Enjoy a Safe, Healthy, June

When you are ‘really’ REALLY upset, frightened, confused, who or what reassures, calms, or comforts you? Some of us are calmed down when we listen to music; others when we hear a familiar, trusted, and kind voice. God’s voice can be trusted.

I will be with you; I will not leave you or forsake you.” Joshua 1:5

Drawing, painting, exercising and consuming protein bar are all great ways to “chill.” Some of us eat, eat, and eat more.

Would it help you breathe easier, IF there was someone with you Who understood all your details, feelings, and concerns (even though your words don’t say them all).

Perhaps it would help if you knew the person’s personal story of their own time of needing some comfort.

How about if this Someone knew everything about EVERYthing, EVERYone, EVERYwhere? That would certainly help us, right? JESUS is that SOMEONE!

Philippians 4:8 “Begin to think on the Word or begin to sing a praise song to God. Make a conscious effort to fill your mind with good, pure, wholesome, and lovely thoughts.”

Whatever… the situation is, Jesus is that SOMEONE! He is ready to listen, care, and be with us! YES, whatever, whenever, however!

He is not only with us; He promises to never ever leave us! He is willing to and capable of calming us. The dental office, school, games, traveling, difficult conversations, with family, friends, and new acquaintances are all places, situations, and times we can trust GOD to be right there with us. HE is with us and for us in ALL places, at ALL times always and forever.

Want to know more about JESUS? Check with your parents or guardians and ask if you can talk with them, other family members or friends, local church leaders, or VBS school/camp workers.

You can begin reading the Bible daily and ask GOD to help you understand more about JESUS and His Holy Spirit.
We would appreciate hearing how you are learning to calm yourself and find PEACE.
