Mommy & Me Monday: Colossians 1:17

Welcome to Mommy & Me Mondays. Take a few minutes to color with a little one in your life (or not-so-little one, or your inner-little one!) and reflect together on this week’s verse!

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on the earth, visible and invisible…all things have been created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:16-17

Things don’t always go the way we want or plan in our lives. From not getting the toy we wanted for our birthday, to not getting the job or house we were so hoping for, and everything in between. Sad things happen to us all and it can even feel like everything is terrible, awful, and very bad. But here is our great comfort: Jesus is Lord of everything. He made it all and holds it all together. And He is GOOD. He sees our hurt, and when we are confused or frustrated. Tell Him all about how you are feeling – He is listening! Then choose to trust Him to bring about good and perfect things in your life and in the world. The One who made the sunsets and starry skies and keeps everything moving along is watching over each of His children personally and carefully.

“Take heart, for you are worth more than many sparrows.” Luke 12:7
