God’s Promises

Need a little faith-booster? Take a moment to remember God’s faithfulness. Even as we witness terrible events such as the devastating tornado in Oklahoma, violence, and unrest in many parts of the world, we often grow discouraged and fearful. And although I can offer no quick answers as to why bad things happen, I know that we have a God who loves us, is outside of time, and sees the end as well as the beginning. And this powerful God promises His faithfulness to us. As we seek Him in humility, He promises to never forsake us.

I’ve published a new story time lesson over at Groovy Storytimes about Noah’s Ark and the promise of the rainbow. What a wonderful way to teach children about God’s faithfulness and covenant with us. Take a moment to check it out, and have fun having story hour with your children!

“The rainbow that I have put in the sky will be my sign to you and to every living creature on earth. It will remind you that I will keep this promise forever.” Genesis 9:12-13, CEV

Unconditional Love

1 John 3:1a “Think how much the Father loves us. He loves us so much that he lets us be called his children, as we truly are.” (CEV)

With Valentine’s Day approaching, we have a perfect opportunity to teach young children about God’s love for us. I have a new storytime lesson up over at Groovy Storytimes. This lesson uses the story about a parent’s love for his child, and the child’s insecurities about that love, as a springboard for discussing our relationship with our Heavenly Father.

Enjoy the lesson with your children, and remember how much we are loved, even though we are imperfect and weak. The famous children’s song really does sum it up best:

“Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.”

Blessings to you!
