"... I now live by faith, look to Him daily, lean on His presence, walk by His Word, and labor in His power. I am prayed up, trained up, and built up. I am devoted to Christ and called to forgive, honor, accept, admonish, greet, encourage, bear with, build up, and serve others. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of my enemy, ponder in the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity....
I am a man of God and I will live my life in such a way that others will know that I have enlisted in God's army. I will come under God's authority in all areas of my life and I will obey His directives without questions."
I have seen my husband take many oaths before,
to support and defend the Constitution of the United States,
to love for better or for worst, for richer or for poor, in sickness and in health,
to serve, protect and improve the quality of life.
Of all the oaths he has chosen to take in his life,
I find to be a Man of God to be the most honorable of them all.
That is what we were celebrating this Father's day.
I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me
