I am in the trenches of raising a teenage daughter. And although I am loving it and her, it might be the hardest thing I have ever done. I remember what it was like to be a teenage girl – vaguely. Constantly searching for a place to belong.
They are a multitude of things that can complicate this. Do you have a place to belong at school – good friends. Do you have a place to belong at home – a safe place to come to when the rest of the world has gone crazy. And probably the biggest and best – do you have a place to belong in Jesus?
I am so thankful that my daughter belongs to Jesus. That she has that sense of belonging to help her get through these tumultuous teenage years. What a blessing to know you belong to Jesus!! No matter what might be falling apart in this world, we know we can count on Him.
