We also read Luke 5, which is part of our regular New Testament reading, and discussed how the people acknowledged God's power (or didn't) in that chapter.
The kids also worked on envelopes in which to place their worries and requests to the Lord (I had hoped for boxes, but we could only manage envelopes, and that is fine). On the front, they wrote the verse, "Be still and know that I am God."
As they worked, they began to hum, which was kind of neat. I heard "Be Still My Soul" and "Wonderful Jesus, Glorious Friend". I hadn't even thought of those two songs as good ones for our focus this week.
Wonderful Jesus! Glorious friend!
He will be with me unto the end,
Cheering, upholding, keeping me strong,
Fearless and loyal, shielding from wrong.
Wonderful Jesus! Showing the way
Into the blessed kingdom of day,
Guiding my footsteps, holding control,
Making me happy, making me whole.
Wonderful Jesus! All through the night
He will enfold me, giving me light;
Then, when the morning breaks on the shore,
This He will whisper, "Mine evermore."
Wonderful Jesus! Marvelous king!
Ever his praise my spirit will sing,
When I behold His glorified face,
How I shall praise His wonderful grace!
--James Rowe, 1865-1933
