Encourage One Another-Little Blessings


“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14 (Jesus)
 One of my favorite times is the mornings I get to have breakfast with my little grandson. He is at the age where it is difficult to get him to sit still for any length of time but, I have found  a way to accomplish this by reading to him while he has his breakfast. The book we chose this morning is shown in the picture above.

As I began to go through the pictures and verses he was very still and quiet.  We started with this one

“Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my way” Psalm 119:115

“Love your neighbor as you love yourself” Leviticus 19:18

“Love is patient and kind” 1 Corinthians 13:4

“If someone does you wrong, do not pay him back by doing wrong to him” Romans 12:17

“Do for other people what you want them to do for you” Luke 6:31

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and strength”  Deuteronomy 6:5

“I love the Lord because He listens to my prayers for help. He paid attention to me” Psalm 116:1-2

“Yes I am sure that nothing can separate us from the love God has for us” Romans 8:38

“Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love continues forever” Psalm 136:26

“Depend on the Lord. Trust him, and He will take care of you” Psalm 37:5

“Do not forget to do good to others. And share what you have with them” Hebrews 13:16

I did not get very far with the reading  until the tears began to come. I realized this was a special moment and that as I read to him seeds were being sown into his little heart. I experienced one of those times where God’s presence was very real…

Eventually he began to get restless as little ones do and story time was over along with breakfast. But I will always remember that little space in time, which came quite unexpectedly in the middle of a busy morning.

We never know where God will show up. Maybe for breakfast.
