Sunday mornings are like game day for children’s ministry. Just like any good coach, gather your team of volunteers for a pre-game pep talk. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion to kick the morning off:
No one likes to wait. This isn’t just a kid problem. We adults don’t dig the waiting either. But what if we used waiting as a opportunity to shift our focus. What if we chose to use that waiting time to trust God more? What if we decided to focus on what He wants to teach us or show us instead of the annoyance or inconvenience? After all, in most situations, we can’t change the amount of time we have to wait. But we can change how we react. So this week’s challenge is simple: the next time your find yourself waiting, ask God to show you something new about Him. Open the Bible app on your phone or bow your head in prayer. You might just find yourself welcoming the wait instead of dreading it. This week, remember – when you think you can’t wait, think about what’s true.
