Choose Truth! This is the theme of the Gems Girls Club this year! In the 7th-8th grade class this year we are learning that the Bible is the true word of God. Our theme verse is “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” Psalm 119:105. In class we are going to learn verses from all 66 books of the Bible so that means about 5 to 6 verses per lesson. As of this writing we are thru the book of Zechariah. An example of a verse we learned is from I Chronicles 16:34-36: Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love endures forever. Cry out, “Save us, O God our Savior, gather us and deliver us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name, that we may glory in your praise.” Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Then all the people said “Amen” and “Praise the Lord!” After we read the verses than we choose one word from each verse that shows God’s greatness or a word about our Christian walk with God. So in the above verse the girls might choose the word deliver or glory or everlasting. We write the words on our paper within a heart shape border that stands for God’s love for us. The girls then choose a portion of the verse that is meaningful to them. The girls are encouraged to choose truth in their everyday lives, and to live a life pleasing to God. These girls are very receptive to learning God’s word! It is a great start in their walk with God!
