My 8 Year Old Son’s Favorite Verse

As we were reading during children’s bible studies today, my son came across a verse that really spoke to him.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the  Lord  does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
– 1 Samuel 16:7 NKJV

He read this and said to us, “If everyone in the world could do as God did, we’d all love each other.”

A Very Trying Morning…

This morning was a very difficult morning. Morning devotion was disrupted by the screams of arguing kids upstairs, I forgot to put grounds in the coffee maker, so I poured myself a cup of hot water and the kids were late to school because I lost track of time.

On the way to work, I was planning on brightening up my morning by getting a nice cup of overpriced (decaf) Joe at Starbucks only to find that I left my money and credit card at home today. GRRRR…. Double Facepalm!

I finally managed to scoop up enough change to get a small coffee, and realized that I was acting like a crack addict! Was this one cup of coffee that important? Looking up, I decided to let God tell me what I actually needed. He gave me this:

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

– Psalms 37:4

A co-worker offered me a cup of their freshly brewed coffee, and it just so happened that they drink decaf!

Double Facepalm

First Post

A proper first post for someone of faith such as I might just start with Genesis 1:1

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

But I’d rather start with Revelation 22:12 –

Surely, I am coming quickly, and my reward is with me.

For any faithful man, woman or child, this promise marks eager anticipation and hope for what is to come.

It has been just a month or so since I made the choice to follow God seriously
Now, I wasn’t a bad guy before that. I was just your average guy, about to turn 40. I smoked, drank on occasion and enjoyed lustful encounters with my wife (100% faithful) from time to time. I work the 9 to 5 and she stays home with the kids. We had a pretty good life before, and loved life, had respect and reverence for God, but the one thing I lacked was motivation and devotion to the Higher Power.

This blog isn’t for everyone.
In fact, its really just my study guide while on the road. I keep a permanent bible in my backpack and devote myself daily to the scriptures.

A Faithful Husband blog isn’t about trying to be faithful to my wife. That’s not an issue. This blog is is the documentation of my personal Bible studies, mostly written on my Samsung Galaxy S3 or on the iPad with the WordPress App.

I study both the New King James and the New international Version, and quite here from either on (whichever I happen to be holding at the time).

My wife has been SDA all her life, but I just started learning and following the Word about a month ago seriously.

Well, again, nothing formal here. This blog is just my study notes while I’m on the road, at work or just when I have a spare moment. Some posts will be commented, others not.

Follow the blog if you’d like. Comment if you feel compelled.

God Bless You.
