International Children’s Day - it seems everybody has a “day” these days. So we are celebrating this day by showing a slide presentation on House of Hope Orphanage in Haiti to the folks at Calvary Evangelical Missionary Church in Lake Park, FL. Then I will be sharing a message especially related to the Youth of this Haitian Church on “How Kids and Youth Can Beat the Giants in Our Lives.”
As you may know Millie is in the ICU unit at Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach, FL recovering from two emergency surgeries. Normally I would be there with her but we feel this day is important to this Mission Church so my son Rick will be with Millie until I get there this afternoon. We are thankful for his presence in our lives at this time in Florida.
Psalm 127:3 says, “Children are a gift from the Lord, the fruit of the womb are a reward.” Children are a blessing from God and should be treated as such and trained to follow God in every way. So on this special day on the calendar make it a special point to let your children know how blessed you are by God to have them as your children. We should also teach them how to overcome the fears and giants in our lives. A study of 1 Samuel 17 would be good to share with your children and grandchildren. Just as David beat the giant in his life so can we beat the giants in our lives because “nothing is impossible with God.”
