Matthew 6:27 says, Can any of you add a single hour to the span of your life by worrying?
Hi, I’m Mark Gregston… with Parenting Today’s Teens.
Well, let’s be honest. No matter how hard we try …it’s really hard not to worry about your kids. Especially when they’re acting out in unacceptable ways. It’s scary to watch your child choose the wrong things, and struggle as a result.
But part of the reason God may allow your child to struggle through some things is to teach you to believe that He is in control. And that you can trust Him.
Here’s another verse for you. Jeremiah 17 says … Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord… for he will be like a tree planted by the water… and will not fear when the heat comes. Its leaves will be green and it will not be anxious in a year of drought.
Do you find yourself weary from worry? Relax. God can be trusted.
