As we grow older, we can see many times along life’s path when we stumbled and if we were not close to God, we did fall… and sometimes we fell hard. Once we had turned our lives over to Him, we may still stumble yet He is with us and He will keep us from falling. King David would often use the illustration of being in the hands of God to show the great love and protection that we receive. I am sure that David thought about how he would protect the lambs from wild animals when he was a shepherd boy. He knew even more about how God had kept him safe through many battles and perils. He does that for us, too! Make sure that you are always in the hands of God as you walk with Him daily.

Ask if they recall holding hands of siblings or young classmates when in a crowd so that they didn’t get lost. There is truth to that even today.

Please pray for all of the Christian preschools and day schools around the country. Many churches have a real passion for providing Christian education to their congregations and to the community. It is a great set of courses and curriculum AND it is taught with regular Biblical references and perspectives. Our youth need that. Our world needs that! Support your local Christian schools and those who teach in them. Let them know that you pray for them. Be that blessing to them as they are blessing so many families each year. Pass it on with His love and with His protection.
