He Sings Over Me

VERSE

(Zephaniah 3:17)The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.

Have you ever woken up to a song in your head!? Or even just out of nowhere in your day ,and maybe you can’t help but keep singing the same line. Sometimes these songs that we have in our head are just random songs that annoy us, but I believe that sometimes God will talk to us through song as well. This week I had  the song Holy Spirit in my head since church on Sunday, specifically the same line “let us become more aware of your presence.” Of course I have just been singing that one line over and over and then finally listened to the song again, and as I listened I realized God was singing that over me and reminding me to “ to look for his presence” in every aspect of my life. By singing that line over and over again, I was speaking that truth into my life and current season. Listen closely that song you keep singing might just be the exact truth you need to hear, and let it sink into your soul !

DISCUSSION(TODDLERS/PRESCHOOLERS)

  1. What is your Favorite Song?

  2. Did you know God can speak to you through songs?

DISCUSSION ( SCHOOL AGE)

PRAYER

Dear father thank you for music , and what a creative God  you are that you would use music to sing over us, and remind us of your love, and truth to speak it into our lives so that we may grow more into who you created us to be in Jesus Name, Amen


ACTIVITY TIME

Take some time this week as a family to write out the lines of the songs or the parts of  songs that stands out to each of you and draw what God is speaking over you around those words! Or maybe God is even stirring up a new song in you or your kids. I  encourage you to write that out or draw it out!

The Heart of the Matter

VERSE

(1 SAMUEL 16:7) God looks at our hearts. “God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”


Have you ever felt like you needed to impress God? I know I am guilty of this from time to time! I think we all are whether it be trying  to be “perfect”, or filling our lives with good deeds and busyness,that there is no room for healing. In principle it is not bad, to want to be a better person or do good things, but if we are doing these things because we want “to get right” with God and cover the areas of our hearts  that need his loving touch, then that is where the problem lies. God is more concerned with the state of our heart, the heart of the matter, he wants our whole heart, because he  gave us his whole heart through Jesus!



DISCUSSION(TODDLERS/PRESCHOOLERS)

  1. Where is your heart?

  2. what would you like God to see in your heart?


DISCUSSION ( SCHOOL AGE)

  1. what would someone not know about you just by looking at you?

  2. what does it mean to look at someone's heart?



PRAYER

Dear Father, help us to  give our whole heart to you, and not hide behind “good deeds”, and busyness,so that you may heal the areas that need your love, and  extra care. Which will allow us to abandon the need for perfection, and to simply live and love abundantly as freely as Jesus loves us  In Jesus name Amen

Children of God

VERSE

(1 John 3:1) See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Have you ever watched a movie where the main character is a princess or prince ? As a child I would fantasize about what it would be like to be just like the royalty in those movies, and how fun it would be. Today though I have learned about a beautiful truth; that I am actually already royalty, and so are each of you. We are God's royalty, he calls you by name and places a crown of identity on you as son or daughter of the King of Kings.

What a revelation it is too know that the God that created the heavens and the earth, chose you as his own. You are truly special, royal and favored by the king.In God's eyes, no matter how old or who you are he loves you prince, and princess.

DISCUSSION (TODDLERS/PRESCHOOLERS)

  1. Who is your favorite Disney princess/prince ?

  2. Did you know you are just like that princess/ prince to God?

DISCUSSION (SCHOOL AGE)

  1. You could  be a Prince/ Princess for a day what would you do?

  2. Since you are Gods Prince/Princess what do you think God wants you to do?

PRAYER

Dear Father,  thank you for choosing me and calling me by name as your own prince or princess, help me to always remember to walk in that identity and share with those around me that they too are a son or daughter of an amazing King who favors and loves them In Jesus name Amen
