We are not able to be with our grandchildren at all times, but God is. As our grandchildren head back to school; they are able to know for sure, God is with them. In the times when things are going well and they are happy; our grandchildren are able to know for sure, God is with them. In the times when they feel alone, or sad, confused or even angry; our grandchildren are able to know for sure God is with them.
We want our grandchildren to know God has promised to never leave them; which means He is always with them, but we also want them to know they are able to experience this closeness with God especially when they pray. So, while we certainly pray faithfully for them, we want them learn to be people who pray as well. Consider making this your prayer for your grandchildren today . . .
Thank You God for coming near to me when I pray to You. As my grandchildren go through this day, please help them experience this closeness as they take time to talk with You. I pray they will be quick to turn to talk with You in those moments today when they experience joy; and when they may feel stress or confusion as well. Today, and every day, may they feel You near when they pray. Amen.#grandmas #handingdownthefaith #itmatterswhatwedo #grandparentingonpurpose
