Kid Reflection/Follow Up Activity

What You Need: A notebook or paper/ pen or pencil

What You Do:
Draw a large question mark in the middle of your page.
Write or draw questions you might have about God or following Jesus.
If you feel like their questions are too “big” or personal, just draw simple question marks to represent those.
Write as many questions as you want to.
Remember: Keep going even when you have questions.
When you are finished, pray:

“Dear God, thank You for hearing our prayers and our questions, too. We know that there is no question or problem too big for You, God! Please help us to keep asking, keep praying, and keep going so we can follow You our whole lives. Amen.”


Everyone has questions about something big at some point in their lives. The important thing is to keep going even when you have questions. Remember to always pray and ask God for help when you need it!

Follow-up Discussion/Activity for Kids

Read 2 Chronicles 20:17

When you receive a new book, do you flip to the last page and read the ending first? Reading the ending would ruin the story! When it comes to following Jesus, knowing the end is a good thing.

Why?

Because God has already had a plan to make everything right. In the end, God wins!

That was true for God’s people in 2 Chronicles. God told them not to worry, that the battle had already been won. The next morning, God’s army took their battle positions but instead of charging toward the enemy, they begin to praise God. The opposing army became confused and turned on one another. God won the battle just as He said He would.

Sometimes we forget that we already know the end of the story. We don’t have to be afraid or lose hope. God is with us and there isn’t anything too big for Him. We can keep going, keep moving forward with determination because God knows the end of the story.

Ask God to help you remember that with Him on your side, you win! So you can keep going knowing He is with you.

Help us to decide it is worth it to finish what we start and give us the strength to keep going. Amen!”
