This ‘Mind Monsters’ Printable Coloring Sheet provides a great opportunity to talk to your kids about what ‘mind monsters’ they might have. We’ve all had them at some point, right? Those thoughts that come to us in the middle of the night; the feelings of fear, anger or guilt that keep us sleepless through the night.
You can use this printable to remind children that Jesus is bigger than any of the mind monsters that they might face; any feeling that they may experience. You can use this printable as a discussion starter into what it means to recognise that Jesus is bigger in our lives and to trust that He can help us to overcome our fears.
To help you get started we’ve come up with a few questions you might want to ask:
- How big do your ‘mind monsters’ feel?
- How big is Jesus?
- Our thoughts can be powerful. What do your thoughts make you think and feel?
- How does Jesus give us power to overcome the thoughts in our head?
- Take a look at the verses below. What do they mean to you?
There are also some fantastic bible verses on controlling our thoughts. Some of our favourites include:
Romans 12:2 – Do not conform to the pattern of the world, but be transformed nay the renewing of your mind.
2 Corinthians 10:5 – We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Colossian 3:2 – Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
If you can get your hands on a copy of ‘Battlefield of the Mind’ by Joyce Meyer we would definitely recommend that you do. As you can see above, they even have a version for kids. This powerful book will challenge you and your children to fight for your mind, recognising that this is just where the enemy would like to take you down! Yet we have power in Christ and through the Holy Spirit to overcome all that the enemy throws at us, when we put our faith in Jesus each day.
If you have a child that is struggling with mind monsters, you might want to invest in this book to help you continue the conversation. (Please note, we are Amazon Affiliates and receive a small commission if you purchase using the link in the photo).
