Things go wrong. Plans don’t go as planned. Life throws you a curve ball. To be more specific – the children you raise may very well part from your example and instruction. They break your heart in the process.
Proverbs 22:6. Train up a child in the way he should go; Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
This is not a promise. It is a hope of every Christian parent. However, with television in this world it’s becoming less and less a possibility. New technology seems straight from somewhere other than heaven. Progressive teaching seems so backward that you might as well send your children to the Fagin School of ethics. But my title says it all. Even in what seems like a daily midnight we have a Refuge. His name is Christ Jesus. He is with us 24/7. When everything seems hopeless He is there listening and consoling us. All we need to do is make quiet time to share with Him. Turn off the phone, throw out the TV, and go to a quiet private spot. Tell Him everything. Listen in this peaceful oasis for His response.
