Our preschoolers are learning an important verse this month. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid … for the Lord your God goes with you.” Deuteronomy 31:6, NIV. We want to teach our preschool friends to recite this verse when something scares them, maybe it’s a stormy night or they are trying something new
But, have you ever applied it to your life? It’s a verse that we need to remember as parents too. When your toddler is crying and you can’t figure out why, be strong and courageous because God is with you. When potty-training seems to have taken over the entire household routine and you fear you will never leave the house again, be strong and courageous for God is with you. When it’s time for four-year-old shots and you can’t bear the terror in your son’s eyes, be strong and courageous because God is with you. God is with you each and every minute of each and every day. You can count on Him in the scary times and exhausting times. Be brave! God is with you!
We will do our best to make the Bible Stories this month come alive in the hearts of your kids so you can make moments happen in your home where it really counts.
