July 19 // God is with us in hard times.

Read Job 1:13-19 out loud with your family.


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


Q: Think back to the last bad day you had. Was it as bad as what Job experienced? 


Parent Note: Hopefully, none of us has ever experienced a day anywhere nearly as bad as Job's. Many stories in the Bible can offer us perspective, meaning, by comparison, things we face on a day-to-day basis really aren't that bad. 



Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:

Dear Lord, thank You for all that You’ve done for me.
Even when things are difficult, I know that you’re with me.
Help me to be focused on the blessings You’ve given me.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
