Be Still and Know That I Am God

When something goes wrong, especially when it's something beyond our control, it is normal to feel distress. We might worry. We might even panic. We might fight it and try to wrestle the situation into our control. But in moments like this, the Savior would have us remain steady. "Be still and know that I am God." We can't see the end from the beginning, but He does. Do we trust Him?

This week's lesson bundle invites your family to ponder over what it means to be still and trust in God.

➤ L E S S O N

Open the lesson with a song and a prayer.

🎶 O P E N I N G S O N G : "If I Listen With My Heart"

➤ P R E P A R A T I O N

You will need a small cup of water (filled almost to the brim) and an image of Jesus Christ. Draw a heart on the cup, or tape a drawing of a heart to the cup. Place the cup of water and the image of Jesus Christ on the floor on the opposite side of the room.

➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N

Explain that the cup represents our hearts, and the water represents our faith in Jesus Christ. Ask a volunteer to attempt to pick up the cup of water and bring it over to the image of Jesus Christ without spilling any of the water. Allow the other children to do this activity one at a time until everyone has had a turn.

After you complete the activity, ask the following questions:

1) When you did this challenge, were you moving fast? Or slow? (Discuss.)

2) Were you wiggling? Or were you still and steady? (Still!)

3) Why were you slow, steady and still instead of rushing and wiggling? (Because the water would have spilled!)
