What do you do when your puppy runs away from home?
What do you do when your favorite toy breaks? What do you do when your mommy is sick for a long time?
Sometimes you feel sad and you just don’t know what to do. Sometimes your life is hard and you don’t know how to feel better. What should you do when you feel sad?
The Bible says that God is with you when you feel sad. The Bible says that God is near you when bad things happen. God wants to help you out when you are feeling sad, He wants to be with you when bad things make you cry.
Pretend that God is sitting on your couch with His arms opened up to you. Crawl up onto the couch and pretend that you are sitting on God’s lap. Now, as you cry, pretend that God is holding you. That is what God wants for you. He wants you to feel Him with you when you are sad. God wants you to pray when you are sad, to tell Him how you are feeling, and He wants to help you feel better. God is with you and He loves you, and He is there when you are sad.
What makes you sad?
“The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)
