Mommy & Me Mondays is back! Enjoy this week’s set of coloring pages with a little one in your life (inner children included!) and spend some time talking about Psalm 145.
Sir Bumble felt all alone when the dragon attacked the castle. He thought he had to fight that monster all by himself, and he felt scared. But God (the little sparrow) was right beside him the whole time. When we are overwhelmed with fear or feelings, God seems far away, or like He isn’t real at all. But God promises that He is near to those who call on Him in truth.
But what might that mean? To call on Him in truth? I think it means we call on Him with faith that He is near and will answer. Faith means we are really believing He is listening. Faith means we really expect Him to answer somehow. Faith holds on to God’s promises and expects Him to keep them, no matter how our feelings are going crazy. And then, we will see Him act. (read James 1 and Hebrews 11 for more on faith!)
Faith means putting all our trust in God and not in ourselves or our circumstances. We say “Feelings are just feelings but God is still God and He is my good Daddy.”
“Be strong, and take heart, and wait on the Lord.” ~Psalm 27:14
