God Does the Growing

"He also said, "This is what the kingdom of God is like.  A man scatters seed on the ground.  Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how.  All by itself the soil produces grain-first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.  As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come."
Mark 4:26-29

If you are trying to convince your teenager(s) how much the Lord loves them but seem to be getting no where, take heart.  God does the growing.  If you are anything like me, you have worked diligently instilling the Word, praying, disciplining, and encouraging (just to name a few) your children all their lives.  You've prayed and continue to pray that they will discover all God intends them to be for His glory and their good.  Be encouraged.  God sees.  Your teenager(s) is His and only by the power of the Holy Spirit can their hearts and minds grasp just how amazing His love is for them and that He has a plan for them. Keep trusting and watch Him work as you entrust them to Him.

My prayer for you today, godly mom, is that you will rest in His perfect timing and faithfulness. "Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you (in your teenager) will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus " Philippians 1:6
