How is that we survive the storms of the deep only to drown in the shallow waters of the shore – Just yards away from dry land?
We’re past the worst. We fought a good fight. The threat is almost behind us, so why would we even think about quitting when we’re closer to victory than we were when we started?
The truth is, it is usually because we’re tired. But decisions made from tiredness are most times detrimental.
When we’ve been through a series of storms, we tend to become war weary and worn out from all the battles we’ve had to fight up to this point. Tiredness, if unchecked, can be dangerous. It is important to know when to rest so that we do not wear ourselves out to where our exhaustion turns into delusion. I’m always reminded of Elijah under the Juniper tree. The immediate threat had passed. He had defeated all the prophets of Baal, had just called down fire from heaven yet one word from Jezebel and he sat under the Juniper tree wishing for death.
He was tired and needed rest, but his exhaustion caused him to think he should just give up. Then when God showed up and gave him food and rest, he was able to continue on with his mission. And so it is for us when we are fighting tired. We disregard our prior victories and convince ourselves that the fight will never be over so we might as well just give up – lay down and die.

Nigerian rapper Naeto C is usually prefers to keep his family out of the lime light, however he could not resist sharing these adorable pics of himself with his son Marobi (above) who's birthday it is today. He looks just like daddy!
Many of us have celebrities we like, look up to and even emulate. Some of my favorite celebs are Yolanda Adams, Denzel Washington, and the late Maya Angelou. I like them all for different reasons and feel they inspire goodness. But as much as I like these celebs, I know I am not so enamored by them that I idolize them. I only have one idol (Christ). He’s the one I put before everything.
Today, I ask you this: Where does God fit in your life? Is He #1, #2, #3, or a better question would be… Is He even a priority in your life at all?

The most important thing we can do for our men is something we are probably not in the habit of doing. It may be something we strive to do more often but for whatever reason are not able to do it consistently.
Sometimes doing this thing is inconvenient or maybe even uncomfortable if we are not sure how. However, this thing is the single most important thing you can do for your man.
This thing is prayer.
As believers, we have the distinct honor and privilege to pray for the men in our lives. If we are honest, sometimes we don’t know how to pray or grow weary of doing so. This has been the case in my life but I want to encourage you all to commit to praying for your man for 30 days straight. During this process you may realize that you didn’t pray for him as much as you thought or you may find that you don’t know what specifically to pray.
