How many times we experienced days full of activities and we worry that it will be impossible to catch up with everything! School, music lessons, practising a sport, school homework. We need also to find time for recreation and to watch a TV programme, and through all these activities we do not manage to find some time to calm down.
- Spend some quiet time, thinking about your fears
- Take a paper boat template and write your fears on it.
- Pass on your boat from the storm (your fear) to the sun (Jesus) on the board.
- Spare a small prayer, asking Jesus to strengthen your faith in him.
