Sonship is not fragile

It is not continually on the verge
Of being destroyed
Or broken.
It is not the kind of thing
That is easily discarded
Or misplaced because of carelessness
Nor diminished because of neglect.
You are a son.
You belong to Someone.
Room has been made for you
Your space has been reserved
Your name uniquely given
Your identity unquestionable.
Yes, you may often fail
To live as though this were true
But you are still a son.
Ultimately your sonship
Was never something you earned
Nor did you create it
For yourself.
Indeed you were made a son
By the desire
And decisive action your Father.

He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father.
Psalm 2:7
