Are you teaching The Miracle as part of your New Testament Come Follow Me Songs this year? It’s a beautiful song written by Shawna Edwards. In this fun activity, you’ll be able to Picture His Miracles as you point out each miracle talked about in this song.
The Miracle Picture His Miracles
You can use this activity to help you teach or as a fun way to review this song. I’ll leave the review ideas below in the extension activities if you’re looking for more of a review.
You can use this The Miracle flip chart to help you teach this song as well.
Show the first page of miracles. Ask the children what do they see? What do these 3 things have in common? (They involve water, the colors are similar, there are swirly lines, etc).
Did you know these 3 are also in the scriptures connected to a miracle Jesus performed? Can you think of a miracle for each one? Today we are going to sing a song all about Christ’s miracles!
Sing the song one line at a time, connecting each to their symbol. This visual representation will help them with a cue to remember what line comes next and the order of the miracles. After you’ve sang each of these lines, start from the beginning and sing them together.
Put that first page up on the board and teach the second page next. You can ask again how these 3 relate to each other (healing, taking away burdens, etc). Teach the song line by line, then sing this set of lines. Then start at the beginning and sing through this far in the song.
The 3rd page – Bread & Raised from the Dead connections might include connecting physical healing, making us whole, removing physical pains.
And for the 4th page your connections could be how they differ – from death to resurrection.
I recommend teaching only one verse on a given week, but you can come back to this activity for the next verses at a later time or push through if that’s your preference.
- Have the children help you get the pages back in the correct order. You could dramatically “accidentally” drop the pages or simply have them all out of order. Can they correctly rearrange them to their song order?
- For a harder challenge, great for older kids, cut out each of the miracles into individual strips and then scramble up all the miracles together before arranging in order.
- Play a game of sort. Have the children find miracles that they think are similar and “match” so to speak. Which ones do they think are similar and why? This would be a great small group task with a copy of the miracles for each. Let them share which ones they paired together and what similarities they noticed. This is great for critical thinking and I bet you’ll be surprised by some of the awesome connections they make.
- Place the 1-page for the chorus (Jesus holding a heart with the word Miracles) in the center of the board. Have a child come up while you sing to pick a miracle and add it somewhere around Jesus. Have the children share their favorite miracle and why!
