I am writing about our faith today.
Bringing your family closer to God. That is words that really have been on my heart for awhile. I want my girls to know God and all that he can do for us. I want them to know he will protect them. I want them to know they can call upon his name at any given time. I want them to know that he will help them choose the right friends. I want them to know he will deliver them from the evil one.
Yet, I wasn’t sure how to get those messages across to them. I wanted to feel like I was doing a good job, but in my heart I knew that more needed to be done. I entered a local Christian Book Store and right there at the table at the front door was a devotion book for little girls by Veggie Tales. God knew what he was doing by leading me into the store at that given time. We started this book in the New Year and we do it every single night before bedtime. It is just the girls and I all snuggled in the bed and reading the day’s devotion. The devotion is spread out into 365 days so you do a devotion a day. The devotions are so easy to understand and comprehend that it is opening up so many conversations between the girls and I. Not only are they learning more about God and his awesomeness for us, but I am learning too.
The devotions are broken into a bible verse, a devotion about the bible verse and then a bedtime prayer. It teaches about the golden rule, friendships, honesty, and etc. I am setting stones hopefully in their life now that will lead them into a lifetime of calling unto our almighty God everyday to guide them. God is powerful and not only do the girls need to remember and get closer to God but their mommy does as well.
Thank you Lord for putting this great devotion book in front of my eyes.
You amaze me with your powers. We are growing closer to you and it feels so good!
