Jesus is the Friend who is always with you.  Jesus Today: Devotions for Kids will pour this powerful truth into your children's hearts as they learn that He knows everything about them and loves them more than they can imagine.  Each devotion is based on Scripture and is written as though Jesus is speaking directly to you, assuring that He is in control, that He is good, and that an amazing future awaits all who put their hope in Him.  Adapted from the ECPA 2013 Christian Book of the Year-winner Jesus Today, this devotional has the same themes as the adult version, as well as written-out scriptures.  It is a great choice for families to read and discuss during devotional time together.

I like how these devotionals for kids, talk to the kids. It is pretty much God talking to kids through His word. Very simple devotionals for small children that show them that God is always there for them, throughout their entire lives. I can see how the book has the same theme as the adult version because the simple devotionals help anybody that reads them. A fantastic idea to get your children into the Word.

Yearning for Sunshine

I woke up this morning
To a sad and cloudy day
The wind was roaring
I fell on my knees to pray

My heart was pounding
Sweat was running down my face
my thoughts wandered
to a dark and lonely place

I jumped up
I paced around the room
The storm was pounding
thunder hit with a great boom

The rain made puddles
Pouring down my cheeks
The clouds grew angry
With another lightning streak

I prayed to God
To take this storm away
I couldn't take
another lonely day

.....I woke up this morning
The clouds had disappeared
A glimmer of hope
Is replacing all my fears

They Are Not Aliens, They Are My Kids

Kyle Ready To Fish

I long for you Lord

Lord, I need your guidance
Fill me with your Spirit
Guide me through this dark Forest
Help me through the Thickets

I yearn for your meadow
I wait for the sun to rise
I long for that day when
You will wipe the teardrops from my eyes

Give me your power Lord
Take these fears away
Anxiety weakens me
Bringing sadness to my days

I long for those streets
Made of pure gold
I long for that day
When my heart won't feel this old

help me Lord
Direct me in your way
Lead me down that road
I fall on my knees to pray

I long for the streams
Made to softly flow
I long for that peace
That only you can help me know
