How we can help our children and give them hope in these days we live.

Jesus loves me this I know.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Do your children know?

Do your children know who Jesus Christ is?

  • Yes ablsoulely and they know Him as Lord and Savior.
  • Not sure we go to church, I think so.
  • I do not know. They are old enough to decide for themselves.
  • They know God but not sure if they know about Jesus
  • We taught them about Jesus and they have drifted
  • No there are many paths, God is in everyone
  • Yes he was a profit and teacher.
  • Not sure but I want to know Him as Savior and tell my kids

The time for Salvation is now.

Do you know this Jesus, parents? If you do not know Jesus and have His assurance how can our children possibly know? Children learn from the home. Jesus saves. We need to invite Jesus into our heart as Lord and Savior of our life and repent of sin to be saved. We have a choice on whom we will follow. The God of all creation or the prince of this world, Satan. Parents stand up to the occasion and opportunity to guide your children to truth and life. Parents you can give your children the hope of Jesus that every heart longs for.

Evil will continue in the world as it has in all of recorded time, until Jesus returns. Prophecy is unfolding today at a rapid pace. Parents Jesus is calling for us to heed to Him and direct our children's path. Lead them to the Savior of the World and together grow in Christ. If Jesus be for us, then who can be against us? Not one!

Give your children the love of Jesus to stand against the enemy of this world. With Jesus they will know how to deal with the bullies in the school or say no to drugs, sex or alcohol. Jesus is confidence and assurance. He picks us when we fall and hurt. He wipes our tears. He is the perfect Father. Only Jesus is perfect. We are not, our kids are not. We do not have to be. Jesus has paid the price. Jesus molds and shapes us when we are His. His love never fails. Do not be deceived by the enemy. Go after your kids and tell them Jesus loves them today.

On this Christmas, share the good news with your children. Jesus is the best gift ever given to the entire world. We only have to receive the blessed gift of Jesus. He was born to die so we could live.

My Love, Skye

Share the one and true love.

Many ask, ‘how can we protect our children and grandchildren from the evil that continues to rise in the world we live today?' First it needs to start in the home where the child lives. Our children need to know the love of Jesus Christ at a very young age, coming out of the gate so they grow up with hope in a fallen world. Jesus Christ is the only guarantee in the world that does not change.

Jesus is always the good news! Children need to know that Jesus saves and He is our comfort and shield. They need to know He is living and real and loves them. Our children need hope and truth. They need to know they do not have to go it alone not ever, that Jesus is with them. They need to know when difficult times arise Jesus is with them to walk and carry them through it. Children need to know they are not it, nor do they need to be, Jesus is it and loves them.

I write to you the truth. Parents single or not, grandparents, aunts, uncles, kids, foster parents, man or woman, God parents, boy or girl Jesus will change your life and your children's life, and your children's, children's life. If not how could millions testify to the fact that they are made new through Jesus and their life has a new meaning and they are victorious. Millions share the same testimony. They were once lost then found. Millions and millions testify to the fact they were once blinded but now they see. Because Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior. When Jesus is invited into our heart we are forgiven our sin and made new creatures in Him. We are transformed in His image. How could millions share the good news of salvation and how their miserable lives now have victory and is not one of defeat? How could millions and millions be amazed and have a change in heart if Jesus were not who He is?

The major problem that comes up is this. If moms and dads do not know Jesus then how can they raise their children up to know? They cannot. Parents are searching for answers to encourage their children and give them hope in an upside down, mixed up, fallen world. Many parents wring their hands in despair and are afraid to let their children live life. It is no wonder because there is an enemy in this world. The devil wants to snatch up any and all who God loves. God loves all people including you and your children.

Adolescent and young adult woman and men today seek to harm and kill innocent people in our schools and public venues. We cannot be rid of crime and it will escalate over time but our children can have assurance that no matter what circumstances they might face God is with them and loves them.They long to know hope. Every human heart born longs for the hole inside to be filled with the love of God. God created us in His image and He wants to be the whole filler. He gave us a choice. Many search in all the wrong places never getting satisfied always seeking for the hole filler. Children have this need as well. Our God makes our children resilient but they long to feel safe. Jesus is our refuge and strength. His love for us does not change nor is it contingent on what we do or do not do. Our children do not need to learn how to be manipulative, rebellious, hurtful, or angry. It is our nature. The love of Jesus never fails. His love wears on us and moves out the dark.

