The Truth About You…My Lighthouse
“If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
When I was little I loved watching a movie called Pete’s Dragon. It was wonderful. But my favourite part was a scene in the end when a big storm comes and a ship is going to be dashed to pieces on the rocks at the shore. But the lighthouse keeper couldn’t get the lamp in the lighthouse lit! I found it so nerve wracking! Would they save the ship in time? The dragon in the story ended up saving the day, lighting the lamp so it could shine through the storm, and warn the sailors about the rocks ahead. It was so good.
Have you ever felt like you’re in the dark and you can’t see what is coming up ahead or know what is going to happen? I bet you have. Talk about a time when you’ve felt lost or uncertain.
With this new series in Kidventure we’re talking about Jesus as being our lighthouse. He will always shine a light for us to be able to see. (And unlike in the movie I loved as a little girl, the lamp in God’s lighthouse doesn’t go out!)
In Psalm 139 it says that God knows us better than anyone. He’s the one who made us when we were babies still inside our moms. Not only did he make us, but he made us wonderfully. What are some things that are wonderful about you? (There are lots!)
The Psalm also goes on to say that God will never leave us. Why do you think he’ll always be with us? (Because he made us and he loves us!)
You and I are so precious to God. We are made with love and care, and God cherishes us deeply. Whenever you start to feel anxious, or worried, or like you’re in the dark, stop and ask God if he’s still there with you. I know what his answer will be. Your Lighthouse will be shining brightly to guide you to him.
Then listen to this song again and remember that we belong to God and he’ll never leave us.
