We have amazing, God-given power of influence. We must use it wisely.
Like Samson, men are softened to our influence, as we are to theirs. It’s not a weakness though, it’s an opportunity our husbands give us to work together. An opportunity they won’t likely to give to anyone else.
What will we do with this gift?
Will we discourage the man within, with complaining & encourage the boy to remain with mothering?
Will we lift him up, keep respectful boundaries and speak manly knighthood into him?
I know this seems silly, but I think a great example of this is portrayed in the story “Beauty and the Beast”.
Belle gives wonderful examples of self-confidence, strength and beauty that changes the beast, just by being herself. She’s bold, courageous and stubborn about what she knows is true.
Rent the movie, grab the popcorn, go back to dreaming,… then pursue the dream!
