Hand your child the stone.
Hold the stone in your hand. Notice how solid it is.
There will be times in our lives when we are scared, or sad, or nervous. That’s okay. God put all those feelings in us, and we get to feel them all.
And it’s important to remember, that no matter what we’re going through, God’s love is solid.
God is with us every step of the way.
Listen to this passage from Psalm 18, verses 1-2 –
I love you, O Lord, my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer,
my God, my rock in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Now let’s sit in silence. Hold the stone and feel how solid God’s love is.
[After a few moments of silence, pray]
Your love is solid.
We know that you are constant.
You will never leave us.
[The stone can now go in the box.]
