22c — Origami Boat (Craft)

Fold a Boat with a Quote —

The Bible teaches that it’s not how much faith I have, but what I place my faith in that matters. Like Peter in the Sea of Galilee, are my eyes fixed on Jesus or the strong waves surrounding me?

God’s fondest desire is that:
1) I remember that he is my refuge and strength. (Psalm 46:1)
2) I trust him and ask for his help in times of trouble.
3) I believe that he will work all things together for my good — even the bad things. (Romans 8:28)

A fun way to remember this is to learn to fold an origami faith-boat. Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures.

Before you begin, click here and then use a copier to print these words onto a blank piece of paper. Then follow the folding demonstration in the how-to video produced by smilo75. (Be sure the words are on the inside for the first fold.) Enjoy!

My Prayer

Dearest Father, Thank you that you are my refuge and strength and will help me through times of trouble. Help me to keep my faith focused on you — even when the waves of life get big. Amen.
