Day 13 - Only a Child of God

Lucy was selected to be a Grade 7 prefect this year.  I got to pin Lucy's prefect badge on her in a special ceremony at school.  As I was hugging her and telling her that I love her I was reminded of the chorus of a song called "Child of God":

"Father, You're all I need,
My soul's sufficiency,
My strength when I am weak,
The love that carries me,
Your arms enfold me, till I am only
A child of God."

May we find our identity in being a child of God - not in our position life, our occupation or in what we possess but in being the beloved of God.  "Only" that... nothing more.
