The world is scrambling to find solutions to overwhelming problems. Scientists around the world research cures for disease. Government regulations attempt to bring order and prosperity to society. Yet no matter the gains we make, mankind never achieves the peace were searching for.
As a family, we can worship the One who promises to make all things new. Hearts and minds are transformed by his power, truth, and love.
Instead of depending on imperfect people, we put our trust in Jesusour Creator, Savior, and King. As you worship him as a family through singing, reading the Word, and your church, hope is restored.
Peace is found. Faith is grown. Love takes hold, and fear is gone!
Today, you face threats to your peace and security. You carry your childrens burdens of worry and disappointment. Your problems are real, and you cant see a way to solve them. Each concern chips away at the stability of your home.
Yet we serve a God who is eager to hear your prayers. His heart overflows with compassion, empathy, and love for your family.
Take him at his word, inviting you to bring your struggles to him: Let us then approach Gods throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:16) Reach out to God in prayer to find refuge in the shelter of [his] wings. (Psalm 61:4)
