From where I’m standing
Lord it’s so hard for me to see
Where this is going
And where You’re leading me
I wish I knew how
All my fears and all my questions
Are gonna play out
In a world I can’t control
When I’m lost in the mystery
To You my future is a memory
Cause You’re already there
You’re already there
Standing at the end of my life
Waiting on the other side
And You’re already there
You’re already there
From where You’re standing
Lord, You see a grand design
That You imagined
When You breathed me into life
And all the chaos
Comes together in Your hands
Like a masterpiece
Of Your picture perfect plan
BIG IDEA: What God thinks and does is always BEST.
MEDITATING ON THE WORD:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding. In all your ways remember Him. Then He will make your paths smooth and straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6
The heavens are higher than the earth. And My ways are higher than your ways. My thoughts are higher than your thoughts. – Isaiah 55:9
Thank God for the guidance He gives us in His Word and through His Spirit. Ask Him for the courage to trust Him and obey.
- Who helps you make decisions at home? At school?
- Why do you ask for their help?
- If you had to fix a computer who would you ask? (an engineer)
- What is it about God that makes Him our best teacher? Read James 1:5, Jeremiah 33:3.
LIVE IT OUT!
- Read Mark 12:30, Ephesians 4:5-6, and Colossians 1:16. Talk about them together for next week.
- Think of a way you can obey God’s guidance today and do it.

ABOUT FAMILY QUEST: At Reston Bible Church, we firmly believe that parents are a child’s first and most important spiritual leader. In order to support you that mission, we have created a parent devotional and some discussion starters to go along with each lesson your grade school age children are learning at Quest on Sundays. Our hope and prayer is that this material will help you to engage with your children around the topics they are learning on Sunday mornings, answer their questions, go deeper with them, and find real, day-to-day applications. We are honored to be able to partner with you in the critical task of sharing Christ with the next generation.
