For Christmas, we gave each of the children a new journal. Each morning, usually before they wake up, I write a scripture reference in the journal and I date it. When they awake, they are excited to look up the scripture and write it in their journal. We then talk about who they truly are in Christ by what His Word says. I pray this journal of their truthful, secure identity becomes a treasure to them as they grow up. I pray His Word grounds them securely.
“He shielded him and cared for him; He guarded him as the apple of His eye…”
We are forgiven!
We pray our children will moment-by-moment hold firmly to the Word of life and thereby shine like stars in the sky for Him and boast on the day of Christ that, indeed, they did not run or labor in vain! Only by His grace and strength.
