The Fresh Prince of Bel Air rapped it best “Parents just don’t understand.!” We have things we want to do, places we want to go, we want things to run our way without the restrictions of what our parents think, say, do or feel. Take off the strongholds!!! Why don’t parents understand?? Hmm. Sometimes parents don’t understand because they weren’t taught that there are many ways to resolve issues besides the ways that they have become accustomed to. Sometimes they don’t understand because their fears are greater than that which they are willing to risk and sometimes lo and behold they don’t understand because there are mental ailments that don’t allow them to make appropriate decisions. In all of these cases, the children (younger or adult) of these parents, can feel: life is a struggle, misunderstood, unseen, unheard, frustrated, emotionally unstable and probably a wide range of other emotions. Life is not the easiest thing to maneuver. One has to be bound in faith and surrounded by others that will help them get through the times when the “parents” are creating challenges. Hopefully someone, somewhere will remind that child that there is one parent that will always understand. We call him Jesus-google Him:). He’s there all day and night, just waiting for us to hand over our burdens and crosses when they get to heavy. When we don’t understand.. when our parents don’t understand, we have to call on our Father who understands it all.
Just a lil something to think about and remember..I love you but God loves you more.
