As part of my ministry, I fly all over the country to meet with families who need help. And one thing I’ve learned at 35,000 feet in the air… is that the ride can be turbulent at times!
You know the feeling. The bumps start coming, you’re getting jostled around in your seat, and the captain tells you what you already knew: there’s turbulence ahead.
It’s the perfect metaphor for raising teens, isn’t it? What once seemed like a simple journey from point A to point B becomes a white-knuckle ride… every bounce feels like you’re gonna crash and burn.
Let me reassure you. Sometimes the bumpy ride isn’t the one we’d choose for ourselves… but it’s exactly the one God chose for you. So, be sure to fasten your seatbelt and hang on. God is working His perfect plan in you.
