Affirmation quotes to help you share joy!
Being a kid can be tough at the best of times. But a new year and a new school term can be particularly challenging.
That’s why we’ve created a special, limited edition collection of Biblically-based affirmations for kids that you can use to encourage a child or young person in your life. It’s our heart to champion children all around the world, encouraging them that they can find value and confidence in who they are in God.
You can also print one of these positive affirmations for kids and send as an encouragement to your sponsored child.
Affirmations for kids: finding peace in God
The Bible tells us that God gives us peace, even when we face immense challenges. This affirmation is based on the truth we find in John 16:33:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
If you know a child or young person feeling daunted by what they’re facing, you can print this artwork, open up John’s gospel together and reflect on how God gives us peace amidst the storms.
Chosen, loved and valued
Recognising our identity and value is something we can all struggle with at times. It can be hard for young people to drown out the lies that they’re not good enough or that nobody cares.
God tells us that this simply isn’t true. This positive affirmation reminds us of the powerful verse in Ephesians 1:4. Even before the creation of the world, God chose us.
Positive affirmations for children: a bright future
When others around us are fearful for what the future brings, we know we have a God who has good plans for us. Celebrate the truth of Jeremiah 29:11 with this colourful downloadable.
If you sponsor a child with Compassion, this would also make a beautiful paper gift to send to your sponsored child. You can rejoice with your sponsored child that you’re working together with their family and local church to bring them a bright future full of hope!
Strong and courageous
A new school term, upcoming exams or struggles with friends can feel like giants that are too big to overcome. Why not print this affirmation, hang it in your child’s bedroom and remind them that God is bigger than whatever situation they’re facing!
Take the opportunity to read the story of Joshua together and focus on how God gave Joshua the strength to claim the promised land, despite the daunting prospect of enemies standing against him.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Affirmation quotes: created in God’s image
Use this printable affirmation to remind someone you care about that they are so valuable, they’re created in the very image of God.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27
This positive affirmation would be a great encouragement to send to an older sponsored child!
Casting burdens onto Him
Celebrate the Biblical truth that we don’t have to carry our worries and struggles alone. The Bible tells us that we can cast our burdens onto God and find rest. Our Heavenly Father never gets tired and never gets overwhelmed!
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. – Matthew 11:28
Perhaps print off this truth and pop it inside your child’s lunchbox as a way of reminding them they can seek rest and comfort in their Heavenly Father.
Biblical affirmation for kids: Fearfully and wonderfully made
We all need daily positive affirmations to spur us on in our faith journeys. Use this beautiful affirmation quote to show a child or young person in your life the truth of Psalm 139. Display it in their room or pop it into their school bag as a reminder that God cares for them so much He knitted them together in their mother’s womb.
