C.S. Lewis once wrote, “We don’t necessarily doubt that God will do the best for us; we wonder how painful the best will turn out to be.”
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston … with Parenting Today’s Teens.
As parents, we never seek out pain when raising a family. In fact, we usually do everything within our power to avoid it. But all too often, our tendency to run from pain … means that we fail to experience God’s very best for our lives.
Look … parents in the midst of pain are in the worst position to change it. In reality, they’re in the best position to be changed by it. So don’t run from those awkward, goofy, distasteful moments that teens bring into your home!
God truly wants the best for you. But the best may require a little pain.
