Who I Am (for kids)

I am ____________,
a child of the One true God.
God made me to be exactly as I am,
and He teaches me to be more like Him.

He loves me, no matter what I do and what I don’t do,
and He teaches me to love others in the same way.
He shares all that He has with me, taking care of me,
and He teaches me to help others by sharing with them.

He likes for me to spend time talking to Him,
and He listens carefully to every word that I say.
He helps me to make good decisions when I don’t know what to do,
and He wrote all about Himself in the Bible so that I can know Him better.

God is always with me, even when my mom and dad can’t be,
and I will always be His Child, no matter how old I may be.
He wants me to be with Him so much that He sent Jesus,
just to show me how important I am to Him.
Now I can live with Him and the rest of His Family forever.

He is my Heavenly Father, the perfect Dad,
and He loves me forever, exactly as I am.

A Child of God

.

I am a Child of The God Most High, Created in His Image

and Adorned with The Riches of my Inheritance in His Kingdom.

I have been Redeemed by the Life, Death and Resurrection of The King;

Washed Clean by The Blood of The Lamb;

and Cloaked in The Royal Robe of Righteousness by The Most High Priest.

 I have been Delivered out of the land of the enemy by The Lord of Hosts,

Set Free by Truth through The Power of God’s Word.

I have been Baptized by The Holy Spirit, Who lives in me,

into The Blessings and Promises of God Almighty,

Adopted through Faith into The Family of Abraham.

 I have been Grafted Permanently into The One True and Living Vine,

Sustained by Its Living Waters.

I am a Living Branch, forever Entwined and made One with The Body of Christ.

The Tree of Life grows within me and I Flourish under Its Healing Leaves.

I Abide forever in my Father’s House

In The Place that He has Prepared for me alone,

Sheltered by the Shadow of His Wing.

I Sup at The Sufficiency of His Table, Nourished by The Bread of Life.

I am Shepherded into Peace and Bathed in Love

by The Light of The Son and The Glory of The Lord,

Strengthened by The Rock that Upholds me.

I have Passed through The One True Gate under The Banner of The Lord,

into Resurrection and Life Everlasting.

I am Sanctified as I Worship The Holy One:

The Self-Existent Creator and Sustainer Who sees Me –

The God Who is Always There, Eternally Providing for my every need –

My Father.

 I Am a Child of The Great “I AM”
