If you have a child or teen, you know one thing for sure; they are moody. There is no getting around it. Adolescent brains are changing and growing, and hormones are raging which makes at any moment they can lose it.
There was one time, I looked at my child and I didn’t smile, immediately he yells “Stop looking at me with your straight face!” I did not know a straight face was a bad face?
The child’s personalities and emotions can switch on a daily basis, which can make it hard for a parent to handle.
I think one that is comforting to know is that parents are not alone, we all face this challenge.
When we face these difficult times, we can find comfort with other parents, but as Christians, we can look toward the one thing that is constant: Our God.
Hebrews 13:8 (NIV) say’s “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
We can count on our God because He is our rock. He is love will never fail us and endures forever. When we are trying our best to figure out our children, we should rather look toward Him for wisdom because He gives that out to us generously.
Take a few moments for the question and prayer below?
What part of God’s characteristics do I need right now? (Colossians 3:12-14)
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Take a moment to pray for peace in your home and in your children
