Our children are born with different personalities, strengths and weaknesses and sometimes with special challenges too. This little “mommy song” can reassure our children that not only do we love them (see I Love You, Yes I Do!), we also like them just the way God made them.
What a comfort and reassurance this understanding can bring to a child’s heart! This is comfort coming from Mommy’s voice and heart. From Mommy’s acceptance and delight in them as a special gift from God.
God's Gift to Me
Perhaps you would like to sing this simple song to each of your children. Add a smile and a hug and your child may feel as if a ‘warm blanket’ was just wrapped around his/her heart today!
God’s Gift to Me
“I like you, just the way you are.
I like you, you’re my shining star!
God made you so special,
That I clearly see…
You’re God’s gift to me!!

As a young daughter my parents encouraged me to memorize Scripture verses. I memorized Isaiah 41:10 and it became one of my favorite verses.
“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10
As an adult I continue to treasure Isaiah 41:10. And I can say with confidence that God has always been faithful to His Word. Praise Him! He is worthy of all our trust.
