Can I just share that I love it when I get to have one-on-one time with your kiddos on Sunday mornings?—even if it's because we are addressing a problem together!
Here is why…and it happens every time: God shows up.
Yesterday one of our younger students was having a hard time in Sunday School class so his teacher brought him to me. I start digging into the issue, and I pray. This little guy is young enough to be boldly honest about his feelings. He didn’t want to be at church because he wanted to stay home and play Xbox. Hence the resistance and challenging attitude to his teachers in class, which brought him to me.
But here is the beautiful part: We had an amazing conversation about God. This boy opened up and shared some stories of healing in his family and I got to help him see how that was God’s hand. God let me remind him that He is always with him. That we come to church to worship Him and give Him thanks for these very instances. That we are his church family and we are all here to support him and help teach him, including his wonderful Sunday School teachers. That it is okay to ask questions because we are seeking Him. That it is okay to talk about his conflicting desires on a Sunday morning because God is big enough.
He let me pray over him before returning to class. As I walked away I hoped that he felt God’s love in this place. I am thankful for his family who brings him here so he can continue to grow in his faith.
And I learned about myself too. I was reminded of how much I sometimes desire what the world has to offer instead of turning to Him first. Approval, fulfillment, affirmation.
"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." Deuteronomy 6:6-7
