This past week our children learned about Joseph…

Tuesday, September 17 2019 by Janean Briseno

Have you ever had a day where nothing seemed to go right? We all have days like that. Days where nothing seems to go the way we thought it would go. This past week our children learned about Joseph.  Joseph was betrayed by his brothers, thrown into a dark well, and sold as a slave to Egypt. He must have felt all alone. But the Bible tells us God was with him. God was with Joseph when he was at home. He was with Joseph when he was in the well. And God was with Joseph in Egypt. God was there during Joseph’s terrible days AND his not-so-terrible days. He was with Joseph even when he felt all alone.    

Here is some really good news for you and me. Nothing in our crazy, no sense kind of a day is a surprise to God. He is in control of it all and He has a plan even in the hard stuff. As a reminder that the children are never alone they made their own sock puppet.  This craft project was a huge hit for our Kinder- 2nd graders. So the next time something happens that takes you by surprise and you’re wondering why, ask God to help you trust in Him. Remember, when life doesn’t make sense, you can trust God is with you.
