Jesus For Kids
“You +Child+Tragedies” Do you seize the opportunity to share Jesus with your child?
Sometimes people are faced with divorce, even though they do not want it or even though they fight it. If this has occurred with you, did you seize the opportunity to share with your child that you love him/her? Did you tell your child that, “Jesus loves you?” Did you let your child know that God will take care of both of you no matter what? Did you let your child know, you do not necessarily know about the future, but you know who holds your future, and that it is God?
Have you ever been faced with foreclosure? Have you ever actually lost your house through foreclosure? That can be a painful and emotional experience. Loosing your house and having to find another place to stay can be devastating. Did you seize the opportunity to let your child know that God will make a way for you? Did you show your child that you did believe that God would never leave you nor forsake you? Did you share with your child that this situation was only temporary and that God will be giving you bigger and better things in life?
Have you ever been so sick that you thought you just might not make it? Have you ever been in so much pain that you found it almost unbearable? Pain and suffering can wear and tear on you physically and emotionally. Did you seize the opportunity to allow your child to see you praising God? Did your child see you praising God for keeping you through it all? Did your child see you praising God believing that He will bring you through this? Have things been so bad for you sometimes that all you could do is say “Jesus” or “Jesus help me?” Has your child witnessed this of you? This is a good example of Jesus for kids.
These are just a few of the tragedies you may encounter in life. I am sure there are many of you that have been through worse. Always keep in mind to seize the opportunity to share Jesus during those hard times.
Ephesians 6:10 Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power.
