During this series, we’ll help our kids talk about their fears by studying Psalm 55:22. It’s safe for kids to discuss their fears, even if they think they’re silly. Some of them may still worry about monsters under their beds. Some might still be afraid of thunder. Some are worried about their family’s finances. No matter what they’re afraid of — we want them to remember that God wants them to give their cares and worries to Him.
This week, we tuned into the Loop Show and took a look at Psalm 55:22 and Matthew 26:25-27 to learn from one of Jesus’ teachings about why we shouldn’t worry
When we choose to follow God, that doesn’t mean we won’t worry anymore and everything will feel peaceful and easy. When those fears and worries come, we can give them to God and He will strengthen us. That’s how God sustains us — He gives us the courage and peace we need to face our fears in the exact moment we need them.
This week, read Psalm 55:22 and Matthew 26:25-27 with your child. Then, pray together. Pray your child will see God’s consistency throughout their life and trust Him with their worries and fears.
