Men of God Arise

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. ~ Ephesians 6:10

men pursue women

As I was cleaning off some of my shelves and storage cabinets, I came across one of my older poetry binders from 2011, and I discovered a trove of poetic treasures and writings about life trials, celebrations, feelings, and circumstances that I have never published. Most of them are so exceedingly relevant to the present and this one is no exception. In this world, so many Christian men and women tend to to settle for less than a Godly centered husband or wife. Having been single for 15 years and just getting remarried a year ago, I realize how difficult it can be to find someone who is centered on prayer, worship, and meditation of God’s word, but I also realize how important it is to be evenly yoked so my expectations remained high.

It is my prayer that every man of God will live out loud their faith, and walk the walk they have committed to heart and mind. In the same way, it is my prayer that every woman of God will wait for the man God has designed for them, and settle for nothing less.


You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way,
as with someone weaker, since she is a woman;
and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life,
so that your prayers will not be hindered.
To sum up, all of you be harmonious, sympathetic, brotherly,
kindhearted, and humble in spirit;
not returning evil for evil or insult for insult,
but giving a blessing instead;
for you were called for the very purpose that you might inherit a blessing.
~ 1 Peter 3:7-9

Men of God Arise

Women in search of a true man of God
Standing firm in our beliefs
Accepting nothing less
Wanting for a warrior to stand before us

Men, we want you to love God
To seek Him in all that you do
Getting down on your knees
Lifting hands to the God who sees all

You must seek justice
Love mercy, live in grace
Walk in humility with the One True God
Falling before Him broken and torn

Battles may rage within your heart
Furious wars take place in your mind
You must be the man who breaks those chains
The man who challenges the world to stand

We women want a man who is courageous
Who loves us heart and soul
Who protects his loved ones at all costs
A man who refuses to let us fall

Men, you were made for so much more
Not meant to sit on the sidelines
But to passionately seek the Lord
Men of God arise, the world needs you
