To the Mom of a Wayward Child


As a mom, you pour into your children, hoping they will succeed.  You hope they will grab the torch you passed to them and run with endurance, shining Jesus' light and carrying it to the next generation.

What happens though when your child grows up and rejects the truths you taught him? 

More pain.

These monsters want to plant themselves in your soul and weigh you down, making you ineffective.

When your child grows up and rejects everything you taught him, it feels like pure death, BUT God has hope for YOU.

God has a plan for you, apart from the choices your child is making.

  • He wants you to be productive.
  • He wants you to be an integral part of His community of believers.
  • He wants you to live a life of freedom and joy.

Mother of a wayward child, I see you.  I feel your pain, for it can be overwhelming at times.

However, don't let the enemy keep you there, in a pit of pain.

Fix your eyes on God and the purposes he has for YOU.

  • Make goals for yourself.
  • Seek productivity rather than passivity.
  • Surround yourself with godly people always.

Keep going.  Keep serving.

And in the midst of it all, keep praying for your wayward child.

Sending you a virtual hug today!
