Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
~Psalm 139:5
This verse was a reminder that God has chosen me. He has adopted me and blessed me.

Children of the Heavenly Father
                                        ~Carolina Berg

Children of the Heavenly Father
         Safely in His bosom gather;
Nestling bird nor star in heaven
         Such a refuge e'er was given.

God His own doth tend and nourish;
         In His holy courts they flourish.
Like a father Kind He spares them,
         In His loving arms He bears them.

Neither life nor death can ever
         From the Lord His children sever;
For his love and deep compassion
         Comfort them in tribulation.

Little flock, to joy then yield thee;
         Jacob's God will ever shield thee;
Rest secure with this Defender,
         At His will all foes surrender.

What He takes or what He gives us
         Shows the Father's love so precious;
We may trust His purpose wholly-
         'Tis His children's welfare solely.
