As part of my ministry, I fly all over the country to meet with families who need help.Â And one thing Iâ€™ve learned at 35,000 feet in the airâ€¦ is that the ride can be turbulent at times!
You know the feeling.Â The bumps start coming, youâ€™re getting jostled around in your seat, and the captain tells you what you already knew: thereâ€™s turbulence ahead.
Itâ€™s the perfect metaphor for raising teens, isnâ€™t it?Â What once seemed like a simple journey from point A to point B becomes a white-knuckle rideâ€¦ every bounce feels like youâ€™re gonna crash and burn.
Let me reassure you.Â Sometimes the bumpy ride isnâ€™t the one weâ€™d choose for ourselvesâ€¦ but itâ€™s exactly the one God chose for you.Â So, be sure to fasten your seatbelt and hang on.Â God is working His perfect plan in you.
