You are old enough to know that the world isn’t always a nice place. Sometimes people say and do things that hurt a lot.
You know what it means to be left out. To not be picked for the team. To not be invited to the party.
You feel ashamed by some of the thoughts that just seem to pop into your head uninvited, and then you feel more shame when those thoughts or suggestions lead to an action that you knew was wrong, but you did it anyway.
And so you decide it must be your fault. You blame yourself every time an unkind word stings or you feel left out. Your shame grows with every wrong thought or poor choice.
You often feel afraid and don’t even know why. You might be afraid of the dark or of strange noises in the night.
You decide that the world is a dangerous place and you find ways to protect yourself. You learn to hide who you really are.
You come up with answers to all of the “why” questions about your life. Because you don’t understand and don’t have the right information, the answers you come up with to those questions are incorrect. You then build your life on a foundation of lies because you have never been taught the truth about the life God intended you to have and the opposition you will face.
But what if . . .
When you were eight years old, someone taught you the truth?
What if there is more going on here?
What if you knew you were precious and of great value?
What if you understood that you were loved and claimed before you were ever born?
What if you knew you were never alone?
What if you knew those thoughts might not be yours and that you are good? Not because anyone tells you so, but because God says so, and He created you.
Would it make a difference in your life? Would you have made different choices and looked at the world with different eyes if you had known these truths from the time you were very young?
The Hey Warrior Kids!
Children’s Book Series . . .
Is all about equipping and empowering children to live a life of victory, by teaching them about their identity in Jesus Christ and their position as God’s beloved children. From their position as God’s kids, they come to understand their value as His children. They learn about the opposition they will face in this world and are equipped with biblically based knowledge, about the spiritual battles we all face in a way that can be easily understood and applied.
The battles come in the form of wrong thoughts and messages, which lead to wrong choices and an identity shaped by those messages. By teaching biblical truth at an early age, children are equipped to enter adolescence and adulthood with a base of knowledge enabling them to make God honoring choices and develop a belief system that leads to freedom and victory.
God loves you so much that He had His Son, Jesus, come and pay for all the wrong stuff you have done or ever will do. Jesus paid for it all by dying on the cross for you. He did it because He loves you that much! If you want to be God's kid, just tell Him that you love Him and Jesus. Tell Him that you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done and that you believe that Jesus died for you to pay for it. Say thank you to Jesus for dying for you and ask Him to come live inside of you. When you pray this (praying is talking to God), you become one of His kids forever and ever.
