S=. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
O=. My observation is that might possibly be the most perfect scripture in the bible, granted I haven’t read it all, but from what I have it’s the best! The reason I say that is because it’s 100% accurate from every angle, God will transform you, he will guide you, he will change your actions and without him in your life you will stumble! You can’t just be with him part of the time though! He gave us free will so we make our own choices, but if we will be sold out for God 1000% your day to day life will be something to be shared rather than something you try to put in the back of your closet and hide from the world, because when you’re not of this world you will have nothing to hide in it because you are dead to it! You are swimming up stream in a down stream world which is tough, but not near as tough as what you can put yourself and your family through without Jesus in your life!
A=. I kind of feel like a broken record, but I think the only thing to do is die to self and lead my wife down that same path while we teach our kids how to live a dead to the world life!
P=. father I pray that you give me the strength to be the Christian man you want me to be, show me your will, and guide me down the straight and narrow path because without you I am lost!
Y=. I am ALWAYS there, reach out and seek me, and I will show myself to you, put me first, I am not sorry for asking to be first in your life, because if you will do what I ask, everyone around you will be blessed especially your wife & kids. They will see the true way to live and know that they have a leader in their life that they can trust in every facet of life without interruption. Everything else falls into line when you submit to me and give me what is truly mine for it is I who created you in my own image!
