Integrity is a rare trait these days.
Maybe it always has been and I'm just noticing now as a grown up and a momma. And being married to someone who has not always been a man of integrity. In fact, quite the opposite for much of our marriage.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! 1 Cor. 15:57I remember when Derek first starting talking about integrity. It was shortly after he truly repented. I was annoyed because we had said yes to something that was looking financially impossible and I just didn't really want to do. But he whipped out "integrity" and decided we were going to keep our "yes" a yes and trust God with it.
It was one of his first real acts of leadership in our family and one of the first times that I had to submit.
Thanks be to God!
Choosing to stick to our word was the right choice and God blessed it. Not just through what we did, but through Derek's stepping out in faith and leading... with integrity.
Today, my man is truly a man of integrity. He is the leader of this home. He is a man after God's own heart.
Thanks be to God!
It is my prayer that the boys God has blessed this family with will follow their daddy's lead.
Father, David was a man after Your own heart in spite of his failures because he repented and followed hard after You. I pray Jack will always do the same with integrity, godliness, and obedience (1 Kings 9:4). Help him to not grow weary in doing good (2 Thess. 3:13) but to walk worthy of Your calling with humility, gentleness, patience, and love (Eph. 4:1-2). And by doing this, may his life that glorifies You, silence the talk of foolish people (1 Peter 2:15). May he grow in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man as Jesus did (Luke 2:52).
