Daughter dating an unbeliever
More than losing myself, though, I lost the ability to relate to my heavenly Father. Right now, we’re just focusing on what you (and I) experienced, and how you can heal.I certainly didn’t think that God had anything to say, or even cared, about the mangled, overturned vehicle in our living room. This isn’t meant to judge divorced parents, or to deter parents from getting divorced for legitimate reasons (abuse or adultery).
For parents who are currently struggling with a child (of any age) who has either strayed from their Christian faith or never professed Jesus as Lord of their life, this will serve as practical guidance to help you manage what is a very difficult reality. If you do, I’d like to know what you’re currently struggling with and how you’re managing.During our years speaking at various Christian conferences, my husband has received numerous requests from parents for his “famous” courtship questions.However, he has been hesitant to make them available, since it is easy for people to want a formula for courtship.Reflecting back on that experience, I offer these suggestions to help you reach out to your wayward child. The real problem is that they don’t see Jesus clearly. If your daughter rejects Jesus, don’t pretend everything is fine. If your son is not a Christian, he’s not going to act like one.The best thing you can do for them—and the only reason to do any of the following suggestions—is to show them Christ. Only God can save your son or daughter, so keep on asking that he will display himself to them in a way they can’t resist worshipping him for. For every unbelieving child, the details will be different. You know that he has forsaken the faith, so don’t expect him to live by the standards you raised him with.
