John 15:5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Family Declaration: Jesus is our vine and we are his branches. We choose to remain in Jesus showing the fruits of the spirit like Jesus did. We choose to do nothing apart from him.
Do you try to teach your children
Problem parents face/ FACTS & FEELINGS
– Feeling like they have no idea what they are doing
– Feeling like they don’t know where to go for help
Do you ever feel like you have no idea if you have any authority in your home or not?
Do you feel like you may actually be the person in the least control of what happens in your house and family?
Do you ever feel like throwing your hands in the air (like you just don’t care) and wanting to hole up and hide to just get a minute to breathe, think or even just cry?
Do you wish you could have a SuperNanny like you see on tv come rescue your family?
Great news! There is help.
Why? Because your authority as a parent and knowledge doesn’t come from your own childhood, he comes from your new identity as a Christ follower. You are now connected to HIS family tree.
God loves us and does not leave us hanging when it comes to learning what Godly parent habits should look like.
“All scriptures is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness. – 2 Timothy 3:16
“so that the servant of God may be throughly equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:17
Even if you have never had a godly example of parenting- do not fear.
Are you at a place that you can trust God that 2 Timothy 3:16 is true?
By understanding that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit will be your guide for examples of Godly parents.
Here is a small example:
God is love –
Jesus is the way –
Holy Spirit is your teacher –
Do you trust God with your family and your children’s future?
The scriptures are you true source of authority and best parenting practices and you will need to trust the Holy Spirit to show you how to apply them to parenting.
Parenting is NOT raising kids. It is raising adults. It is raising disciples.
As you are teachable receiving from scripture, prayer and the Holy spirit, you are able to teach your children form the overflow.
Let the Holy Spirit lead you into an intimate relationship with God.
Ephesians 3:20 says that he “who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
