You Are Able to Make a Difference

My grandsons are praying through the Psalms for one year using the book they helped me create - Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Children. Yesterday we were talking about the passage for this week - Psalm 27:7-14 - and how they are able to ask God to hear their prayers. My six-year old grandsons said; "I don't have to ask God to hear my prayers, because He has already promised to hear me when I pray." Then his brothers all agreed! My heart was so happy! We talked more about how David, who wrote most of Psalms, often asked God to hear his prayers and we may do the same, or instead, we could thank God for hearing our prayers - which is what my grandsons decided they will do this week. My heart is so very happy!

I love how my grandsons are learning to talk with God. I love how we are able to have some amazing conversations together. I love how they are growing in their understanding and trust in God. Did I mention how extremely happy my heart is!

I feel like my husband and I are making a difference in the lives of our grandchildren - you are able to do the same with your grandchildren. It is not hard. It is not complicated. While we are able to have our grandchildren to our home every week, you do not have to live near your grandchildren to make a difference. You are able to make a difference. This is the truth. You just have to do the following . . . 
  • First of all believe you are able to make a difference.
  • Look for tools to help you engage your grandchildren.
  • Commit to make a difference.
  • Do not give up.
  • Trust God to lead, guide, direct and give you the strength you need to make a difference.
As Lillian said; "God chose us for our specific children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He has chosen you for your family." Believe this and make a difference.
