A GOOD MAN - WIN HIM AND KEEP HIM - 12 KEYS TO HIS HEART - Marriage Counseling With The Wonderful Counselor Part - XV

Ladies, it will require more than a Hollywood movie script to win a really good man and keep him. And if you already have a good man, there is always a way to help him be even better. To soften and improve his character and give it completeness will require guidance from the One who made the man. We're talking about the Creator - a loving heavenly Father who is willing to share in simple words the ways in which the godly good man can be won to your side and remain there.



A man without the blessings of a happy home, is deprived of an influence that would stimulate and strengthen him. Many of the diseases from which men suffer are the result of mental depression. Mental depression causes dyspepsia (upset stomach), and this aggravates the mental disorder. The brain is the capital of the body, the seat of all the nervous forces and of mental action. The nerves proceeding from the brain control the body. By the brain nerves, mental impressions are conveyed to all the nerves of the body as by telegraph wires; and they control the vital action of every part of the system. All the organs of motion are governed by the communications they receive from the brain. The brain nerves which communicate to the entire system are the only medium through which Heaven can communicate to man, and affect his inmost life. Tired nerves need rest and quiet. Nature needs time to recuperate her exhausted energies. Firm, quiet nerves and a healthy circulation help men to follow right principles and to listen to the promptings of conscience. A man's energy and success, as well as his happiness, depends, to a great degree, upon the character of his home. If a right influence is found there he can bravely encounter trials and discouragements without. His home is his haven of rest. But if there is discord at home, the tired nerves find no relief. The mind is subject to a constant tension, to preserve calmness and self-control. (Job 5:24/Isaiah 26:3,32:17,18/Proverbs 3:33,17:21,21:19,25:24,27:15/1 Timothy 6:6,8/Ecclesiastes 4:6/1 Corinthians 9:27)


Men were not created to be subject to poverty, disease and suffering, not for thoughtless inattention to their physical and spiritual wants, but for dignity, purity and elevation of character in this life, and for joy unspeakable and full of glory in the future immortal life. The husband comes home from his labor weary and perplexed, and meets a clouded brow instead of cheerful, encouraging words. He is but human, and his affections become weaned from his wife, he loses the love of his home, his pathway is darkened, and his courage destroyed. He yields his self-respect and that dignity which God requires him to maintain. The husband is the head of the family, as Christ is the head of the church, and any course which the wife may pursue to lessen his influence and lead him to come down from the dignified, responsible position God would have him occupy, displeases God. (Ephesians 1:3-5,3:9-11/2 Timothy 1:9,10/Romans 2:7/Isaiah 35:3/Revelation 3:2/Proverbs 14:1,31:12)
