Life can be full of twists and turns and sometimes it can be hard to know that God is with us. Here is a really interactive way to help children to engage with the idea of God guiding us on our journey through life.
You will need: Lego baseboards, Lego
Ask children to use the lego bricks to build a maze. There can be as many dead ends and winding paths as they like, but there has to be a way out at the end.
When the children have finished making their mazes, let them swap and follow one made by someone else. However hard the maze might be to solve, whoever has made it knows that the dead ends and misleading paths are not the end of the story. Someone, at least, knows the way through the maze.
Talk about times when it’s hard to know which way to go in life. Who helps you? Talk about times in your life and stories in the Bible where God has helped you or someone to know the right way to go. Psalm 23 is a good example. The psalmist goes through good times in green pastures and beside still waters, but also goes through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. God is always there with him as a guide, showing the way to go and giving him what he needs to get through.
Pray that God will help you to see the way to go in life when you’re not sure or when times are hard.
