God gives me what I need!
This week’s story is a fascinating account in history where God provides so specifically for the Israelites. As the Israelites traveled through the desert, they didn’t have to worry about where their food would come from. He dropped it from heaven every morning!
This is a great example to point to. God gave the Israelites everything they needed. They knew that God was always with them. God will give us everything we need, too, so we can know that God is always with us.
Create a Rhythm this week and use your ‘tuck in’ time to take a quick inventory of the day. Talk about the many ways God provided for your preschooler. Give them eyes to recognize God’s work in their life.
This week we’re discovering Matthew 6:25-30. Jesus really sets the scene here – using everdday examples of things like birds and flowers to point out how much more God cares aabout people. So why do we doubt and stress out about the future?
It’s not a bad thing to think about or plan for the future. But worrying about all the “what ifs” and wondering anxiously about things will turn out shows that we don’t really trust God to take care of us. We seem to want stuff to make us feel important, powerful and secure. But God says, “You have me!” So our Bottom Line is:
When you trust God, you don’t have to worry about tomorrow.
Contentment has a lot to do with our perception. Some of us are more prone to look backward at the past, while others are always wishing for what’s to come. But God invites uus to be present and enjoy right now. When we do this, we can truthfully say the end of our monthly Memory Verse: “I have learned the secret of being content no matter what happens.” Philippians 4:12a

This weekend we continue the series School Days as we touch on the topic of Popularity. If we’re honest, we all want to be popular. We watn others our age to like and accept us. We watn their approval. It makes us feel good when others think we are cool.
Your child deals with the same thoughts.
We dive into Daniel 3 for a birdseye view of Daniel and the decisions he made that made him very unpopular.
Are our tweeners ready to make decisions that don’t “go with the flow”?
This week Fight for the Heart by leveraging your Drive Time to discuss a few questions:
- Do you think it’s easier to make the popular choice or the right choice?
- What bad can come out of making the right but unpopular choice?
