Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
~ Proverbs 22:6 ~
As I journey down the path of parenthood with a teenage son in my midst, I am finding that my patience is much shorter than I thought and my tolerance is, well, very limited these days. God is continually reminding me that my son is not my own, but belongs to him and I need to entrust him into HIS hands. I have brought him up in the ways of the Lord, taught him scripture, prayed with him (and still do, even when he doesn’t want to pray!), and have tried diligently to be an example of God’s grace and love (never perfect, but always striving!).
With that said, there are many a day I need some encouragement and days where I need to find scripture that will tune into his heart strings and be something he can relate to when he is tired of listening to me!! I stumbled onto this lovely website with scripture verses for teens and youth and figured I would share it with all y’all. Praying that I make it through the teenage years with my mental health in tact, and praying for my son to learn and grow as God desires.
If you have any great websites, books, or other resources, feel free to share them with me!!
All my love and blessings to you and your family ❤
