You will always keep on being God

"God, you made the earth a very long time ago. You made the heavens too. All of that will go away. But you will not go away. You will always keep on being God. Our clothes get old. They are not good anymore. Then we get new clothes. They will get old too. You are not like that. You are always the same. You will never stop being God"
(Psalm 102:25-27, The B-I-B-L-E).

Be close to God

"Epaphras told us about you. We started praying for you right away. And we keep on praying for you. God has a good plan for your life. We are asking God to help you know his plan. We want you to be close to God. Then you will know what he wants you to do. We are asking God to help you think right. Then you will always do what is right. Then you will make God happy. Then you will do good things. Then you will be kind to others. Then you will keep on knowing God better and better" (Colossians 1:9-10, The B-I-B-L-E).

Tell God how great he is!

"Hey, everyone! Tell God how great he is. Sing praise songs to him. Tell everyone that he is awesome. Tell God, 'Wow! You do amazing things! You are super strong. Bad people are scared of you. Everyone will tell how great you are. Everyone will praise you. Everyone will sing songs about you' "
(Psalm 66:1-4, The B-I-B-L-E).

God is our place of safety

"God, please listen to me. Please hear my prayers. Wherever I am, I will ask you for help. I feel like I cannot keep on going. Please show me a safe place. Take me to the big rock. That is a safe place. You always take care of me. You are the safe place where I can hide. You are like a strong fort. The bad people cannot get me there. I want to always be close to you. Then I will be safe. I will be right by you" (Psalm 61:1-4, The B-I-B-L-E).

Add a comment

I am currently doing a maternity leave substitute teaching job in second grade. I have asked friends around the world to send me a note giving greetings to my class. We will plot the senders' locations on a world map. It would be great if you would like to take part in that. Just add a comment to my blog, and I'll share it with my class. Be sure to tell where you live in the world. Thank you!

God is like a strong fort where we can hide

"Take a look at good people. Look at people who tell the truth. Look at people who do good things. God has a good plan for them. He will take care of them. If they love peace, they will have a good life. But God will get rid of the bad people. They will not have a good life. God takes care of the people who obey him. When they are in trouble, he helps them. He is like a strong fort where they can hide" (Psalm 37:37-39).
