Working Together for Good

#2167

Life has a way of dishing out trouble, doesn’t it? And if you’re dealing with a struggling teen in your home, I guarantee …your plate is full.

Hi, I’m Mark Gregston… with Parenting Today’s Teens.

In Romans 8, we read… And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Sounds like a conflicting statement. Life dishes out trouble… and all things work together for good. Hmmm. How do we connect those dots?

Let me suggest to you that the pain of dealing with a teen spinning out of control… can lead to a new understanding of God’s sovereignty. In fact, I’m guessing that last night’s argument with your teen… or the tensions between the siblings… is exactly the thing that keeps you on your knees in prayer.

So, yeah …life dishes out trouble. But all things work together for those who love God. No matter what’s happening in your home… God promises that He’s working behind the scenes.
