Are you ever been tempted to figuratively, drive someone’s boat for them?
What if you have the experience of a ‘driver’ in your boat who pulls away and takes you to places unknown?
Sometimes our children, or even our loved ones, take us in directions we had no intention, or desire, of going.
- Is there anything that can change the direction of the the driver?
- Are we able to affect their choice?
- Can we help without taking their agency?
- How can we help ourselves?
- Lack of responsibility, or not wanting to take it on
- Not wanting to face fears
- Not wanting to be alone
- Not wanting to be accountable for their own decisions -it will always be someone else’s fault as they continue down this path
- Laziness for one reason or another
Your great asset, the way to help your straying, or rebellious loved one, is to take courage in your value as a human being.
YOU too are the greatest crowning achievement of God!
- The most important thing you can do, is to work on your relationship with your Heavenly Father.
- Be better every day, try, realize we all fail, get up and keep going.
- Be a guide and model as you have to cross these violent storms and dark times.