We need to talk to Jesus, share Jesus, pray with Jesus, praise Jesus, sing Jesus songs, thank Jesus with our children, allot! His love rubs off. If we do not have it, we can not give it. It is never to late with Jesus, in this lifetime. NO matter how far down you may be or your family may be, Jesus is waiting. He has open arms. Satan is the mastermind behind all of the evil and wickedness in the world. Jesus has not fallen, Satan fell. Jesus is living and He is still the Savior who came to save the world from sin. Until He returns sin will run ramped. Satan and his followers are not in hell, yet.

When love and consistency are in the home children thrive and grow. It does not mean we are perfect, nor do we need to be. It is impossible. There is only one perfect. It is not us nor the children, it is Jesus. Jesus is the glue that keeps us together. He does not change. No matter the situation when Jesus is in the center fold of family there is nothing that cannot be overcome. Jesus lights the way and shows us the path to take. He loves all the world but many choose to deny Him or turn their heads afraid they might have to change.

Jesus does the changing. His grace makes our sin nature to fall from us. We are given new hearts, transformed. We cannot transform our selves. No self help class or group therapy can do it. Jesus can do it. Don't get me wrong physicians are a gift but it is Jesus who works through them to help and to heal us. We need a Savior to save us from our sin. Jesus came to save us. Our children are our responsibility to raise and care for. Jesus wants to bless the family. Teach your young children to know Jesus. He is our friend and only wants our love.

Parents if you do not know this Jesus who laid His life down for us so we could have life and more abundant maybe you are thinking it could be the time. When a parent knows Jesus the light shines in them and the children do notice. Jesus is contagious. When we know Him, we intuitively know how to handle situations that used to baffle us. When children see assurance in their parents they are reassured all things will work out.

Children learn from their role models.They certainly will not learn from the world about Jesus. His name was taken out of the school system and public venues around 1968. Evil and wicked behavior got its kick start in the public school system after God and prayer were banned. It is a sad situation that the creator of the universe is not allowed in our schools. It really is heart breaking. How sad that we have allowed this to happen in our Nation. It must break Gods heart that He is pushed out and more so each day in the government, school, medical and public venues. The USA has turned our back on Almighty God and blasphemed His Holy name.

Parents get into a Bible, Jesus teaching church, take your children and go with them. If you had a bad experience or were taught other then Jesus find yourself another church. There are thousands. Keep searching. You will know. Jesus is the only hope in the world we live. No one else will do. No one else has prepared a home for us in eternity with no tears or sadness. Heaven and Hell are real places.There is life after death. It does not end here.

We do have a choice on who we will follow. One day our children will make a choice on who they will follow when accountable age. Give them the assurance and love of Jesus. Jesus is not a religion but a personal relationship. When we know Jesus He is our friend, comforter, shield, guide, teacher, healer. He is a personal Lord who resides in us. He will never leave nor forsake us. Who or what else can give us a promise like this? There is none, no not one. No Buddha, mother Teresa, golden calf or money, can give us or buy us the promise of eternal life. Jesus has paid the ransom for us. Salvation is to receive His free gift.

GOD does not want us living like a train wreck or in fear over our children’s future. Jesus is the future. Give your little children hope. You may not have had it growing up but it is not too late. Jesus is the hope and promise. DO not waste another moment. Jesus is the only system that works. He wrote the book on it. Children want truth and consistency. Jesus is the only consistent that does not change. Jesus is the only given. Many children dominate the household the parents are so upside down. Is your household upside down? Jesus can fix it. He fixed mine. I know!

