"For I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you a hope and a future."
The year is quickly coming to a close. This is a great time to talk to your kids and teens about their future. Yes, even kids, need to talk about their future. Whether it's the immediate future, this upcoming year, or far in the future, they need to know and understand that God has plans for them. Plans that are good. Plans that will prosper them and never harm them.
Every choice they make today, will affect their future. One choice they can make that will have a positive affect on the present and on their future, is to spend time with God each and every day. No matter how tired they are. No matter what their friends are doing. No matter what's on tv or what video game is out. Spending time with God is a wise decision that they will never regret.
Sit down with your kids and discuss these things. Make an action plan on how they can have a quiet time. Help them prepare. Let's help our children and teens start the year off the right way.
Today I want to share two great books with you; The Plans I Have For Your Devotional and The Plans I Have For Your Journal. The Plans I Have For Your Devotional is a 90 day devotional divided into 6 sections: I've got big plans for you, I've given you a purpose, I don't do things small, There's nothing you can't do, Find that one thing, and What I created you to do. It is full of wisdom your child will glean and beautiful illustration that will capture their eyes. This devo is geared towards ages 8-12. The Plans I Have For Your Journal goes with the devo and will prompt creative thinking and exploration of the talents and personalities that make us special. It also helps your child explore how God may use our uniqueness to spread love and joy and make the world a better place.
