“God is with me” is a phrase we use often in the Kids Ministry. We desire each of our kids to know that God made them, he loves them, he saved them, and he will always be with them.
On a recent Sunday morning as the kids were coming into their classrooms, the Roots kids (2-4year old class) heard a little girl in the Nest (0-2 year old class) crying. “Who is crying?” a two year old asked. The classroom leader told the kids it was a baby next door. Another young one asked, “Why is she sad?” The classroom leader replied, “Maybe its because she doesn’t want to be away from her mommy and daddy even though they went downstairs for just a little bit. But do you know who is with her right now?” Most of the class piped in, “God is with her!” Then the class gathered in a circle and some of the kids prayed for the little one next door. “God, I pray for her not to be sad,” prayed one child; “God, would she not be afraid,” prayed another. The classroom leader closed the time of prayer and as they finished the little girl next door had stopped crying!
Our kids are living with confidence that God is with each of them forever and always. It’s a testimony that not only do they believe it for themselves, but also they are fighting for each other to have more faith and to be comforted by God’s presence.
God is doing so much in Mosaic Kids and I am so blessed to be part of seeing the next generation live out the simple truths of God’s kingdom. They are constantly encouraging me to believe the simple but profound reality that I am a child of the King. Reminding me that every moment of the day God is with me, forever and always.
Like our kids, we too can have childlike faith. Know, today, that God made you, he loves you, he saved you, and he will always be with you.