Jesus can repair a broken heart, dry a tear, take the fear, pay a bill, calm the stress, repair a marriage or send you a marriage, take the addiction, heal the mind, clean up the household, calm the nerves, take the shame, wipe out the guilt, bring home the wayward child, pay the school loans, heal the broken leg, rock you to sleep or give you the words to share, find you a job or pay your rent. He can bring a family in strife to a peace that transcends all understanding. Nothing, no nothing is impossible for Jesus for those that love HIM.

Share the good news with your children. Jesus is the best gift ever given to the entire world. We only have to receive the blessed gift of Jesus. He was born to die so we could live.


My Love, Skye

God bless you, sister in Christ. Your words flow so beautifully, reflective of His love & grace. Our children absolutely need to know His love & understand that He is indeed the One constant in our lives. There is no "living"'without the Lord but a mere existence, so empty and unfulfilled.

He truly gives us life and victory through His unconditional love. He will indeed guide us in all things and our paths become clear. The changes within us come from the Lord and there won't ever be a single regret in knowing Him, not just knowing of Him, but truly having & building a relationship with Him.

God bless you.

Voted up & shared!

Jackie Lynnley Thank you so much precious woman for coming to visit. It is so awesome when parents teach their kiddos GOD's truth. It makes life allot easier for these beloved little ones. They could be spared much grief. Many children are a mixed up case. Gods grace is amazing and the ones lost, He will find. I know He found me and I was one crazy mixed up kid and rebellious teen. I knew about a God but He was a punishing God. Our God is Love and grace and mercy Amen. He has forgiven us already. How wonderful to know the truth. There is a sister on hubs Deborrak K Ogins she just published a childrens book for 12yrs to teens and up. She is brilliant. We can get His word out there. We are His vessels. The harvest is ready the workers are few. God Bless you precious Jackie.

You left such a nice comment on faiths hub to skye to day. I am touched. Thank You for taking the time to write and send hugs of love, hubs. Wow that was a mouthful. You are a woman after Gods own heart. Way to go girl. Keep going dear sista. Love, Skye

My parents taught me to love Jesus and hopefully I taught my children to. Once we have done that there is not much else we can do but we owe them that. It is clear today that parents do not teach their children about God's love or His Son and it is such a shame. You would think with the world falling apart it would bring many to Him but I suppose satan has some convincing alternatives.

Yeah bro we never graduate. We are always getting pruned and shaped up. From hope to hope, glory to glory, faith to faith all because of Jesus. His mercies and grace are new each day. Glory to God.

Faith is a woman after Gods heart she is so very precious indeed. A gem in the chest of Gods treasures!

I'm happy, dear Skye that wonderful Faith Reaper brought you to the attention of us waiting in the wings when she produced that splendid Hub tribute to yourself - isn't she just amazing?

Regarding the children....I suppose that all we can do is quietly do our bit, and hope that each drop eventually becomes a torrent, which drives away those unnecessary fears which stubbornly try to cling to innocence for a free ride.

' America the brave....America the free! '....I'm sure that the great American public are looking forward to the day when they can once again,unashamedly, and unabatedly declare that they are wholeheartedly proud to be truly American once more, instead of being let down, time and again by those who are paid handsomely to hold the honourable privilege of being faithful representatives and servants to the American people.As you've suggested with crystal clarity Skye, a return to the Godly foundations of your great nation could only help to make it prosper once more for everyone, and not just the few.

It is such a pleasure to become acquainted with you, dear sister, and you are always welcome to fly over for a read but by way of disclaimer, have to say that God hasn't finished with me yet, and there is still much I need to work on :)

Thank you,

With Sincerest Love in Him,

Romeos Quill, Dear brother how nice to meet up with you in my neighborhood. I am honored with your heartfelt comment, Romeos. Thank you so much. It really touched my heart. You are a man of charity and compassion!

Brother you got the nail on the head when you mention parenting. It is a cycle! For the grace of God go I. Our children and children's children so need the Lord. Like who does not, right. He is our hope and help in every present trouble and need. The band aids are but temporary as you so gracefully mentioned. If the parents do not know how can they pass it along? They cannot. So the whole lot stays in the dark.

