Our lives are like puzzles aren’t they? We have lots of the pieces, and we keep getting new ones. However, we can’t see what the picture is going to look like in the end. Only God sees the finished work. Only He knows how they all fit together. Only He knows His plan for us.
We’re going to show preschoolers God’s plan through the life of the Bible character Joseph this month. Nowhere in the Bible is God’s ultimate plan easier to see than through the story of Joseph. From his fabulous colorful coat to his time spent in jail to his saving the people of Egypt from famine, Joseph’s story truly illustrates that God had a plan. And, even though Joseph didn’t know God’s complete plan, he trusted it and he continued to trust God.
We are excited to partner with you and share with your preschooler that God has a plan for them. God gives us pieces of our puzzle as we go through life, and they all fit together. They are all part of His great plan for us!
