A few days ago, my three-year-old daughter came up to me while I was doing some work. She snuggled in next to me and out of the blue said, "Be kind. Be helpful. Be strong. God is with you in your heart...and be funny."
"Out of the mouths of babes." "Faith like a child." I think both of those sayings apply here. Her words seemed quite timely, and I wrote them down immediately. "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." -Matthew 28:20b
What comfort there is in knowing that God will be with us always--He's promised us that. And He keeps His promises.
"Be kind. Be helpful. Be strong." I need to work on all three, and I need Jesus to help me. Lord, I Need You by Matt Maher is a song that runs through my mind almost every day. Lord, I need You, oh, I need You Every hour I need You My one defense, my righteousness Oh God, how I need You We need God every hour of every day, and He's there for us. He longs to listen to us, to be our Defender.
"God is with you in your heart." Words to remember -- especially today -- and always. He is always with us in our hearts. And...I definitely need to work on the "be funny" part. -Anna Preus, School Ministries Staff Assistant