Well God does the saving and he has given His children victory. We need to be the warriors in Christ and fight for life and show up!

So many children have no clue as to where to turn to fill the longing in their being. What is good and what is evil? May our Lord help us bro to share the good news of the Gospel.

We have no one to blame but ourselves. We have turned from God as a nation. We have been so blessed in the USA. Founded on Biblical principals will we come around? It is possible with God, but we must choose. No time for lazy. I speak for myself as well because sometimes I know I could do more. The battle is with the enemy. He tries to keeps us down. We got to dress for serious battle each day. God help us dear brother to suit up and show up in the armor of God.

It is so nice to have a new brother from England. May Gods light continue to shine in your works warrior. I will be over soon for a read. You can count on it.

My Love in Christ, Skye

Dear Skye2day;

Such a lovely and heartfelt Hub you have written here.If I ever have children, would sure want them to be brought up with Christian values.The Wisdom behind the family unit cannot be trumped, but people test it all the time, thinking that there is a better way, but unfortunately ends in such disappointment, with the community having to take up the slack of inadequate and sometimes downright lazy parenting.You seem full of hope Skye, and is a wonderfully contagious quality, and your writing clearly illustrates how special you are.Sharing :)

Thank you;

With Sincerest Love,

Jane Hello sister. Oh yes what a Blessing indeed when our little ones know they do not have to be it. Jesus is it. He has us covered. I admire young ones that come to faith early in life. They have the whole world in front of them and more time to enjoy the light of Christ on earth. Praise God I pray many come to Him that are lost. Our children need Jesus. We all do but our children so need hope. It is up to us to raise them in the way they should go. My Love precious one. You keep going you will. Phil 4:13 Thank you for stopping in for a visit. I am touched. Love, Skye

Skye what a great hub. What a privlige for a child to be brought up in a home where their parents love the lord. I had that privlige and am so thankful to my parents for how they influenced me and brought me up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. What a security for these little ones to know that Jesus loves them and then to one day understand that Jesus bore their sins on the cross. God Bless

billybuc Hello dear bro. Thank you for coming to the neighborhood to visit. Yeah long comments. It seems to me when ever Jesus is topic out come skeptics and believers and the tolerant. Jesus is the only way to peace and eternal life, heaven. We do go one place or the other. If one soul can be saved from hell praise the Lord. I hope to continue doing His work. We Christians are an out numbered lot but we are not out powered. May our Lord touch the children and those that are lost and this generation to the truth. Holy Spirit power is moving to touch hearts. What good is it to gain the world but loose our soul? God Bless you precious brother. You too keep going, sharing the love. Hugs galore Bill. Skye

My goodness, I don't think I have ever seen such long comments on a hub. Obviously others agree with you, which they should.

As a former teacher I can't begin to tell you the number of children I taught who were missing hope, and this is in middle school. How sad that is, and it must be eradicated. Hope must be in the heart of every child in this country or we have failed them.

Keep spreading the message my friend.

I was born a Hindu and took interest in Buddhism. However, as a Spiritualist, I'm religiously tolerant. Religious tolerance is very necessary in the world troubled by religious terrorism.

We need to teach children about our belief, but we must also tell them to respect others' faith.

Hello my dear Sista'

Love, love , love this hub filled with exhortation and encouragement. All of us are role models to children. One adult can have not only a lasting impact on a child's life but can change the course from hopeless to hope as a child of God. We live Jesus and His Spirit shines to all those we come in contact with.

I smiled at your expression: God is the hole filler in our hearts. There is nothing/no one who can fill that hole other than our creator and redeemer.

Your heart bursts from this page dear Skye ... I see compassion, a call to man up, a love for little ones, a passion to shout out the good news and hope that lies in a relationship with Jesus.

God Bless you Sista' Keep on writing for His Glory,

Love and Hugs,

Mekenzie

You're so right, Skye! "They need to know they do not have to go it alone not ever, that Jesus is with them." Knowing and believing that God is ever present makes all the difference in the world when confronted with difficulty. If adults demonstrate this, the children will believe and act upon it. Thanks for sharing these thoughts!

