Jessica is our more emotional daughter. She is prone to emotional break downs. Weâ€™ve tried to work with her to help her learn some coping skills so sheâ€™ll know what to do when she feels a break down coming on. One thing that Iâ€™ve told her to do, especially if weâ€™re not around, is to go to the bathroom or a quite place and relax until she starts to feel better. That seems to really help her.
Wednesday night she asked how you hear God if he doesnâ€™t talk with a voice we can hear. I was trying to explain the different ways God speaks to us. I told her sometimes we just pray and try to listen.
Yesterday at school she started to feel really bad and she started getting real upset. She told me she went to the bathroom and prayed and asked God what she should do. She said she heard him speak inside her and He said to go tell a teacher, so thatâ€™s what she did. It seems kinda like the obvious thing to do, but her childlike faith is so sweet. God cares about the little traumas of a little kindergarten girlâ€™s life and Heâ€™s there to give direction when asked. It made me think that I need to make more trips to the bathroomâ€ myself.
