While parents everywhere are working hard for children back to school clothes:
Have you checked to see if they are OK in the inside?
Have you asked them how they feel about returning to school?
Some kids are absolutely terrified! Have you stop to see how your child or teenager is doing emotionally?
Beyond packing their book bags with supplies and covering their feet with Jordan’s. Let’s pack them in with love,prayers, confidence, purity, purpose and provision so they wont have to seek it anywhere else. Let us anoint them & cover them in the blood of Jesus!
Youth find strength in rebellion because of lack, rejection and uncertain of identity. Their rebellion is often a defense against a pass trauma. So before you go punishing them starting the school year off out the gate in disruptively. Take a moment of healing for yourself as they may be mirroring your frustrations as their social behavior then talk with them about their actions . Withholding resources and technology as a form of punishment surly make the parent feel accomplished however is ineffective as a discipline in today’s generation.
It actually doesn’t get to the root of the behavior and it promotes anger and defense.
Just think! how open to a conversation would you be if your money and cell phone was taken away.
Some adults you can’t even speak to unless their coffee or cigarette has been expressed and 90% of parents will return home if the cell phone was left on the counter.
Your children mirror your behaviors! So the intent of this post comes to this.
Maybe you should get in the corner before putting little Johhny or Kee Kee in one.
CWM Youth Prophetic Art throwback from July series “Youth Love In The Family!
This piece and interpretation is still relevant for
“Back to School”
Title: Identity Crisis
Interpretation: The Spirit Of The Lord would say upon the canvas.
The faces my young people have been ignored is undefined. Lawlessness and Immorality has grown like green grass. Holiness is still right. Raise and mend this understanding to my children and I will return identity back to mankind.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV)
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
CWM has the download to transform children’s church into trans-formative hour. Just think how far long many of us may have been if we had the prophetic advantage along with applicable road mapping to cultivate. See our website for youth empowerment services. You be surprise what a workshop or youth intensive can do in the lives of your youth.
