Had coffee with one of my close friends this AM and we were sharing our fears (never an easy thing for manly men). After encouraging each other (basically to man-up) we went to our battlefields (work) to war against our demons. In light of that talk this AM, I decided to share a snippet from the summary of my book "RETOOLED"...sorry Ladies, it's directed towards us guys but you're all warrior princesses to me!
"America must win this war. Therefore, I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone."

Retooled, shaping our fathering from the inside out is a journey not for the fainthearted. It’s one of discovery, determination and a call to a high-octane mission. Strategically dropped into a battle zone for a purpose, to make a difference, is that mission! We need to focus on that assignment; the orders are clear and tactically strong. The clock is ticking and your destiny (and your family’s) is on the line. This is who you are meant to be…a man—God’s man—a man after His own heart. A warrior trained, not just for battle but also for winning that battle!
“And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.” Acts 13:22
“He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.” Psalm 18:34
“For You have girded me with strength for the battle; You have humbled under me those who rose up against me.” Psalm 18:39
How do we win?
By placing our lives in the hands of Father God; he is the warrior King.
The LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name. Exodus 15:3
Sold out alliance to His will, guarantees our victory in this battle. When we surrender all to the Father’s way—like Jesus did—there is no surrender to any other force. We are His and His alone. Bound by honor, chosen by name, we become His sons and follow a sacred path. Inside you a warrior, a champion is waiting for release. Your family needs that man; your brothers need that man. Do you have what it takes to follow Christ with everything you have? I believe you do…say those brave words and see what the King has to say.
Not my will…yours.
So…what do you war against? How can I pray for you?
