Lessons from Reading to my Kids
Contributed by: Mr. Kyle DeWees
Greetings Charger Nation!
I miss you all! Thanks for the opportunity to share a Chapel message with you.
I may have mentioned this to you all before, but I enjoy reading to our kids. Recently, I was reading a bedtime story to Beckett and Avery (they say hi).
This particular night we were reading from the Jesus Storybook Bible. The message from the story really jumped out to me on that day. Specifically, one single line from the text stood out to me: “Did you forget who I AM?”
In the link below, I read the story just as I would read it to our kids. And, I brought along a friend to talk a little about the lessons we can learn from Jesus’ in this story.
Have a great Summer everyone.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight. Psalm 3:5-6

“Jesus wept.” — John 11:35
That’s it. Short, to the point. Finding himself at the graveside of a dear friend, seeing the anguish of others he loved all around him, Jesus wept. Some say he wept to show his humanity. It’s more likely he wept because of his humanity. We understand that — it’s a natural response to hardship, pain and loss in our world. And we’re dealing with a great deal of that these days. So, when those emotions come out from down deep and need to get out, just remember, like you and me, Jesus wept. After all, we’re only human.
We’re having a tough time here. We see challenges all around us; we see people we know and love hurting, scared and worried. In fact, that describes each of us, too. The emotions can be overwhelming. You know exactly how that feels since you experienced all the same pain and loss as we do. Calm our fears and wipe away our tears. Refill our emotional energy tanks so that we can serve your people in this time of incredible need. Allow your love for us to empower us, despite our fears and emotions, to claim your strength.
Bless us, protect us, and help us serve.
