I took the kids to a water park today and we had a blast! I was planning to blog with some fun pictures of them but The Lord put on my heart to let my 7 year old daughter, Ellie, give her perspective of our day. Ellie had an “outside of her shell” moment today that I feel will inspire and encourage you.
The day I tried by ellie Gilbert
today I went to a water park and I swam. here is a picture of Me and my brother and sister.
We swam for a while then my dad said “do you want to go on the big slide?”. I said NO! I said no because I am scared.
then my mom said ” God has not given you a spirit of fear but a power of love and a sound mind “. I was still a little scared but my mom said she will go too. so I whent with my mom to see how fast it goes I saw that it was slow so I decided to try it. while i waited for my turn I said the verse my mom told me. I was scared but I did it anyway. it was fun ! i rode it lots of times after that .
if you ever feel scared just ask god and he will help you. i am glad I went or if I didnt I would have missed the fun.
