I need prayers!

It has most recently dawned on me that I am the mother of a teenager. I mean, I knew it the day she left the 12th year, but everyone warned me about the “terrible twos” and those weren’t so bad, so I really was not concerned about these teenage warnings.

I’m not saying my child is bad.
She’s not a bad kid…no not at all, BUT SHE’S A TEEN.
So many things come into factor…more school, friends, boys (gag), getting involved with sports and such, etc.

This is the time, I know, bodies change, minds move toward defiance and secrets get kept. I remember this time. I remember not knowing what I wanted or who I liked or didn’t like. I depended so much more on my friends than on my parents and family.
I don’t want to go through this with my child.
I want her to love me and tell me what is up all the time.
I don’t want her to feel her worth from what others tell her.
I want her to stand up and keep in mind she is God’s child.
I want her to be confident in who she is and that GOD MADE HER who she is for a purpose.

I know that purpose is not apparent and that is what makes these next few years so confusing. This confusion will lead to self esteem issues and drama. Oh, the drama. I detest that word although I know that is what life is…”an exciting, emotional, or unexpected series of events or set of circumstances.” I like exciting and know life is emotional, but I do prefer peace in my days. When I think of the word “drama,” I think of teenage girls or worse, people who seem to be stuck in that teenage state who love to create and/or have constant chaos in their lives. Adults who act that way are most disturbing. BUT BACK TO MY TEENAGER…

I need prayers! I will stay in a constant state of prayer for her and for her friends who are going through the same roller coaster type ride of life, but I ask you to please pray for me. I know my patience will be tested, I will be let down, disappointed at times and maybe even on edge of insanity. I will pray and pray some more keeping in mind that PRAYER DOES WORK. I am not going to deny that this time may be more than I expect, but I will be prepared with my sword of prayer. PRAYER IS POWER!

So, again, I ask you to please pray for me as I continue to experience this time in my life (and hers).

I need prayers!

I take comfort in this verse:

GOD IS GOOD!

This saying is something we seem to utter, share or even scream when things go good.  When there is a verdict given we agree with or a plan that comes together, we are quick to say it.  How about all those times where it doesn’t work out exactly like we want it to?  We wressle with the reasons why or even blame God for making it happen or not happen–whatever the case.  Today was a great day.  My Monday was one of those Mondays where plans came together, no one gave me the evil eye or the grumy grouch, everything went smoothly and prayers were answered.    If you think about it, though, prayers are answered constantly.  We just don’t look at it that way.  God is ALWAYS at work and He is ALWAYS good!  No matter what happens to us, God is constant.  He has a plan for us.  We just have to keep in mind that no matter what is thrown our way, He has got us!  He is good and His plans are good—ALL THE TIME!  ((Even on days that aren’t smooth!))

Let’s try and say this all the timeGOD IS GOOD!