You are so precious, indeed. Your family reminds me of Abraham, you guys just keep growing and growing. God Bless you my dear sister.

Oh yes do a preview of your new book. I will be the first one over. JK I will be over though. I am very proud of you girl. So that is where you have been?

Skye, We are on one accord muy siste! “GODWATCH!” is the term I used while my children where away and when they were at the University! I taught them that God was always present with them and was always watching…

It is my grandson Xzavius who is born around the same time as Jayce. Since then I have had two more grand daughters to be born; Isis & Jade. They are at such an adorable age! In total I actually have 22 grandchildren…. WOW! I know! The Lord did not give us all these grandchildren for no reason. Yes we must leave this next generation the greatest legacy possible; To teach them about JESUS! Again this is a great article and I pray that many are encouraged by this!

The Lord placed it on my heart to write a book for children, their families and their friends… It is called “The ENCHANTING LEGENDS of SHILOH MANSION!” Its in the works and looks like it will be out early summer! Hmmm I just may do a peak preview for The HubPages! Hugs and much love my sister! GOD BLESS!

Wow Skye, beautifully done! It is so true what you said about sharing the love of Jesus with our children not only in words but in how we live everyday, speaking it and showing it. My husband has a testimony that he grew up learning about Jesus from the church and in the home, but the actual witnessing of a life lived with Jesus was not felt, and he eventually chose to turn away - but praise God he returned...and his testimony is such a reminder to us with our own children that it is not enough to tell but to live it, and to live it in the love that our Father has given us. Everything you said about how God is able...He is so able and so wonderful!

Praise the LORD for your witness and your faithfulness to spread His words and encouragment!

Love you Sister!

Debborah K Ogans My sister. This is too special. I have been thinking about you. In fact I was getting ready to come visit your hubs very soon. God is so awesome. He sent you at a perfect time. He knew what you would write and you are an encourager. I am grateful for your comment. I must have edited this hub 20 times before publish then 3 times after the fact. The enemy was really trying to put a skid on it. You know girl if it touches one heart that needs to hear God has His plans, Amen.

The world around us is going to binterestingng this coming year. Stay strong in the Lord Children of God. I so love what you added to share with our little ones. God watch, how wonderful. Now that Jayce and your little guy Zeb (right) are two plus they are into these cartoons and some are downright scary. Jayce was scared the other night over monsterer. I was like where did he hermonsterer. Well hello oTVtv who knows. I told him Jesus is our help in every need. He was our protection. To use the name and the monster must flee.

I wondered where you have beenchildren'srens series. How exciting. I cant wait, do we get to indulge at hubpages? Sister I love you and it is so nice to see you. I will be over soon. I have bon-lineline many hours, I will come back and read when my eyes do not burn. Hugs galore my preciFriendeind. So how many more grandchildren siZeb zeb? I think you said one more was on the way, any more after that little one? Grandma you should beGuinnessness. Love you. Skye

Skye, You are such a Dear! This is absolutely Wonderful! How refreshing! It has been a while since we have interacted. I pray that you and yours had a Blessed Merry Christmas...

Despite everything that is going on about us in this world we can always have HOPE with the LORD in our lives! No doubt it is quite evident that the WORD of GOD is being fulfilled! It is so very important to share JESUS with your children and grandchildren... JESUS is the most precious "GIFT!" to mankind!

You have made some excellent points here! As you well stated: "Many ask, how can we protect our children and grandchildren from the evil that continues to rise in the world we live today?' First it needs to start in the home where the child lives. Our children need to know the love of Jesus Christ at a very young age, coming out of the gate so they grow up with hope in a fallen world. Jesus Christ is the only guarantee in the world that does not change." Amen! Yes indeed!

It is our responsibility as parents and grandparents to teach them about the Lord as well as model His principles within our own lives! Children learn more by what we do than what we say. God is Love! How can we teach them about Love and not share the LORD?

