Please Be With the Parents of Teenagers

Dear God,

Please be with the parents of teenagers.

What a world we live in now. It seems that there are many teens and preteens that are suffering from severe "identity crisis'" these days. This is in a world where the internet allows people to post every type of detail about their lives that anyone would ever care to know or read.

Let's all post:
pictures of every little action and every place visited and every thought ever produced and every perversity and every put down every joke every happy thought every like every dislike every relative every job held every college attended every relationship gone bad or good....EVERYTHING! (I stand guilty in these shenanigans as well Lord)

Identity crises? Really? How? How when everything we are is posted and in clear view by anyone who cares to look.

You said the only way to find life is to lose it (not talking about suicide.) When selfishness stops and is replaced by genuine love for You and for others, THAT is when we will know who WE are and the identity crisis will stop.

Give-Give-Give and Help-Help-Help others. That is when life will get better.


{Daily Scripture Reading: Matthew 10:30-39}

Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their
life for my sake will find it.
Matthew 10:39
