Preschool Devotions

Pursue God in Fearful Times

Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us.

Over the past several weeks, our lives have been changed in ways I could not have imagined. As the coronavirus has spread across our country and the world, life has become different for us. In the midst of all that is happening, we have seen a lot of anxiety and fear.

Always Keep busy working for the Lord

John 9:4 (NIrV)
While it is still day, we must do the works of the one who sent me. Night is coming.
 

Turbulence Ahead

Ding. You hear the sound and look up to see the airplane’s warning light overhead to show you need to buckle your seat belt. The pilot announces that there is some turbulence ahead, and asks all passengers and flight attendants to take their seats and fasten their seat belts.

Unshakeable Pursuit: Don't be Shaken

Therefore – don’t be shaken!

 

My dear friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile.

(1 Cor. 15:58, CEV)

 

 

Unshakable Pursuit: Firm in Your Faith

Stand Firm and Don't Be Shaken

Have you ever had a time when one bad thing happened after another and another? When it seemed like there were difficulties all around you? You may have been in this situation in the past, or you may be there now. You may likely face this in the future.

Unshakable Pursuit: Stand Firm

Feet in the sand

I stood in the sand at the edge of the water on the beach when a wave of water came up around my feet.

Pursuing God through Prayer

The baby was born in late spring. Every day when his mother came home from work, she would put him in his stroller and take him for a walk. They loved to walk around the pond and look for ducks. She would say, “God made the ducks. Thank You, God, for ducks.”

Teaching the Talkative, Praying for Patience

In my Mission Friends, we have a 4-year-old little boy who never stops talking. I mean nev-er. He bursts in the room telling us excitedly about the airplane he’s made with his paper from preschool choir. Even while he’s doing everyday things like washing his hands, his head is turned to tell you something. I’m telling the mission story, and he’s talking away.

An Unshakable Pursuit to Make Disciples Who Make Disciples

Multiply

“My friends, stand firm and don’t be shaken. Always keep busy working for the Lord. You know that everything you do for him is worthwhile” (1 Cor. 15:58, CEV1).

Do you know your multiplication tables? We had to memorize those lists when I was in grade school (which is NOT as long ago as you think!!!). You started with the zeroes (0 x 1, 0 x 2, 0 x 3 . . . ) which was supremely easy since the answer was zero! We had to memorize all the numbers between one and twelve, multiplied by 0–12. When you reached the end to learn that 12 x 12 is 144.

Deep and Wide

deep, wide fountain

As a preschooler, I remember singing a song called “Deep and Wide.” It was a fun song to sing, but I didn’t really understand that the song was referring to God’s love (Eph. 3:18). I did understand that the Sunday School teachers who taught it to me loved and cared for me.
