Last week our family experienced quite a scare. Michael, our 12 year old, had an episode of vision loss. Upon visiting the eye doctor, his testing revealed a serious peripheral vision loss and we were sent directly to the emergency room. While the doctors fully anticipated an abnormal MRI scan, many people began to pray for Michael and his MRI scan returned completely normal. Though his vision has not returned to 100% normal, we are thankful for this good report and are praying that he continues to improve.
There are times when the world is a scary place. In fact, in my adult life, I honestly can’t remember when the world was ever a scarier place to live than it is right now. It seems I am acutely aware of the wickedness in the world in this season of my life. I read Proverbs 31:25 this morning:
…she laughs at the time to come.
The famous virtuous woman of Proverbs 31 did not fear the future; she trusted in the Almighty because she knew his track record to be 100% trustworthy.
I don’t know about you, but when the world is a scary place, I find myself whispering to the Lord that I need him more than ever, that we need him more than ever. I also find myself reassuring my children that God is good. All the time. All the time. God is good.
When I was introduced to this beautiful children’s book, God Is Always Good, I fell in love with it right away. This book is designed to provide comfort for kids facing grief, worry or scary times. With strong memorable statements, this book is a wonderful reinforcement for teaching children that God is good. Here are some of favorite examples of those statements:
- God has good plans for you!
- God is bigger than any badness.
- God always keeps watch over you.
- God is with us when we are hurting.
- God keeps every promise he makes.
The above are just a few of the wonderful points in this sweet book designed for ages 4-8. I thought you would enjoy a preview:
