of ten I’ve discovered that I never regret throwing away anything that isn’t useful, beautiful, or joyful in my life – be it physical possessions or hurtful emotions.
