March 5Hide and Seek“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened unto you.” (Matthew 7:7)When you play hide and seek, do you want to be the hider or the seeker? Seems like it’s natural for most people to want to hide. What do you hide from? Challenges, mistakes, dreams that don’t seem possible? Sometimes we stuff ideas or situations back in our minds so we don’t have to think about them. God sees what we are hiding and wants to help us through all circumstances both good and bad. So what about seeking? In looking for an elephant, one wouldn’t look under a bed. Know what you are seeking. Is it forgiveness, love, acceptance? Where are you looking for in life? The Bible says to ask, seek, and knock. What we are given won’t always look like we imagined it would be, but God will answer our prayers. Choose to be the seeker; look for Jesus. He is not even hiding. He wants you to find him!Dear Jesus, help me remember to seek for you every day and ask you for help when I need it. Amen. ... See MoreSee Less

March 4Trouble“So, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble is enough for today.” (Matthew 36:4)What will happen next? Will I get sick? Will school be in-person? When can I see my friends and family? When can I play sports or go to other activities? Jesus tells his friends and reminds us that we should focus on today. Try not to worry and trust God to help you figure it all out. When you play the game of Trouble, you don’t know what number is going to pop up for you on your next turn. If you get a 6, you could move that piece, but if you get a 2, you could jump your opponent. But the other players take their turn and you have to wait. By the time you push that Pop-o-matic, everything might have changed. That’s how it is with life. But thankfully, we have a God who is always with us, no matter what number or trouble pops up!Thank you, God, for being with us every day, helps us focus on today’s troubles. Amen. ...

March 3The Game of ClueRead Mark 10:46-52 to play Jesus ClueIn the Game of Clue there is an envelope with three cards in it. The object is to figure out who was killed by whom, in what room, and with what weapon. But what does this game have to do with Jesus? Well, Jesus had all the power but seemed to use it at specific times and for specific purposes. Let’s take a look at the Bible story mentioned above and use the clue questions to solve a mystery:One day, Jesus was walking with his disciples along a road and a guy started yelling his name. The disciples basically told the guy to knock it off. Instead, he ran to Jesus. Jesus used a miracle to show his disciples (and us) about the power of faith – and that everyone is a recipient of God’s love and attention.What was the name of the man who received the miracle?What was the miracle?Where did this take place?Healing God, open our eyes to see the clues of your work in our daily lives. Amen. ... See MoreSee Less
