This message !!!
When your struggling kids are faced with unbiblical thoughts about the war they face...point them to the Lord.
The enemy will throw a whole bunch of nonsense in front of them with the intention of wooing them away or at least distracting them.
And the enemy is inside the church. Make no mistake about it.
I can honestly say that having friends who are on a similar journey as I am...as my child is...as our family is...has been so humbling...encouraging...inspiring...and helpful over the years.
Although I would not wish attachment struggles on anyone...they exist in our fallen world and knowing others are battling the same enemy with the same weapons brings a level of sanity to the fight.
We are not simply battling against flesh and blood....although earthly manifestations of this enemy would have us think so.
This battle is waged firstly and primarily in the spiritual realm.
All has passed through the throne room of our living Lord. None of this is taking Him by surprise.
TAKE COURAGE...parents... Struggling children. Siblings. Friends.
Fear only the Lord.
Find your friends and hold on tight cuz it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

...your devotionals and the week's sermon line up? And a certain song plays on the radio that speaks to whatever it is you are being shown. And on topic conversations occur out of the clear blue sky....
...and they all line up with the ISSUE?
You know how the Lord gives us each certain "hotspot" topics that He wants us to deal with? The ones that fall into our laps. The ones we cannot get away from.
Mine have to do with spiritual warfare and ADULT RAD.
I CANNOT GET AWAY FROM EITHER.
Literally...issues dealing with false teaching in regards to how Bible believing Christians should be handling spiritual warfare matters and adults with RAD symptoms fall into my lap.
Bible Studies...play dates...church services...family gatherings... I encounter these same issues over and over again.
It's not an accident.
Learning to navigate the road on which He has me.
Recently...our family had another experience with a struggling adult. This person refused to go deeper. She bowed out of our lives when we would not bend the knee to her.
I am reminded of this post.
