I showered this morning and did what millions of men across America will do today. I picked up my wife's shampoo to use on my own hair. As I looked at the name of the shampoo it inspired hope! Could this shampoo really live up to its name? You can see from the top of my head a full repair (for me) would be a notable miracle. It would take something almost the magnitude of raising Lazarus from the dead (after three days in the tomb). I really do not have anything left to "repair," I need a full regeneration!
As I thought about the faith struggle to bring life from the very pits of death (hair from near total baIdness), I likened it to the plight of many parents I speak to as I travel across America who are in the middle of a teen crisis that looks pretty much impossible to heal.
We were in that sort of a crisis a few years ago. It looked like we were down for the final count. But God had a different plan. We watched Him snatch our teen daughter out of the jaws of depression, rebellion, eating disorders, self mutilation, and hopelessness. He did a "Full Repair" on our family.
He is in the business of bringing life out of the cold grave. He wants to do that for you as well. We are praying for you today. Let us know what your family needs so that we know exactly how to pray.
