Moving Forward- Ricardo Sanchez

Just over a month ago, I made a blog post including the song below about Freedom in Christ.

As men, we have a place, or better yet, a moment when certain things must cease. Whether they be childish behavior, poor money decisions, dishonesty, poor communication skills, lack of work ethic, etc; somethings just have to come to an end. Why? The full demonstration of all that God has intended for us to be will be stunted by our stubborness if we don’t let go of whatever is holding us back.

Letting go is not as easy done, as it is said. That’s why it’s key for us to rely on God’s help to assist us in all areas, especially those where we have the most struggle. Our past is just that- the past. While I write to you, I’m encouraging myself to push past whatever IT is to be all that God has purposed in life for us to be.

The Struggle Is Necessary

As men we must fight if we are going to accomplish anything substantial in life. Nothing is just given to us in our lap if we choose to sit idle. Interestingly enough sometimes we may feel as we are at war within ourselves (or another me).  The scripture provides a great example of this struggle that we often face to overcome battles if we’re going to be victorious. It is not possible to escape these woes, because it is necessary for our growth and development. The reality is… it’s the only way that Christ is shown alive in our life.

Here’s a bit of motivation from the scripture…. 

2 Corinthians 4:8-10 AMP,  We are hedged in (pressed) on every side [troubled and oppressed in every way], but not cramped or crushed; we suffer embarrassments and are perplexed and unable to find a way out, but not driven to despair;9  We are pursued (persecuted and hard driven), but not deserted [to stand alone]; we are struck down to the ground, but never struck out and destroyed;10  Always carrying about in the body the liability and exposure to the same putting to death that the Lord Jesus suffered, so that the [resurrection] life of Jesus also may be shown forth by and in our bodies.

They Need You Too..

They need you to stay long to meet the demands their facing……

They need you to attend outings after a long day…..

They need you to push hard when others aren’t looking……

They need you to comfort the newcomers and veterans alike……

They need you to often lay aside your personal matters to be there for them…..

They need you too …..Your Family.

All to often our family gets replaced by job, the fraternity, the service organization, and even church. Men let’s make our family FIRST priority.
