Message to Parents
Our kids need our reassurance daily, especially our girls! Having two teenage daughters myself we’ve seen the stage where our girls were in the ‘sponge stage’, where they would soak in almost everything you gave them. My wife would say to them every morning before school, “Don’t forget, you’re a daughter of a King, and daughter’s of King can do anything!”
Now that our girls are older and soak in SOME of the things we give them, my wife can still say, “Who are you?” and they will reply “Daughter of a King!” knowing they can have the confidence of our Savior to do anything! We all have the opportunity to influence our kids, take advantage of it now while you can. Here’s an article that might help: 10 Things Girls Need To Hear From Their Mom
Now with your kids
Grab your Bible and Sit down in your favorite spot in your house. Maybe it’s “your” chair or the corner of the couch.
Read 1 Peter 5:7
Get a blank sheet of paper and write down or draw a picture of something that has been worrying you.
Then, turn the sheet of paper over and write out the words found in 1 Peter 5:7. Hang the sheet of paper somewhere with the verse facing out so you can read it.
Knowing Jesus means you can trust Him with your problems. Instead of growing anxious, losing sleep, or getting upset, you can share your problems with Him and rest, knowing that He cares about you. When you’re tempted to turn back over to worry, read the words of 1 Peter 5:7 out loud and remember that you can turn your worries over to Him and trust Him with your problems.
Thank God for caring about you and your problems.

Trouble in Mind
God’s grace has saved you because of your faith in Christ. Your salvation doesn’t come from anything you do. It is God’s gift. Ephesians 2:8, NIrV
Knowing Jesus changes the way you see your problems.
Faith—Trusting in what you can’t see because of what you can see
I can trust God no matter what.
In Acts 27:1–28:10 we find a moment towards the end of Paul’s life. He was on his way to Rome to stand trial, but he and the entire crew were shipwrecked on the journey. This was a major setback, but Paul knew he could trust God. God used Paul in this moment to bring others to Him.
Bottom Line: Knowing Jesus changes the way you see your problems. Life will not always be easy. Thankfully, when we have a relationship with Jesus, we don’t have to go through them on our own. Jesus can change the way we see our problems. He can turn them into situations where we find God’s peace that passes all understanding.
