Whether you're navigating faith conversations or figuring our what it means to do school at home, we are all in this together.
This month we are talking about Upside Down. When Jesus came, He turned everything in the world “upside-down.” Next week is Easter! So this week we are getting ready for it and what Jesus did. Jesus not only paid for our sins, but He also rose from death to live again. We celebrate His empty tomb? What we have to talk about today—or any day—is Jesus and how much He loves us. I hope each and every one of us will remember that.
God has known and loved YOU since the beginning of time. Since long before you were born, He knew that you, me, all of us would make mistakes and try to live our own way without Him. So Jesus entered the world to turn everything right again.
Students, we totally understand that this time can be overwhelming and chaotic; what does God say about seasons like this and what can we do? Take some time to pray as a family, whether it’s for peace or for people who might be struggling with illness. This is a great time to remember that God is good and in control.
1. What are some main things you remember being worried about in the past?
2. Of those, which ones do you remember ending up fine? Which ones did turn out to be a problem?
3. In the last week, what have you been worried about the most?
4. What do you think it would look like to “surrender” those worries to God?
Take some time to share what you are thankful for and asking for. Then pray for those things together.
