Dear God, I pray for Kris's Kids and my Kids right now. We know you are ever with them, may they feel your presence, may they make mindful choices. May Kris's girls stay calm and focused as they take the driving test this tuesday, and may Oli realize that grades matter, and apply himself in order to finish strong. May my kids be kind to each other and others....May they seek to serve you and feel you in their lives.
May you bring this new christian local friend into Kris' everyday life- a new bestie she can count on to be a spiritual sister in the flesh!
I pray this for me also. I have just recently found a great christian lady that moved into the area- met through soccer- and we are growing closer and closer, praying for each other and supporting each other. I feel like we have been friends for much longer than a few months. THANK YOU LORD!
Teenage years are crazy, hormones run wild, kids are coming into their own, and often make what seems to us mom's a big mistakes... I remember mine, I made some whoppers of mistakes, for me mostly the first year of college..... but we have to remember that this is the time they are becoming their own person, and mistakes are how they learn...
Mistakes are how WE learn. and yes, they are dealing with the Evil Forces of Satan....as are we. I can only imagine how hard it will be for me to watch as my kids fall, as they make huge mistakes as teens....to not prevent it..... Just keep loving them. Let them feel your LOVE over all, even through the frustrations. and remind them that GOd is there too.
I remember back and I know a lot of what my parents said really resonated, even as I turned my back to them....
so...... moral of this story---- GOD IS IN CONTROL---all of our conflict stems from worldly and Satan influences.....and through it all, as bad as the trials feel, GOD is there, He has a reason- and ultimatley our JOY and Peace is not of this world, its from ABOVE....so in any situation, no matter how scary we can still find JOY and PEACE-because they are not of this world.
(all of that was to share, but really I was "preaching" to myself- I needed to hear all of this- and I feeel like GOd spoke this to me after reading that original VERSE....
I feel so blessed to have this thread. These verses
