Some moms and dads feel like complete failures.Â What happened to those innocent days when the kids were compliant and fun to be around?Â Today â€¦the teens are angry and messinâ€™ up big time!
Thereâ€™s a great story in the sixteenth chapter of Actsâ€¦ where Paul and Silas, after being beaten and thrown in jail for preaching the gospelâ€¦ were actually singing praise songs!Â At midnightâ€¦ at the darkest momentâ€¦ they chose to worship God.
Paul and Silas can model something profound for the mom or dad who feels trapped and disheartened.Â Though your circumstances are hard and confusingâ€¦ itâ€™s the praise and worship at midnight that brings everything into focus!
My friend â€¦even in your darkest moments â€¦ donâ€™t lose heart.Â God is in control!
