It’s so hard for me when my kids feel down. I’ll try to encourage them with a funny story or even cooking their favorite meal. But sometimes nothing helps! Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs Ministries.
Sometimes nothing helps. Sometimes all God wants me to do is pray and ask Him to be there for ‘em.
I remember when my son Andrew was about 8 years old and he was going through something really rough so I started praying that God would show up in some way to encourage his son’s heart. But what I didn’t know is that Andrew was praying the same thing. One afternoon he was coming home from school and he saw this beautiful white butterfly. He’d never seen anything like it. And when he got home, told me he’d been asking God to do something to show him that He was with him. And for Andrew this was it.
