This week's resources
Verse of the week
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.
Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Choose someone to read the Verse of the Week out loud.
How about having a little art session… could you draw what sometimes worries you? Then chat about it together as a family and see if you can think of some truths or promises from the Bible which could replace those worries - you might like to write or draw them on the same page.
How about creating a ‘Jar of Joy’?
Grab two jars. Here's a reminder of Nicola's 'Battle Box'!
Write or draw those verses that encourage you on small pieces of paper and fill up one of the jars with them!
Then, whenever anything is worrying you, write it on a piece of paper or draw your worry and put it in the other jar. It's like saying, ‘I'm putting this down for a bit’. As you do, pray and thank God for taking it from you. If there is anything you need, ask God for it.
Then take a verse from the jar to replace that thought. This is like saying ‘I chose to look to you, God’. And so you can practice renewing your mind! Thank God for His good promises to you.
Take some time to pray together as a family. Thank God for his invitation to cast our worries on him because he cares for us (1 Peter 5:7) and ask him to help us to fix our eyes on Jesus when worries come.
