Orphans vs. Children

Sometimes I am tempted to feel like little orphan Annie. That’s not a good day. I forget all the Jesus has promised and done for me.

And some days I feel overwhelmed by the wonderful truth that I am truly God’s child. I cry out to God as my Abba, Father. These are good days.

But most days I feel a little of both. Orphan and daughter. And I have discovered that praying through this chart is a good way to ask God to help me experience life more as a daughter and less as an orphan.

Romans 8:15 “For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
