This Week in Motion :: You can have peace because God has a plan.

December Series: With the busyness of the Christmas season, it’s easy to lose sight of why we celebrate in the first place. We forget that at the time of the first Christmas, God’s people were anticipating a Rescuer who would come and save the world. That’s why this December, we’re “decking the halls” to focus on nothing but Christmas. Because of Jesus, it’s possible for us to have a relationship with God that will last forever. This month, take time to remember the reason we celebrate in the first place: Jesus, the greatest gift the world has ever known.

You can have peace because God has a plan.
Our King of Peace (Gabriel Appears to Mary) • Luke 1:26-56

In Luke 1:26-56, the Messiah had been promised for generations, but no one would have guessed God would use a young woman to fulfill that promise — including that young woman herself. Mary was awestruck when the angel came to announce she was about to have a child who would be the Savior of the world. Mary found peace in trusting that through God, all things are possible.

Engage in everyday moments together this week: 

  • Morning Time: As your kid starts their day, pray with them to experience God’s peace no matter what happens. 
  • Meal Time: At a meal this week, have everyone at the table answer this question: “When have you been worried about something, but ended up feeling better once you knew what the plan was?” 
  • Drive Time: While on the go, ask your kid: “What are some things that make you feel calm?” 
  • Bed Time: Pray for each other: “God, thank You that You are always working, even if we’re not sure what is going on.”
