Becoming a mother has been the single handed most impactful event in my life. My children have been an answered prayer to my hearts calling to teach others. Raising a family with purpose and promise is not only character building, it is rewarding. I often use creative ways to speak life into their little hearts. Join with me as I share some fun ideas with you.
There are so many messages our families and children our told by society. It is up to us to provide the foundation to who our children grow to be, what they value, and what they can trust in. I am in the process of discovering creative ways to do this. One creative tool I shared with you was a fun Character Building Bucket List with DIY. Today I want to share scriptures that can help speak encouragement and promise in your family members lives…especially your children.
Inspiring Scriptural Promises
- Psalm 103:17 – “But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children.”
- Matthew 21:22 – “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
- Psalm 127:3 – “Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a real blessing.”
- Proverbs 1:31 – “But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.”
- Psalm 127:3-5 – “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.”
- Proverbs 22:6 – “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
- Prov. 12:7 – “The house of the righteous shall stand.”
- Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
- Psalm 37:4 – “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
- Ephesians 2:10 – “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Each week I have the kids pick one leaf and reflect on their promise through the week. I encourage them to ponder their promise at varied times through the week to open up dialogue on how they can apply to their daily life. The kids have fun picking their leaves and having me read their promises. It has created a conversation starter into the viewpoints of their little, very important lives.
I truly hope you and your family find joy in this inspiration today! XO
