Phones and Parental Aggravation


texting

The world felt as if it was falling-in around me and there was no answer from my 15-year old son. Each text and phone call went unanswered and I was thousands of miles away from home. His phone was either dead, turned off, or as usual, he was ignoring my attempts to reach him.

What is it with teenagers? They insist on having cellular phones, which you pay for, then they refuse to answer you unless it’s something they want. It is aggravating to the parental mind.

God has been trying to reach you. Do you reply to His text messages? Do you even check your spiritual “phone”? Though written long ago, the Bible is God’s voice speaking to you today.

At the same time, He is always eager to hear from you. If you are one of His children through new birth by faith, He hears every word you utter and think. No prayer of your heart ever goes unheard or unanswered.

The fact that God hears your every prayer doesn’t mean that He is going to do things the way you ask, but it does mean that He is working all things together for good in your life (Romans 8:28).

Call to Me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you know not (Jeremiah 33:3).
