With so many suffering around the world today, let’s remind ourselves of the truth. Let us push aside fear and strengthen our faith. Know that across the world someone is praying for your preservence. I am sure many are praying for you.
Some may try to fool you into thinking prayer is useless, that there is no God, and that the Bible is fictitious. I challenge you to spend time in prayer and reading the Bible. Sure some parts of the book are difficult to comprehend or swallow, but do not let that stop you. I pray you feel some sense of comfort, hope, love, or peace after reading the scriptures below.
If you enjoyed spending time in God’s word, but do not have a Bible Dollar Tree sells them for a dollar plus tax. Even better download the free YouVersion Bible App where you have access to the Bible in different versions including Easy to Read Version. There are also devotional plans for pretty much every possible situation. You can even invite friends to join a plan so that you can all discuss it. All images with scripture in this post came from YouVersion, some were created by them and some were created by myself using the app.
This is such an easy, cute activity to do with children and just in time for Valentine’s Day! The idea came from my 1st grader’s Children’s Church. It is a great visual to show God’s intentions for love.
You will need just 5 items….
Fill the cup up about a fourth of the way. On the paper towel draw a large heart and several smaller hearts nearby using the ink pen. Now fill in the large heart with red marker. This one represents God’s love for us.
Now place the bottom of the paper towel in the cup of water.
After a several minutes, your young ones will witness how we can share and spread love with others.
As the smaller hearts are filled the large one turns white again so I took the lesson a step further. It is so important to continuously spend time in prayer, scripture, and worship. Because that is how Christian hearts stay full.
I recently read a quote that resonated with me to my core. Our family’s spiritual life has been so enriched since serving our church, but I’m suddenly at a low and this was right on time.
YOU’RE 👏WORTHY 👏OF 👏A 👏FULL 👏CUP☕
Sorry to be extra, but it is so true! I hope you enjoy doing this simple activity with the kiddos. Until next time, take care💞
