About 3 years ago here I was at one of the lowest points in my life! Of course I tried to keep a smile on my face the best I could. I was working for Tim Whistler Plumbing and he was such a blessing as a boss. I wish I could have been a blessing for him as an employee haha.
But, my life was a WRECK! I was living on Liz’s couch with 3 kids, goin job to job and trying to keep my head up everyday while feeling emotionally drained and almost dead inside. I wish Tim could have met me now.
I probably wasn’t the best type of friend at the time. I was clinging onto anything to keep myself from drowning. People that were close could feel my grip. I don’t blame no one for even trying to get away from me or “stay away from drama”! I mean look at the mess I had created.
But... I did not take Responsibility for my situation! I wanted to blame my ex for where I was! “She did this to me!” It wasn’t til pretty soon after God opened my eyes to the truth... as a husband I am responsible for the outcome of my family! When bad situations arise, God calls upon the Man to guide his family out. When Eve bit the forbidden fruit, he didn’t ask Eve where she was, He Asked Adam!!! Clear sign that even though he didn’t do the act, and even though he wasn’t to blame... he was ultimately Responsible! It took going trough a divorce and losing everything for me to understand that if I am to be a leader, then everything is my Responsibility!
Men... who do you blame for your situation when life turns upside down?
