Dear Parent,

Did you know that the meaning of relation is “being connected to, or linked to.”  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that meaning.  The “ship” of relationship means “state of being.”  So basically, the word “relationship” means the state of being linked or connected to another person.  Hmmm.

My mind cannot wrap itself around the fact that the great God of this universe which He made in just a few short days not with the sweat of His brow but by the mere sound of His words desires the “state of being connected” to us! Mind blowing but true.

So let me take a step back for just a minute.  He wants to build a strong relationship with me, His child.  I want to build a strong relationship with my teenager, my child.  So we are truly not alone in this parenting thing, are we?  He knows the frustration of not being listened to, of being ignored, of being disobeyed.  He knows how I feel as a parent!

I know, some of you who read this are saying, “Yeah, but He is God!”  Which means He knows what He is doing, and we, as parents, can trust that!  We mess up, but He doesn’t.  How awesome is it to know a parent who has never once messed up in parenting their child!

There is a verse in Matthew 11 that I truly believe was put there, because God knew that parents would desperately need to hear it.  “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and LEARN from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light!”

As a parent, one of the greatest things you will ever invest in is a strong relationship with your teenager.  Ask God how it’s done!  Search His word and learn how Jesus invested in those He mentored!  He wants you to have a strong relationship with your teenager as much as He wants one with you!

Walking/Praying with you,


Mark
