Draw near to Jesus by Saveen Dsouza

In His ministry Jesus lovingly, invited children. Jesus uses the example of children to portray what true faith looks like.
We should renounce our pride and self-sufficiency, and draw near to Him.

Everlasting Arms by Swasti dewi Wonowidjojo

God’s love for us is greater than the love any human parents can give us. He numbers every single hair on our heads and know our deepest innermost thoughts and still love us deeply and unconditionally. In the Bible when Joseph was overlooked by his father, God still chose him over his other brothers and annointed him to be the next king of Israel. Because of what Jesus has done on the cross, all our mistakes, big or small, past or present are completely forgiven, God is our Father and Heaven is our home.

I am safe by Jordyn Rose de Klerk

God protects me and keeps me safe. If I am afraid or scared, there is nothing to fear, because god is always by my side, keeping me safe.
