AS YOU GO - FAMILY MINISTRY - TRUST ACTIVITES Activity Play two simple trust games. Parents and children participate. In game #1, set a small obstacle course in the living room (like a maze with pillows and other soft objects). Parents will blindfold one child at a time and guide him or her through the maze. Parents can do this by holding the child’s hand or by using their voices or both. For smaller children, I would use both. If you don’t want to do the maze, then make it simpler. Blindfold the child and give him a cup. Guide him to the table where he can safely place the cup on top of it. In game #2, play the typical “trust game” where the child stands about 2 feet from the parent (front to back). The child then lets go and “falls” backward. The parent catches her by the armpits. The first few times, the child will probably want to step back to “catch” herself, but the point is to trust that the parent will catch her and keep her from falling. Pray as a family to trust God more!

JEHOVAH - MEPHALTI JEHOVAH MEPHALTI – THE LORD IS MY DELIVERER Ps. 182:2 The Lord (Jehovah) is my rock, my fortress, and My Deliverer (Mephalti) My God is my rock, in home I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Praise thee Jehovah Mephalti, you are the deliverer. You are my rock and my fortress, in you alone can I take refuge. Whoever is in you is delivered and saved by your hand. The theif comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but your hand oh Lord delivers me into your light, the truth. You came that I may have life and have it to the fullest. I praise you for you are holy for you are sovereign, you are the rock of ages, and the horn of my salvation. I give me strength when I am weak, you deliver me and give me great joy in my heart. Jehovah Mephalti, I know that sometimes I fall short. Sometimes fear and anxiety creep into my being and lead me astray. I know that sometimes doubt is stirred up in my heart, when I should be focused on your power, might, and delivering hand. I should be trusting in your sovereign might instead of fear and anxiety. Forgive me Lord when time is wasted and I make human attempts to fix things, when I should be seeking the face of my deliverer, my Mephalti. Jehovah Mephalti, I thank you through your love you only give me what you know I can handle when looking to you as my fortress, rock, deliverer, and stronghold. I thank you for having patience with me, and in abundance at times. I thank you for your great love and forgiveness of seven times seventy times. I thank thee that your mercies are new every day, great is thy faithfulness. I thank you for the gentle reminders that you give me that you alone are my Mephalti, my deliverer. Give me the peace that comes with trust, give me that grace that comes with hope! For the blessed assurance that you are more powerful than anything that comes against me because you are my deliver, my Mephalti. AMEN!

ELOHIM - THE STRONG CREATOR GOD Heavenly Father you are the creator of all things, the creator of Heaven and Earth, the sun and the moon, the stars and the skies, the mountains and the seas, and of all living creatures. Help me Lord to always be in awe of your creations from the Elephant with the long nose to the Mosquito that drives me crazy, how wonderful is the splendor of your creation. I stand amazed at the how you have created each human uniquely and in your image. How wonderfully made am I and that you have supplied me perfectly with all I need to sustain life, from my bones to the breath you have breathed into us, only you alone could have possibly made a creation so perfectly. Elohim I do confess though that I fail to recognize your creative power, your creativity, and give credit to the author and perfecter of life and all things that sustain life. Forgive me when I forget to see your hand clearly in creation or when I fail to stop and be in awe of your wonderful masterpiece. Forgive me for doubting where I should trust you, especially when it comes to my own life, my health, and my purpose. Elohim, I thank you for your patience with me, as just of small part of your creation. I Thank you of the peace and security you give me when I recognize you are the creator. I thank you that you have created us with the intelligence to see just how intricate your creation is, to be able to be in awe of how each piece of your creation plays a part of the whole, from giving us day and night, to just how perfectly the rains and the lights sustains all of your creation. Elohim, May I trust you with all things, knowing that you have created all I need to sustain my life as well as reach out to others. Help me to be a good steward of your creation, while always being in awe of the masterpiece that you allow us to enjoy each and every day. Guide me to trust you as you paint my life's story, as you are the potter and I am the clay. Praise you Elohim, for being the creator God. AMEN!
