Theme: Trusting God While Suffering

God’s plan for Joseph was to be in charge of all of Egypt. But first, Joseph was sold as a slave and then left to die in prison. No matter where he was or how life was going, Joseph trusted God.

Read Joseph’s story in Genesis 39-41.


  • Trials and suffering in this life will come. Tell stories of when you have suffered and received comfort from God. Talk about comforting others if you have suffered the way they are.
  • Use lettered beads to create jewelry or bookmarks that proclaim “The God of All Comfort loves me!”

    1 Corinthians 1:3-4

    Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in trouble with the comfort we ourselves received from God.
