Feeling Worried? A Kid's Devotional

"Coping with Coronavirus: A Kid’s Devotional for Finding God’s Peace in a Pandemic” by Chelsea Dorough & Jeanine Weise.

The Coronavirus has caused a lot of things to change and change can cause us to worry.  You might be worried about when you'll be able to see your friends again or about your family getting sick.  Maybe you're even worried about having enough toilet paper!  God tells us that He will give us peace to calm our worries, all we have to do is ask!

Philippians 4:6-7 NLT says "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.  Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.  Then you will experience God's peace, which...will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."

John 14:27 NLT "I am leaving you with a gift- peace of mind and heart.  And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.  So don't be trouble or afraid."

Hug someone you love and say this prayer together: "God, your word says to tell you what I need, and right now I need___.  Thank you for all that you've already done for me.  I accept your gift of peace.  I know that the peace you give protects my heart and mind so that I don't have to feel troubled or afraid.

TIP: Make a "God box" by decorating and old tissue box.  Write down your worries and give them to God by putting them in a box!
