WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR ADULT CHILDREN DON’T APPRECIATE YOU…

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

One of the most heartbreaking things is to have the adult children that you raised, love, nurtured and sacrificed not to appreciate you…resent you…avoid you…or even rebel against you.

It could be for any number of reasons:

Mistakes you’ve made in raising them (we’ve all made them)…

They have a step-parent that was able to do more for them than you…

The inability to provide some of the things they wanted…

When they feel you have favored siblings over them…

They blame you for their problems or issues…

Your best just wasn’t good enough for them…

Resenting you for disciplining them…

Comparing you to other parents…

You know the reason(s), or you may not know.

It may be your fault, or it may not be your fault.

King David’s son Absalom wanted to kill his father because he wanted his throne (2 Samuel 15), but David never stopped loving…

WHEN ALL YOU NEED IS SOMEONE TO TELL YOU, “IT’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT”…

picsart_08-03-094972140985451098845.jpg

No matter how confident we may seem to be, we all have days that we just don’t know what to do. We have those moments when we get away to ourselves just to fall apart for a few minutes. Sometimes, we don’t want anyone to see us. And, sometimes we do.

Sometimes we want someone to see our tears, put their hand on our shoulders and tell us, “It’s gonna be alright”. At that point we don’t even need a solution.


A well-timed, “It’s gonna to be alright” is all the encouragement it takes sometimes to give us strength we need until we get to our solution.


Proverbs 12:25 (NKJV)

25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,
But a good word makes it glad.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NKJV)

11 Therefore [a]comfort each other and [b]edify one another, just as you also are doing.

You are more powerful than you may realize. Be sensitive to when God is specifically sending you to someone to encourage them.

These may bless you too:

THIS IS FOR THE DAYS YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE BEING ENCOURAGED…

ENCOURAGE YOUR ENCOURAGER…TODAY!

WHY ALMOST ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS’ FIRST ACT OF OFFICE IS A SIN…

wp-1497365681157.

I’ve written about this before, but I’m addressing it again because I’m concerned about our traditions that blatantly go against the bible, but we feel compelled to keep them going.

The constitution demands that the President of the United States be bound by oath or affirmation per Article II, Section One, Clause 8 (Wikipedia)…

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”[


There is absolutely nothing wrong with ‘affirming’ that you will execute your duties, but swearing to do so is a sin…


Matthew 5:33-37 (NKJV)

33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of [a]old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ 34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 But let [b]your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.

Calling it an ‘oath of office’ and doing so on a bible that forbids it is downright foolish.


Can anyone give one, just one reason justifying this when the bible forbids it?


And this is what’s really absurd. When someone swears on a bible (such as in court) who has no regard for the word of God, what weight does that carry? If they don’t believe in God, they have no problem lying with their hand on that bible.

Quite frankly, some of our traditions need to die. Insisting that our elected officials or people testifying in court swear on a bible is sin.

Can you think of any other traditions that are in conflict with the word of God?