As you well stated:"Parents if you do not know this Jesus who laid His life down for us so we could have life and more abundant maybe you are thinking it could be the time. When a parent knows Jesus the light shines in them and the children do notice. Jesus is contagious. When we know Him, we intuitively know how to handle situations that used to baffle us. When children see assurance in their parents they are reassured all things will work out." Amen! & AMEN! Yes indeed!

We are seeing the results of, No longer welcoming prayer in the schools.... When we teach our children that they can pray at anytime anywhere It brings Him into the equasion... it makes God as a top priority! I strongly believe in placing them on "Godwatch" whenever they are away. They are taught about imaginary super heroes. It is important to let them know that JESUS is Omnipotent! He in essence is our True Super Hero with all Power!

Sharing the Lord with our children and or grandchildren better prepares them for the unexpected! The Lord can give them a sense of security that is found in no other wherever they might be. You cannot be with them everyhere but you can let them know about God's Omnipresence and that HE IS everywhere ALL the time! This helps to give them a healthy self confidence and let's them know that whenever or if in harms's way they are not alone... They can reachout to the LORD & PRAY!

As the Word teaches us:" Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart..." Praise God! Thank You Lord for Your precious "GIFT!" of Eternal Life! Truly accepting the LORD as our personal SAVIOR within our hearts assures us of a continued life with Him through Eternity!

Skye this is marvelous and inspiring! It is also confirming I am working on a series for children.... May we continue to witness to our families, loves ones, friends and the world at large the goodness of the LORD! Thank you my sister in the Lord, as always for sharing your heartfelt insightful expressions! May this be a wonderfully spiritually and materially Blessed HAPPY NEW YEAR in JESUS NAME! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace Blessings! Until next time GOD BLESS YOU!

knightheart Touched to read your comment. You are such a gifted writer kh. You are a man after Gods heart. Keep going my brother. You will I know it. Phil 4:13 Thank you so much for your encouragement. I am grateful for you.

Nothing is impossible with God and there is a huge revival with teens happening. Many are coming to Jesus. Praise God. The enemy is hard at work to devour in these days we live. If parents taught their little ones at home out the gate how they could so touch other lives and be assured and confident in Jesus, Amen. We can only hope parents will take off the blinders and see. God is IAM and he is the heart bender.

One day bro we will meet in Heaven and glory to God for the host of bros and sisters we will meet. Oh come soon Jesus. Love you kh. Be in touch. I do hope you write again at the hubs. Hugs to you. Skye

Glad to have done something positive for the cause for a change...really have let that go, unfortunately. Another story for another time. I loved your comment to me about being outnumbered, but thinking about many of the stories in the Bible, didn't God use impossible odds against His servants to show everyone His total power and righteousness? I think of Gideon leading only 3oo men against their pagan foes. Many thought there was no way they could overwhelm an army so much larger, but again, God used impossible odds not only to teach the children of Israel a valuable lesson, but also taught God's enemies a good one too! Praise God for his Wisdom!

We believers just have to keep reminding ourselves of our Biblical heroes who overcame impossible odds! I know these stories are in the Bible for that very purpose, to give today's Godly warriors encouragement and hope against a lost world! Look at David, Moses, and my personal favorite, the Apostle Paul, all had the 'odds' against them and look what happened. Repeatedly, God used these servants to literally change the world at that time!

Of course, our world today is much more complex and larger than in Biblical times, but the fight is the same...Satan is still a powerful, deceitful, and cunning enemy and too many have let down their guard against him allowing wickedness and evil to reign for so many centuries. You are certainly correct that it is NEVER too early to start teaching our children about God, Jesus, and the Bible. Whoever says children don't really understand all of this is wrong...dead wrong! God made it so simple and clear that even children can understand it...we adults need to take a lesson from them for the Bible says, a Child shall lead them! We must be like children and accept the Truth unconditionally, without hesitation, the way God intended it to be, in order to be His servants and enter His Kingdom. In fact, I have no doubts that He is using children of unsaved parents to get the message to them! I have heard that some children have become saved by outside influences and even when opposed by their own parents, somehow the message finally hits home and the parents become saved! Now that, my sister, is the awesome power of God!

