Grace

Your grace isn’t a thing that You place in my hands. Your grace is your very Hand, Jesus, offered to me to hold onto. And when I don’t even have the faith for that, it’s the Hand that is on my back, guiding me forward into the next moment, because you never leave my side. Thank you, Jesus! (Isaiah 41:10-13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Hebrews 13:5-6)

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.” Isaiah 41:10-13

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

. . . for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:5-6

Episode 110: 2 Kings 9-10 God Brings Judgment Through Jehu

In this episode, God keeps His promise to destroy Ahab’s family, but because of Jesus, we can be saved from punishment and serve Him as the true and perfect King. 

With your kids: Who makes you feel angry sometimes? Tell God about it and ask for Him to love that person through you. 

Episode 109: 2 Kings 8 God Acts Through Elisha

In this episode, God moves a king’s heart to provide for a woman and uses Elisha to carry His plan forward. Because of Jesus, we can trust God’s plans in our lives no matter what happens. 

With your kids: Pray together for someone who needs God to provide for them. Thank Him for being so strong and powerful. 

Full of Eyes Youtube Videos

You can certainly check out the channel, but here are some of my favorites:

These are Written

Everlasting Arms

True Food

Chris Powers’ hope is to “fill this channel with videos that exalt Jesus Christ as the Joy, King, and Savior of the world. He is the One in whom we see and know God, and so I want all eyes fixed on Him. I’d love it if the Lord would use these videos to point you to Christ, and to empower you to point others to Him as well.”

These are beautifully illustrated animations that have helped me to remember my lostness without Christ, and many aspects of the gospel. 

P.S. And I couldn’t help but share this video again.

He Is (Names of God)

This 10 minute video brought tears to my eyes as the names of God through the entire Bible are proclaimed.
