When you ask Jesus to love and protect you…you are never all alone…ever again. Does that sound good? I hope so. Because it’s not good to be all alone. And for little ones, it can be scary. Just imagine if you walked all around the world and never saw anybody. What if you were the only person on earth? Kinda spooky to think about isn’t it? But, guess what. When you’re a child of God, you don’t ever have to feel that way. In fact, you could walk all around the earth, not see anybody, and still know you’re never all alone. That’s pretty cool, don’t you think?
There’s a place in the Bible where God tells you He’ll never leave you. He wants you to know you can always depend on Him. He loves you so much that He made a way for you to never be all alone…and to live with Him forever. Wouldn’t it be great to know you’ll be in a beautiful place with God and your family and friends who love Him, too? And wouldn’t it be great to know it will never end? Well, you can know. Trust the One who made you. And here’s a rhyme to help you remember. It’s called “Music Pajamas” You can hear it in episodes of the Rhyme and Reason Podcast, too.
It’s time…to let the daylight fly
Away, but we don’t have to cry
Because…another day will dawn real soon.
So smile…and say a sweet goodnight.
Sleep well. Don’t let the bedbugs bite.
They won’t, if you’ll just slip into this tune.
And wear your music pajamas.
And sing the songs of your mamas
Because they gave you a life of your own.
Through all the cartoons and dramas…
Through all the triumphs and traumas…
Slip on your music pajamas,
And know that God is on His throne.
And you’re never all alone.
Night winds…float down from falling stars.
Lights blink…from Jupiter and Mars.
They bounce…across the water on the grass.
Inside…you’re in a soft cocoon
Of down…the color of the moon.
Dreams come…when you just let the sandman pass.
