‘I’m a Child of God‘ is a poem I wrote a little while back for my book My Heart, Christ’s Home: 100 Days of Joy and Strength in Jesus. Also, it’s a reminder to me that God loves me no matter what I’ve done and no matter what I am going through.
It is based on Psalm 139: 13-15.
God Chose To Create Us
God chose to create me and he chose to create you as well. Moreover, nothing about me is an accident. From the color of my hair to the time and place I was born, He designed me on purpose for a purpose.
Additionally, He knew who my parents would be. All the things I love to do including writing, acting, art and more were planted in my heart before I was even born. And, He has a plan for me. He wants us to use the skills, talents and gifts that He blessed us with for His purpose.
You are not an accident either! Everything about you was planned by God for a reason. You are also a Child of God. And, He loves you more than either of us could ever see or imagine.
I’m a Child of God
I'm a child of God Daughter of the Most High A Princess in His Kingdom Created to fly Adopted by faith Received by grace Created for His purpose Unique in every way. Loved, forgiven Chosen to share His light Called by the Father Who gives me strength to fight I have a heavenly home Am beloved by my Groom I'm the bride of Christ And I'm going home soon Purified through His blood Redeemed through His sacrifice Made holy for an eternity Reigning with my King.

Because of Jesus I Am A Child Of God
Jesus paid the ultimate price so that we could be reconciled with the Father. Most importantly, I am a child of God because He sacrificed himself in order to pay for our sins once and for all.
No matter how badly you think you have sinned or ever will sin, the price has already been paid. All you have to do is receive it. It is a gift of grace through faith in the saving blood of Jesus Christ.
For example, when our parents give us gifts, we accept them with joy and gladness. How much more so, should we accept the gift of our Father- eternal life in heaven with Him.
I’m A Child Of God Yes I Am!
So , now when I get down, make mistakes or am facing a trial of some kind, I will remind myself of what God says about who I am! I am a child of God yes I Am! And, so are you! Moreover, no matter what the world says or what anyone else says, we are God’s children and have a home in heaven.
Take time to be with the Lord. Let Him speak to your heart. You can trust Him with all of your burdens and He has all the answers you seek.
