Every man hears voices telling him who he is, what he is, and why he is the way he is. Few have taken the time to research their origins. Because the sources of the voices have not been searched out, perilous compromises are always at the door, inviting a man to fear, prove, or hide.
If a man never awakens to these inner voices, telling him his interpretive and concluding abilities are not tainted, then the problem starts there. If a man believes that the only “voices” he hears are his own, then waking up is the first order of business.
There is an enemy with a vested interest in building a man’s identity and life based on false assumptions and hand-me-down falsehoods. Forces are at work both for us and against us. It’s time we wake up, see, hear, and engage in training, and enter the Larger Story to reclaim our hearts and our true voice then our noble roles as men. In order to be uncompromising men, we must journey with God and explore what is noble and good within us—and what is not.
There is something very good God is after, someone he wants to see recovered. And when it is, a different Life emerges, a restored and free Life. It’s the one a man was meant to have, meant to live, and meant to share.
An excerpt from The Heart of a Warrior.
Men have a glorious and significant role in God’s Larger Story. They also are the target of a special warfare aimed continually and ruthlessly at the center of their being… their masculine hearts. Naivety and ignorance keep many men running in circles while misinformation and poor training keep many more in bondage. Men are wounded, frustrated, angry and being crushed under the weight of criticism and expectations. The attempted solutions of recent years is education; tell men what they are doing wrong and give them a list to memorize. This strategy isn’t working and its time we fall back to an Ancient One. What if we are setting men up for failure rather than helping them be free? Join author and guide, Michael Thompson, as he invites men to a place of training and orientation that will ensure both a settled heart and a fierce courage. A man cannot enter this battle without knowing he is a Beloved Son. After all, that is what the battle is all about!
