Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.(Philippians 4:8-9)
What Do Our Kids Really Believe?
A teen/young adult’s life is full of change . . . They question the world . . . faith . . . everything!
yet we all have questions: What are any of us really sure of anyway?
Try making a physical list . . . the sun will rise, the ocean waves will continue to go in and out, God is still God! What else?
What are we unsure of? Will I marry . . . will I graduate . . . will I keep my job . . . will I have children . . . Does God care?
What do we actually control . . . What does God control . . . or need to have control of in our lives?
Does it scare you know a lot of things are out of our control . . . having doubt?
It is OK to have doubts . . .Even John the Baptist had doubts! (Luke 7:18-19)
So how can we be sure . . . how can we trust God?
Read Philippians 4:8-9 again . . .
How can we be sure . . . how can we replace doubt with faith . . .we work at it!!!!
