May 16 // We can trust God with our emotions.

Read 1 Samuel 1:6-10 out loud with your child.

 

Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family. 

 

Q: Think about the last time that you were very upset or very angry. How did you behave?

 

Parent Note: Anger, rage, and jealousy are destructive emotions. They show a lack of faith that God loves us and is in control. We should not worry; instead, we should trust in God, giving ourselves to Him for His use and safe keeping.

 

Pray this out loud together:

 

Dear God, please help me to trust that You are in control

You’re a good God, and you care about how I feel

Thank you for loving me the way that you do

In Jesus’s name, amen
