Pray this: God, please help us to trust Your plan when things are good and when they’re bad, In Jesus’ name, amen. 

 

5. Activity

You will need a puzzle activity sheet, paper bag, markers and scissors. 

It’s hard to understand why bad things happen, but we can still trust God. Let’s make a puzzle to show how every piece of our life fits together in God’s plan. Even bad things are important pieces of our puzzles. 

  1. Give each child a puzzle sheet and paper bag. 
  2. Get the children to write or draw things they have been through on each puzzle piece.
  3. Cut out the puzzle pieces and place them into the paper bag. 

Questions- 

  1. What happens when a puzzle is missing a piece? It is incomplete, you can’t finish it, it has a hole in it. 
  2. How is a puzzle a lot like our lives? Everything that happens fits in somewhere. God will use every piece to work good, not just some of the pieces.
