Lord, are you asking us this question about our relationship with you? There have been times when it seemed our problems were overwhelming—too great for even You. But the truth is, they were too great for us. Hearts were too hard. Wounds too deep. But the things that are impossible with humans are possible with You. Thank you, Lord for not being intimidated by our problems. Thank you that nothing is too hard for You. Amen.

Alter Your Altar (Ideas for Family Worship)

Fun with forgiveness: Each of you take a piece of paper and draw two vertical lines, making three columns. Label one column: “Too hard for the Lord…”. Label the next column: “I’m thankful for…”. Label the third column: “Forgive me for…”. Do your best to fill the page in 5 minutes. Then read one item from each column taking turns until you finish. End with prayer.
