Be Reminded Today - You are Loved & Empowered

When you think about handing down confident faith, you may feel like you are completely unable to do this. But, today I just want to encourage you with the truth we find in this quote from Beth Moore - no matter what obstacles we face, God loves us and He will give us the power and strength we need to do what He wants us to do - and we know He wants us to hand down confident faith to the children He has entrusted to us.

So, what does it look like to hand down confident faith? Do we have to be "super grandparents" to do this or have years of experience teaching others? No, we just have to be the people God made us to be, have a willing heart, and be committed to not give up. Consider the following ways you are able to hand down committed faith . . .
  • Share how God has answered your prayers throughout your lifetime.
  • Always be watching for how God works in your life and the lives of your family and be quick to draw attention to those times.
  • Look for opportunities to connect the things your family experiences to similar situations in the Bible and how we know God worked in then.
  • Plan intentional times when you are able to show the children you love why you know God is real and you are able to trust Him. We are working through our new books in the "Life on the 'Goldilocks Planet'" curriculum series (you will find it at this link.) When my grandsons are at my house for dinner, we read about one of the animals, talk about how it shows us God knew what He was doing when He designed and created it "just right", and how it helps us know we are able to trust Him to do the same for us.
These are just a few ideas for how you are able to hand down confident faith. Like Beth Moore said; no matter what kind of obstacles you face, you are loved and empowered by God and He will help you do the things He has called you to do - such as hand down confident faith to the children you love.