Even though the odds are against us, and we have an even more difficult fight in the days ahead, we must do as Paul instructs...we must fight the good fight and finish the race! Will we win? Of course we do...we already know that from prophecy, but the battle will be vicious and many will die standing up for God against an unbelieving world!

It always surprises me to see people believe the most foolish things without question or proof, but when the Truth hits them square in the face with the proof plainly evident, the find some lame excuse to dismiss it or denounce it in some way. All that tells me is that Satan has blinded their hearts and mind at this time, but we are children of the living God and with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, we can overcome our Enemy's tricks and lies.

Yes, my friend, this fight has to be on our knees, the best place for a child of God to be when fighting a powerful enemy. It is God's fight, that is plain, but our part is to do what we can and allow God to do what is necessary. Only He can change the hearts and minds of a fallen world, and even though the end time are upon us and many will go to their doom, we have to try to rescue as many as we can from eternal flames of damnation.

As our nation enters a new year, I pray we all start seeing this country turn around and start living by God's rules. Even a little sign would be a huge blessing, such as our government really standing for the people instead of their own selfish interests!

Take care, my friend, and may God continue to bless you in everything you do! I know when you face Him, He will say, "Well done, good and faithful servant!" Nothing can top that! :)

Knightheart, Brother what a blessing to see you. I am touched. I have missed your presence on these pages. I am really glad you came over. I have a merry heart. Thank you for your comment. Oh Yes indeed I am in prayer and agreement with you. Our leaders need our prayer. May God help them to see the light before it is too late. I realize the enemy is at large in the government and they do not make Godly decisions. We have been a blessed nation but God will withdraw our hedge of protection unless we repent and come back to Him. We have had many warnings starting with 911. The world does not understand what we say but we can pray that parents will come to the light of Jesus before it is too late for them. Parents need to start the kids at the gate, telling them about Jesus. The children will not hear about Him in the world any longer.. I realize Children of God are outnumbered but we can hope and pray that lost parents come to Jesus and show their children the truth in Christ. Some children may come to Christ before the parents and tell their parents the good news of salvation. My point being parents cant you see the world system is not working there is a Lord and Savior He is the way truth and life. This is the answer you seek for your wayward or rebellious child but do you know this Savior? It is not a secret to the world we are in a mess and I pray they see the light of Christ and soon. We are the clay He is the potter, I pray the clay does not harden to the love of Jesus Christ. My heart goes to kids that have no clue and there are many. I am teaching my grandson about Jesus, he is two years old now and they are influenced out of the gate. There is a longing in every heart to know God. Nothing else will fill the hole but people seek to fill it in the wrong places. I know I was one of them. I once lost then found. Praise God. My parents did the best they could I was raised in a church setting. The odd things is until I was saved decades later outside of that church setting, I did not know who this Jesus was. How did I miss that in the teaching or did I miss it? . Nothing is impossible for God to those that believe. He can make a way and He hears our prayers. Join with me praying for the children on this planet brother that they may hear the truth found only in Jesus and soon. I love ya knightheart your words have stirred my Spirit. It is all good. May the peace of God be on you today and always my precious friend. Keep going brother. I wish you the most wonderful and blessed year. Hugs your way, In Christ, Skye.

Great article, Skye...no surprise at all! I agree with all that you have said, but sadly, this nation, too, is following the world to its doom. Just look at the past 60 years. As a teacher, I have seen Christianity practically ripped to shreds, slowly but surely. As a child, we never had to be cautious about saying 'Christmas' or praying, and even recall having the 10 Commandments in our room, but today, God forbid any mention of God, the Bible, Jesus, or anything even close. Goodness, you can't even have a nativity scene in a public place anymore without someone complaining about it violating some misinterpreted law! But let someone complain about Kwanzaa or some other Pagan belief and that is taken to the courts and they win! Totally disgusting! As a public school teacher anything was permitted....Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Season Greetings, but mention Christmas or anything similar, and bam, you get nailed for it! I recall the schools always having a Christmas tree in the schools, even recall each room had one, but now, they are either unused or even more revolting, thrown in the dumpster because the school board forbids them to be displayed anymore because they want to be politically correct! They bought them in the first place decades ago, and now they are dumpster fodder! That is criminal!

