The Recipe this week was “Pretzels from Heaven”. Can you guess what the Bible story was?

The Word:  TRUST

Bible Verse: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.” Proverbs 3:5

Read the Story: Elijah and the Drought (I Kings 17:1-9)

Prayer: Dear God, I am glad that You are so much bigger than I am. You know
all about my life. You see everything that goes on around me. You
know what things worry or bother me before I even tell anyone. I am
glad that I believe in You. Help me to trust You more each day. Amen

Parents
Write down three situations in which you need to trust God
right now in your life. Each time you start to worry about
them this week, start praying instead.

Birth-Age 2
Each time you pray, you are modeling your trust in Jesus.
Your child will learn that you are looking to God for help,
guidance, strength and wisdom as they hear your prayers.
Make mealtime and bedtime prayers important as well as
all throughout the day. Intentionally allow your child to
hear you talk to Jesus!

Age 3-Kindergarten
Play a trust-building game as a family.
blindfoldBlindfold one person, then have another
person lead them around the house on a trust
walk (take them around furniture, over and
under items, up and down stairs, etc). After
the trust walk ask them questions such as,
“How did it feel to not be able to see where
you were going?” “How much did you have to
trust your guide?” “In real life, do you always
know what is going to happen next?” “Who
can you trust to guide you through life?”
