It’s been a long time since I was a guest on another blog. This week I was at Raising Generations Today. Here’s an excerpt from that post. It’s a mama’s story…
My teenage daughter came to me for advice a couple of nights ago. That, in itself, is no small miracle. She came, because one particular girl in her small private school had been slandering her to many of her friends. Sitting around the kitchen table over a late night snack, she poured out her troubled-heart.
She went on to tell me what she planned on saying to the girl. Something along the lines of, “If you keep on talking bad about me, I won’t be your friend any more.”
I advised that she be careful what state her heart is in, when she says anything. “If you talk to her with the wrong motivation of your, you might end up with more heart-ache.”
“Then what do I do? What do I say?” with exasperation she entreated my counsel.
I searched my mind quickly for an answer. I thought about what I would do — go before the Lord and seek wisdom. So all I could reply is, “I don’t have the answer to that, but I do know how you can find the answer.”
