In the Bible, one of Jesus’ friends, Peter, writes: ‘Cast all your worries onto God because he cares for you.’ (1 Peter 5:7)

  • What are you worried about right now? Is there something that’s been making you feel stressed?
  • Put your hands in the bowl of aqua beads and gently take two handfuls of them. As the aqua beads run through your fingers, imagine the worry and stress slipping away too.
  • Pick up a ball and read the saying inside.
  • By worrying less and stressing less, we are able to deal with our problems more effectively.
