Feeling Bored? A Kid's Devotional Part Four

Part four of the Devotional Series from “Coping with Coronavirus: A Kid’s Devotional for Finding God’s Peace in a Pandemic” by Chelsea Dorough & Jeanine Weise.

You've already played all your video games.  More than once. You read a whole book in 3 days! You know exactly how many squares are on the floor in the bathroom because you counted them.  A couple of months into staying home, you may notice yourself complaining about having nothing to do.  You've already done everything there is to do in your house! You are BORED. 

Boredom can cause us to stop appreciating the good things in our lives.  God can help us to be thankful no matter what!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ICB says " Always be happy.  Never stop praying. Give thanks whatever happens.  That is what God wants for you in Christ Jesus."

Hug someone you love and say this prayer together: "Lord, help me have a good attitude and a thankful heart.  Help me to remember all the things I am thankful for, even when I feel bored by them. Amen!"

Tip: Next time you pick up a toy or game, say "I'm thankful to have this" before you play!
