Do you have a child who is tender and sensitive in the spiritual realm, yet always seems to be in trouble? The one who causes so much chaos in the home? A few days of peace, only to lament, “Here we go again”? Does this child appear to do everything they can to break connection, as if they are fighting to be an orphan despite having a loving family? Do you feel a constant tension over this child in the spiritual realm?
Does this child touch something so deep inside of you that you react strongly and say/do things that you deeply regret and feel horrible about? Have you questioned what you have done to wound this child so profoundly (contributing to their never-ending cycle)? Do you love this child fiercely, yet, at times, recoil from them and strongly desire not to be around them (because the chaos will follow)? Do you find yourself not saying things that need to be addressed in the times of ‘peace’ in fear of the chaos kicking back up again?
Does this child make comments about not believing in God or that He is real? Do they resist things like prayer, worship and asking Jesus questions?
There is now, therefore, no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, but if this describes your household, we have an issue that needs to be brought into the light and dealt with.
