I am reading the One Thousand Gifts Devotional by Ann Voskamp. I highly recommend it. On Day 36, she quoted C.S. Lewis as saying "The most fundamental thing is not how we think of God but rather what God thinks of us." This really impacted me and I searched God's Word to see what He thinks of His children. I collected several truths and I plan to post these by the boy's beds. My youngest boy is six years old so he is able to read simple things. If your children are younger, read these truths aloud over them. The purpose of repitition is for these truths to sink way down deep into their hearts. Pray and ask God to make their hearts tender to these truths and to Him.
These are the truths I have collected:
God cares about you deeply.
God is always close.
God cares about the details of your life.
God loves you all the time.
God loves you when you are good and when you mess up.
God watches over you as you come and go.
God has a special plan for your life.
God's plans for you are too numerous to list.
You can print out your own at this link for free!!
These are all based on scripture. I wanted to keep them simple and easy for the boys. Heck, I may even need to post these by my bed! : ) Hugs to all of you precious moms!!
