"The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold." Psalm 18:2
Today, we created our own fortress. We did it outside but it's a good inside activity, especially on rainy days.
What you need:
- Sheets, blankets and/or table cloths
- Tables, chairs, other "structures"
- Bricks or heavy items
Planting God's Truth:
- What is a fortress? A place where people go for protection. Behind the walls of the fortress, you are protected from the bad guys.
- Who is our fortress? God is our fortress. When we are scared or need protection, we can pray and call on our God who will keep us safe, just like a fortress.
- Read scripture. Psalm 18:2. (There are also several other "fortress verses" in the Psalms.)
- Play A Mighty Fortress Is Our God for your child. I love this old hymn. Especially the version sung by Chris Rice on this album.
