Don’t Forget Whose Child You Are

My Niece & Nephew

I love it when a beautiful song comes to mind, playing softly in my heart and soothing my soul.

I often have a song in my heart, and the other day it was “This Little Light of Mine” by Addison Road. One line in particular spoke to me that day. It’s so simple, yet powerful:

Don’t forget whose child you are.

In a noisy world where it’s so easy to drown out the still, small voice of our heavenly Father, it’s so important to remember whose child we are. We are His children. He is our Father. He loves us more than we could ever fathom. Our devotion to Him is so small compared to His devotion to us.

Don’t forget whose child you are.

Our identity is not in our faults, our sins, our problems. It’s not in our past, our present, or our future. It’s not in our title, our degree, our accomplishments, our job, our personality, etc.

We are His children.

He is our Father.

And no one can take that from us.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Yeshua Messiah our Master. (Romans 8:37-39)

Don’t forget whose child you are.

Cast your burden on Yahweh, And let Him sustain you; He never allows the righteous to be shaken. (Psalm 55:22)

  1. Joy, this blog blessed me so much. His arm is never shortened that it can’t reach us. He will never leave nor forsake us. Even though the Israelites did so much wrong and didn’t have trust and faith in Yehovah or Yeshua, his mercy was still there. He is the best kind of personal friend and even better than that He is our Saviour. Thanks for sharing your faith because it stirred me up! Love you, Janice

    1. Awww…I’m so glad it encouraged you, Miss Janice! What you’ve said is so true.

      “For You, יהוה, are good, and ready to forgive, And great in kindness to all those who call upon You.” (Psa 86:5)
