Reflection on Today’s Devotional:

“When I was in second grade, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and dyscalculia. These are learning differences that meant it was difficult for me to distinguish my left from my right, learn the alphabet, learn to read and write, and learn my math facts. Once I got this diagnosis, I knew that there was nothing “wrong” with me, even though it took me longer to complete assignments or study. I worked hard with my tutors. Last year I had to take another test to confirm my dyslexia and dyscalculia. I was scared that they would tell me that my learning differences were gone. I do not think this can actually happen, but it was a fear. If I didn’t have dyslexia, I would have had more trouble in school without there being a reason why. Thankfully, that did not happen. Getting confirmation of my learning differences was reassuring. God made me this way and there is nothing wrong with me. I am, you are, we are children of God. We are perfectly made, even in the face of fear.


Dear God, Help us to remember that we are loved by You and cared for by You. Help us to be strong in the face of failure and to remember that we are your children. Amen.” – Amelia King (FPC Youth)
