Question We Address and Answer:

  • Why do many single parents struggle to walk in purpose?

 

Key Lessons and Takeaways:

  • The value in parents taking the time out to sit down and genuinely talk to their children.
  • The importance of parents listening to their children.
  • The danger of parents trying to live vicariously through their children.

 

Experience:

  • DeLisa opens up about how she was more concerned with surviving than purpose when she was a single parent.

 

Scriptures:

  • Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.Matthew 11:29-30 (KJV)

 

  • “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;”James 1:19 (KJV)

 

 

  • “Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.Romans 14:13 (ESV)

 

  • Train up a child in the way he should go;
        even when he is old he will not depart from it.
    Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)

 

  • You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.James 4:2-3 (ESV)

 

Hold Yourself Accountable:

  • You need to lean on God.

 

Apply the Kingdom Principle:

  • “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)

 

Take Action Now:

  • Commit to spend more time with God each day.
