Am I my Fatherís daughter?
Sometimes I am a foster childó
loved and cared for,
but tentative and uncertain,
lacking trust.
In a family,
but not belonging
to a family;
never sure when I will be
shipped off, let go, sent away.
In desperate need
of a Fatherís love,
afraid to trust it when it is offered,
not understanding what it means
to be my Father's child.

Am I my Fatherís daughter?
Sometimes I am adoptedó
loved and cared for,
belonging to a family,
given a new identity,
my Fatherís name,
but always wondering
where I came from,
who am I really,
not understanding what it means
to be my Father's child.

Am I my Fatherís daughter?
Sometimes I am a prodigaló
loved and cared for,
but selfish and impulsive,
thinking only of myself,
wasteful and wandering,
squandering my inheritance,
disdaining my Fatherís love
and true inheritance,
not understanding what it means
to be my Fatherís child.

Am I my Fatherís daughter?
Sometimes I am the elder siblingó
loved and cared for,
but selfish and rigid,
thinking only of myself,
bitter and resentful,
waiting greedily for my inheritance,
ignoring my Fatherís love
and true inheritance,
not understanding what it means
to be my Fatherís child.

Am I my Fatherís daughter?
Sometimes I am!
Loved and cared for,
trusting and confident,
rejoicing in who I am
and who my Father is,
delighted to be with my Father
and part of His family,
reflecting my Father
in all I say and do,
finally understanding what it means
to be my Father's child.

The article is as beautiful as your love for the heavenly Father. Surely you are His little princess in His arms. He is mindful of His children. Pray that "Lord build a close relationship with me and thou art be mindful of me and my needs" everyday and witness His wealth of blessings. God Bless!
