I’ve been singing an awesome song at the top of my voice recently and had it playing repeatedly at home- Hillsong’s “Who you say I am” has the refrain ‘I am a child of God’ and sings of the Father’s love and provision for us.

Look up 1 John 3:1-3 (

These words are incredibly powerful.
John says “See what great love the Father has lavished on us….”

He calls us to see, to actively look!
I love the word ‘lavish’ because it’s a reminder of how extravagant, extra-ordinary THIS Love is!
So much so, that we gain a new title!



Have you ever got caught in a rip current when walking into the water at the beach or fast-flowing river? Scary hey!?
What if you had an ‘Iron man’ athlete walking with you?
Maybe not as scary

Look up Isaiah 43:2-3 (

This is your Saviour; the Holy One speaking. He is ‘The Lord your God’, the One who redeemed you and called you by name. He will be with you through your life’s challenges and will not allow you to be overtaken by the waters or the fire.

You belong to Him and you belong with Him, just as He is your God.



Do you ever feel like you get overlooked because you’re a teenager?
Maybe you’ve been bullied because of your faith, background, skin colour, or because you’re the youngest.

Timothy was a young pastor who had been discipled and trained by Paul. He had a tendency to be shy and nervous – but God saw Him differently and had called him to be a leader.

Chew on 1 Timothy 4:12 (

Don’t allow how others see you (or what others see in you), stop you from believing what God sees in you – continue to be a shining example for Jesus.



Meghan Markle became royalty last year by marrying Prince Harry – it’s like all the fairy tales became a reality. Everything changed.

When you met Jesus, everything changed for you too.
*You* became royalty too.

Read John 1:12 here:

When you accept Jesus into your heart, believe that He died and rose again for your sins, and that you are now forgiven, free from sin and reconciled back unto God – you have become a CHILD OF GOD, who is the King of Kings, which makes you ROYALTY 🙂
