“Because you are sons, God sent the spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, "Abba, Father." So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.”

There have been many times in my life when I have heard voices saying you'll never be good enough, you don't really matter, you are nobody special, if people really knew you they wouldn¹t find you worthy of their time. The evil one has a way of distorting and down playing the story and the role that God has imprinted on your heart. This is a song about the voice of God breaking through and defeating the other voices, reminding us that we are His children, that He made us in His image, and that He rejoices in us.

You Are A Child Of Mine
(Mark Schultz and Chris Eaton)

I've been hearing voices
Telling me that I could
Never be what I wanna be.
They're binding me with lies,
Haunting me at night,
And saying there's nothing to believe.
Somewhere in the quietness,
When I'm overcome with loneliness,
I hear You call my name.
And like a father You are near
And as I listen I can hear You say

Chorus
You are a child of Mine
Born of My own design
And you bear the heart of life.
No matter where you go,
Oh, you will always know
You have been made free in Christ.
You are a child of Mine

And so I listen as You tell me who I am
And who it is I'm gonna be.
And I hang on every word,
Knowing I have heard
I am Yours and I am free
But when I am alone at night
That is when I hear the lie
You'll never be enough
And though I'm giving into fear
If I listen I can hear You say

Chorus

I am calling…
I am calling…
I am calling…

Chorus
