Painful Ice!

I love Ellie’s excitement for learning. She is always asking questions to learn more. She is always making observations. She is always asking to learn new words. Yesterday she came home from church and told us…
“Jesus helps us with our sins!”
So thankful for the amazing volunteers we have who pour into our kids each week.
In Kids Life yesterday, Bruce talked to the kids about forgiveness. Forgiveness requires a heart change. You cannot continue in your sin yet expect Jesus to forgive you. Each child was handed an ice cube with a button inside. They were asked to hold the ice cube in their hands until it melts. It was not easy. It was painfully cold and difficult to continue holding in their hands. Many of them dropped it or put it down and began smashing it with their water bottle so they wouldn’t have to feel the pain of holding it. When we begin to have our hearts changed by Jesus it does not always feel great. It is often a painful experience. However, if you hold on long enough you reach freedom. There is freedom in Jesus if you just continue to hold on and not let go.

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
