A rejoicing message for the kids
Psalm 118:24 – Today is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Today is Sunday. Today I am going to church. Today I am glad!!!! I’m glad because I will get to praise God in my church building…something I haven’t been able to do in a long time…10 weeks!! Now, I will admit…I have not really hated being able to sleep in on some of those Sundays that I couldn’t go to church. And watching sermons where I could pause the video in order to get a snack or maybe, you know, go to the bathroom hasn’t been all bad either. But being able to join others in fellowship is something I look forward to. And I’ve kind of missed some certain someones…Niah, Braydon, Brantley, Eliza, Hannah, Miranda, Jackson, and Claire…to name a few. I’m going to have to add Kassey too (that’s right, you’re not too old!). And even though these special someones might not be going to church yet, I’m still glad that I can go; and I hope to see all of them soon. I pray for continued good health and safety for everyone.
So, this is probably the last Facebook “message for the kids” until the next pandemic. I hope each kid, no matter the age, has received a blessing in these messages. God is Good; and that is worth sharing, and it is something to rejoice and be glad in!!
Philippians 4:4 – Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Thank you, God!
