Look closely and you can see God's touch all over creation. Like the sun, God is warm. Like the stars, God is dazzling. Like the wind, you can always feel Him, even if you cannot see Him God, I Know You're There, by bestselling author Bonnie Rickner Jensen, reminds children of the nearness and goodness of God. Children will discover that God never leaves them, even if they can't see Him. This lesson in faith is paired with the vibrant art style of the talented illustrator Lucy Fleming.
God, I Know You're There leans into the wonder of a childlike faith and celebrates both God and His marvelous creation. Each verse helps a child to understand that there are things in the world we can't see, touch, or hear, and yet they are real. And even if God feels distant, He is real and near us.
Celebrate the simplicity and wonder of childlike faith as you spend time together imagining all the ways God is near and around us:
Clouds, I can't snuggle you.
Still I know you're there.
I watch you forming puffy shapes--
A lion, bird, and bear.
Moon, I can't swing from you.
You're hanging like a silver night-light
In the evening air.
This delightful walk through the wonder of creation closes with this powerful reminder: God, I know You're there.
