GUEST POST: Sample Letter – Trouble, Darkness, Trust


Looking for cool letter ideas for your sponsored child? Here is a great sample letter that will prepare and encourage your child how to trust God during times of trouble and darkness when their whole world seems to be upside down.



Dear____________ (your child’s name)

Greetings in the name of Jesus who loves you so much! I pray this letter finds you healthy and happy.

In every life, times of trouble come. Trouble blows in like storm clouds. Suddenly it is dark and we are afraid. We wonder, where is God? Has God forgotten us? No. God promises never to leave us or abandon us. Just as the dark storm clouds blow in and cover the sun and the mountains so that we cannot see them, so the troubles in our lives sometimes hide God from our sight. But just as the sun and the mountains are still there even though we cannot see them, God is also there for us. When these times come, as they do in every life, faith is like a little light to guide us in the dark. Strengthen your faith in good times so that when the dark and scary times come – and Jesus promises us that they will – your faith will shine like a light in the dark. You will find in the tough times that other people are drawn to the Lord by the light of your faith.

When you were a child, an adult would take you by the hand and guide you through the darkness where you should go. In the same way, God never lets go of us. He holds us by the hand and will lead us through the good times and the bad times of life. Even in death, he will not leave us. He will be with you always. You will never be alone. Spend time reading your Bible. Hear God’s words and draw close to Him. Talk to the Lord in your heart as your go you. Hebrews 13:5-6 says “So we can say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear.’ Even in death, He has promised that we will be with Him. (2 Corinthians 5:8).

We love you and we are so proud of you. It is our joy to watch you grow. Please pray for us. We pray for you and your family every day.

With Love

____________ (your name)
