Endurance and patience

Col 1:10-11:  "And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience" (NIV).

Some parents are blessed with compliant children who always want to please mom and dad.  Others have kids who are prone to testing the boundaries.  This constant rebellion can push a parent to the brink of their patience and endurance.

Thankfully, you can turn to your Heavenly Father.  He knows what you're going through because He's experienced countless acts of rebellion from all of his children but one.  God's promise is to strengthen you with His power "so that you might have great endurance and patience". 

God gives parents of rebellious children the patience and endurance they need.  Ask!
