Some moms and dads feel like complete failures. What happened to those innocent days when the kids were compliant and fun to be around? Today …the teens are angry and messin’ up big time!
There’s a great story in the sixteenth chapter of Acts… where Paul and Silas, after being beaten and thrown in jail for preaching the gospel… were actually singing praise songs! At midnight… at the darkest moment… they chose to worship God.
Paul and Silas can model something profound for the mom or dad who feels trapped and disheartened. Though your circumstances are hard and confusing… it’s the praise and worship at midnight that brings everything into focus!
My friend …even in your darkest moments … don’t lose heart. God is in control!
