It is a well-documented fact that guys will not ask for directions. This is a biological thing. This is why it takes several million sperm cells… to locate a female egg, despite the fact that the egg is, relative to them, the size of Wisconsin.

 -Dave Barry

I don’t mind asking for directions, but I don’t like to read instructions. Manuals confuse me, and I can figure out where plugs go, and if it is a piece of furniture I figure a few extra nails or screws never hurt anything, if I have extra parts left over from anything then it just meant that I did a good job.

We like to be self reliant. We are brought up that way, and for the most part that is good. But it can be a hinder if we don’t ask others for help from time to time. We should always rely on God for direction, comfort, for everything in our lifes. Yet it seems that we turn to Him in times of trouble, and when things are going smooth then we tend to think that it is our doing and we overlook God. I had a friend when I was younger, he built something now I can’t remember what that was, but it was something that I did not think was going to go up as he thought it would. After some sweat and various words, he got it built. He called me and I came over to see it he was excited about something that apparently he had doubted also. I said, God is good. He said, God had nothing to do with it, I busted my knuckles God didn’t. He felt this way about everything he accomplished, yet he would pray for other things in his life that he felt he could not control.

God is our Father, what if we did this to our earthly father, guardian, best friends, mother, any earthly person that we consider a pillar in our lifes? That we only turn to them when times are bad and when everything is good we ignore them?
God has an everlasting love. He is there during the struggles, and He is also there during the good to offer direction, and instruction but we have to think less of our abilities and more of His infinite ability for all things.
Romans 8:31-39

The trust of the innocent is the liar’s most useful tool. -Stephen King 

Guys are simple… women are not simple and they always assume that men must be just as complicated as they are, only way more mysterious. The whole point is guys are not thinking much. They are just what they appear to be. Tragically.

 A young man who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his reading.
-C.S. Lewis

 A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.

All the reasons which require the subjection of a believer to the brethren of a particular church, require his subjection to all his brethren in the Lord.

 Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
-Carl Jung

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.
