Trusting the Lord (Feb 12th-18th)

Sometimes, even if we are living by faith, things might not turn out the way we thought they would. In these moments, we might feel confused or alone.


But even in moments like this, the Lord invites us to remain steady and trust Him and to continue walking in faith. We can't see the end from the beginning, but He does! 


Will we trust Him?


We’ve prepared a fun and engaging way for you to teach this concept to your little children! They’re going to love this week’s video!

🎶 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!)


4) What would have happened if you panicked and went too fast and tried to rush? (Discuss.)

Explain: When something goes wrong, or we feel worried, or upset, Heavenly Father has told us what to do. He said: “be still, and know that I am God.” God is in control, and He loves us very much! He will take care of us if we will trust Him!


If we let our hearts get too worried, or if we rush or panic too much, then our faith can spill out of our hearts.


But, if we learn to keep our hearts calm, and steady, and still, (just like the cup of water) we can keep following Jesus Christ and our hearts can stay filled with faith!


 

🎥 V I D E O : "Mother Knows What to Do | A Story About Trusting God"


Now we are going to watch a video about learning to trust God instead of being fearful! Watch and see what these children were worried about and who was taking care of them.



1) What are some things that the children were worried about? (The broken spoon, the lights, the

lightning, and the empty cereal box.)


2) Who was taking care of them? (Their mother.)


3) Did the children need to be worried? (No, because Mother was watching over them.)


4) What did the children learn to do at the end? (They learned to trust their mother!)


5) Why are we like the children? (Because we are also learning to trust Heavenly Father to take

care of us.)


 

➤ S C R I P T U R E


Read the following scriptures and discuss the questions that follow.



O Lord, I have trusted in thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh; for

I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in the arm of flesh. Yea, cursed is he that putteth his trust in

man or maketh flesh his arm.


1) Is there anything that God doesn’t know? (No, He knows everything!)


2) Is there anything God doesn’t have the power to do? (No, He has all power.)


3) Goes God care about us? (Yes! He loves us very much!)


4) So....is God a safe person to trust? (Yes, we can trust Him. He will not break His promises and

He will not let us down.)



And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.


1) What is happening in this verse? (Jesus and His disciples were on a ship, and there was a great

storm!)


2) Who was asleep? (Jesus was asleep.)


3) What did the disciples do? (They were worried, and they woke Jesus to ask Him to help.)



And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.


1) What question did Jesus ask his disciples? (He asked them why they were fearful.)


2) Does your heart ever feel like a storm? (Discuss.)


3) What can we do if we are feeling worried about something? (We can think about Heavenly

Father's love for us, and we can try to trust Him.)

[Pass out the activity pages]


Invite the children to color the characters from the video. Fold along the dotted lines to make the mouths open and close! Have a discussion together about some things that you might feel worried about right now. (Use the characters to express your worries!)


Use this time to talk about Heavenly Father’s love for us and His promises to us in the scriptures. Talk about what we can do to trust Him more and to help our hearts be still and filled with faith.
