I am so glad to offer Issue 149 of BIBLE TIME FUN WEEKLY.
This issue of BIBLE TIME FUN WEEKLY has 19 fun activities, including puzzles, coloring pictures, word searches, and more.
I am delighted by the communication I received from someone who sent me a photo of a child in church poised over the hidden letter puzzle, searching for the letters to the Scripture. It was a very welcome encouragement. We obey God in faith without seeing the many parts of His purpose, and I felt God was declaring His blessing on this project. Thank you.
God leads me to select the verses for each issue. I do not try to develop a theme. Instead, I prayerfully search for Scriptures. Some are favorites, and some are lesser-known and even include the “hard sayings” of the Word. There are three verses about temptation in this issue, several about life choices and devotion to Christ, and a couple are about the Bible. I wonder how God plans to use this little publication to change lives? Eternity will tell.
I think one of my favorite puzzles is the dot-to-dot. I always get stuck on this because I do not want to revive the old worn-out subjects. But a verse on fleeing temptation came to mind, and I had a previous project that I was able to adapt for it.
This issue introduces a new series of memory verse trading card crafts. They have a cleaner design, and there is more space for a larger coloring picture.
I had trouble with the shape-sort puzzle. In the past, I would use a thesaurus to find words, but for this verse, there was not enough variety for all the clue words, so I changed the design to be more like the word drop puzzle. Now it is easier to solve and available to younger students. Let me know what you think.
I pray that the “let’s talk about it” questions enable parents and teachers to have Spirit-led discussions.
I hope your students are enjoying these mini activity magazines. And I pray God’s Word will plant itself in their hearts.
