Teenagers & Prov. 21:1
Working with teenagers, who are wonderful and lots of fun, sometimes leaves you stumped. Yesterday, he was okay. What happened to him this morning? Where did he go? LOL! We can all enjoy some humor as we realize teenagers face challenges as they mature. As you notice a teenager face challenges (attitude, lethargic, peer-pressure, self-esteem, insecurities, drugs, communication, up, down, etc.), get supernatural assistance. You trust God to do Prov. 21:1 with adults, trust God to also do Prov. 21:1 with teenagers. Don't give up on our beautiful teenagers, but ask God to touch, heal, deliver, and raise up their hearts and minds. Speak to a teenager, give them a warm smile, and reassure them that they are in your prayers (you might even ask if they have a specific request, and commit to pray for them). When you see them, ask how things are going in that area. People of all ages, especially teenagers need genuine love (John 13:34-35).
