Well, Monday was one of those best-laid-plans kind of days. But I couldn’t wait till next Monday to share this one with you all! If you’re new to this series, I give you two coloring sheets – one for you and one for a younger child. Same idea, but everyone gets their own page at their level of coloring ability. 🙂
And as you color together, talk about Psalm 139:9-10.
I used to travel more, and have lived in and seen some wonderful places. But I have also experienced dangers – even facing bears out in the Alaskan wilderness or encountering storms at 20000 feet over the Atlantic. And I’ve learned that fear has this way of overpowering faith if we let it. Such a powerful emotion! And yet we must keep repeating the truth to ourselves – taking every fearful thought captive and setting it in its place by stating emphatically what we KNOW is true. God never, ever abandons His children. David knew this, even though time and time again he found himself in terrible danger, being hunted by an angry jealous king Saul. David was wonderful at telling God his fears (and his angers!) and then turning to praise and thanksgiving in the end. He KNEW and clung to the truth that no matter where he was or what was happening, God’s hand was holding him. And if we belong to God, then we too can be confident that He is always just a “Help!” away…
And we know that no matter what we face in this life, God is leading us on to beauty and goodness forever in His presence. Oh glory! No matter what I’ve seen on this earth, nothing will be more glorious than that!
