I had a close friend say something to me the other evening that made me laugh. He said, “Matthew, you are the most intentional Mother F’er I know”.
At first, I was taken aback as I don’t consider myself an overly intentional person, but after a conversation that followed, it seems there is a gaping hole.
Are you intentional?
Rachael and I had the privilege of speaking to a Life Group of younger couples last evening and it was a blast. They were hungry for more and you could tell they were eating up the content as Rachael and I did our best to teach God’s best for us all around the topic of Intimacy.
One of the most practical things to do to up your game around intimacy or any topic is to be more intentional. YOU need to make it a priority and YOU need to do something about it.
Are You Taking The First Step?
Standing at the end of a precipice, we must ask ourselves this question. We need to be prepared to stand there, over and over again, ready to take that first step.
No matter the situation, you need to be ready. Whether it’s deciding on where to move, or approaching your loved one with a hard question, you need to take the first step. Men this is a call out to you as well, to show your wives that you are leading even when it get’s hard.
God created us in his image, and we need to start living like it. [Tweet “By being more intentional, and always pursuing, we get closer to God and the ones we love.”]
So What Are You Going To Do About It?
This question is one I ask myself and challenge others to on a daily basis. We all have our issues, our excuses, our setbacks, but not all of us are actually prepared or even willing to do anything about it. We are stuck and for whatever reason feel ill-equipped or even fearful of moving forward.
And this is where you come in!
You need to be intentional, living a mindset that “I don’t stay stuck”. You need to be willing to step up to the plate and hit a home run each time, and if you don’t, you get back up to plate and try again.
Yes this is easier said than done, but by practicing being intentional in all of your relationships, growth will come, and everyone will be better because of it.
Are you ready to be that man, that woman, who is all in, and ready to lean in!?!
