Edgerrin was fourth to answer and first to get it right.

tonite in trek this was the main point:

I am His for all time.

and this was the verse:

Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.

the bible storyteller asked the room of K-2nd graders… “what is true about God, but not about money?”

answers were varied, and didn’t exactly give the impression that they really understood… and then edgerrin answered…

first let me tell you about edge… edgerrin is a yummy little first grader with an interesting life story…

part of it is this: his mother was in prison, so he and his siblings were distributed to long hollow families that were involved in the Jonah’s Journey program – (a program where kids are able to stay out of the ‘system’ and Christian families are able to foster them) He has been going to Long Hollow since this happened. And is adored by his fostering family… The Downings. He is a spunky, funny kid with alot of story… and a hard past. After all of this time with long hollow families… edgerrin knows God. and knows what it means to be loved by Him.

this is how i know…

when the bible storyteller asked:

the bible storyteller asked the room of K-2nd graders… “what is true about God, but not about money?”

Edgerrin was fourth to answer and first to get it right.

He answered simply, “God stays, Money leaves.”

i wanted to cry because it meant that He has learned what it means when He is told God loves Him. He knows that no matter what happens in his life… God stays. That slays me… (and the downings when i shared this story with them).

Kids learning forever truths. wow.

Do you believe that? Do you believe that God stays?! All the time? and that you are His all the time?