Entities like the ACLU and other groups have literally destroyed what this country was founded upon...Christian principals and a close relationship with our Creator and Savior. How did this happen? The answer is as plain as the nose on your face. Our leaders and country have turned their backs on God, letting their false pride dictate this country's policies driving it to its knees as it is now. The Bible clearly states in Psalms: 33:12 that Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord. In the Bible, proof of those nations that disobeyed or turned from God paid a huge price, but does this country learn...apparently not! This nation has turned so far from God and Christian principles that it is a wonder we are still here at all! I love this country, believe me,but the corrupt leaders and the morality of this great nation have literally changed it beyond recognition. The Founding Fathers would turn in their graves if they could see how our Constitution has been ignored and misused, and much of it by our elected government!

Skye, you know I stand by you 1000 percent and know that you are one of God's mighty servants on this Earth! But, it is not only the children that need to know Jesus and the Bible, but our adults too! I know you covered this in your article, but until the adults in this country and the world face the Truth, our children will most likely never hear of the Saving Grace of knowing Jesus ! With so many corrupt leaders in our Congress and elsewhere, unless a major epiphany occurs, I fear our country is headed for disaster at warp speed...just a matter of time before we reach the end of the line!

My prayer is for this country and its leaders to put aside their differences and realize that without God and our complete and I mean COMPLETE obedience to His Word and Guidance, we are all doomed!

Please join with me and pray that our government realizes its pride and foolishness before they run this country into the ground for good!

Bless you, sister, and may God open the hearts and minds of this country's leaders. After all, He allowed them to be in these positions of power, but we all have a part to do to to insure they are doing what they should be doing, not serving their own selfish agendas!

Blessings to you today and always Skye....this is an wonderful writing as yours always are.

I do have a word to say on this sad state of affairs. Most parents in this day do not know God the Father, nor Jesus our Redeemer, our Healer, our Hope, our Salvation. Too many are lost themselves in the fear which is presented on a daily basis in the news media, the failing economy, the terror of kidnappings, murders, drugs and feelings of total inadequacy as they struggle each day to put food on the table for their children to eat. Many simply do not care the way our parents did, and these things were going on even as they grew up and as we.

Somehow, in their generation and ours, the seed of the Way, Truth and Life was instilled in us and those of us who have had ears to her have heard, believe and continue to keep the faith strong....but the ones who have lost jobs, homes, money, due to either storms, layoffs, bank closures, we all know this story well, and did not have the knowledge to begin with or lost it along the way are the ones who are literally unable to help their children understand the Good News of the coming Kingdom. Your writings constantly remind those of us who know to come here for renewal; that there is hope, if only we cling to Him and no other.....we face a truly difficult time ahead, but unless as you write and many of us know, we nor the children will never make it without Faith, and the knowledge that He is our King and will return for us.

Blessings and love my friend....am back online again after a year and many trials....Have a wonderful day !!!!

Lifegate. Brother Blessings. My heart so goes to the children. Many have no idea who this Jesus is. It is sad to see. It is all around us. Young children need the hope of Jesus right out of the gate.

Parents if you do not know Jesus talk to Him. Do it for the sake of your kids, if anything see where God leads you. Jesus is the reason and our children NEED to know the hope found only in Jesus Christ.

Precious bro thank you so much for stopping in. I am always blessed with your visit. Merry merry Christmas back at you and yours. Love in Jesus. your sista, Skye.

"On this Christmas, share the good news with your children. Jesus is the best gift ever given to the entire world." What good and practical advise as was the rest of your hub, Sista! I saw a sign on a church not long ago that said, "Mary wrapped the first Christmas present." Yes, Jesus is the best gift ever and our families need to know of Him. Thanks for the encouragement. You and yours - have a very, very Merry Christmas and a wonderful, blessed, happy New Year!
