Day 19: Chosen


So how do you fathom

THE TRUTH

that you are

CHOSEN BY GOD,

when you are being

UNCHOSEN

by those around yo?

You can't fathom it,

as you know yourself so well,

as you know your imperfections so well,

as you know that you fall short of other's expectations so well,

as you know that you fall short of your own expectations.

BUT GOD SAYS YOU ARE CHOSEN.

Isn't it pride to receive those words?

Isn't it self righteousness to receive those words?

How do you receive those words when

you feel so

UNCHOSEN

because you keep receiving the message that you are

UNCHOSEN.

YOU BELIEVE GOD.

Oh HUMILITY takes over when you

BELIEVE GOD,

because you know that you did nothing to deserve your

CHOSEN status

except to

BELIEVE the ONE who asked you to BELIEVE.

So easy,

that it is too hard to fathom.

BUT

BELIEVING isn't self righteousness because you are

BELIEVING the ONE who has made you right.

We were all born wrong.

Hard truth.

But ever since the garden, we inherited Adam & Eve's big "oops".

But because GOD does not want ANYONE to PERISH,

and HE means EVERYONE

because HE created EVERYONE,

HE took the "oops" that the enemy used to destroy humanity

and threw it back in his face

by BREAKING HIS MOST PRECIOUS POSSESSION~

JESUS

because

GOD CHOSE for us

to enjoy the

FRUITS of THE PERFECT GARDEN

like HE intended from the the very beginning.

"In the very beginning GOD...."

when HE deemed all that HE created as

GOOD,

even HIS first humans were GOOD.

Because GOD is GOOD.

So what makes me GOOD and what makes you GOOD?

CHOOSING the ONE

who IS GOOD.

So even though my

CHOOSING GOD

and my CHOOSING JESUS CHRIST

has put a mark on my life

from others

that demands PERFECTION from me,

my

CHOOSING GOD

&

CHOOSING JESUS

is admitting

that I fall so short ,

as I am covered with imperfections,

that I need

JESUS' PERFECTION

to cover me

with

HIS PERFECTION

The TEARS are flowing.

HAPPY TEARS that are warming my soul

as I am CHOSEN~

not by my doing but by HIS doing.

Am I self righteous? NO.

Will I stumble and fall? YES.

Will that make me UNCHOSEN?

Never by my GOD.

Never my your GOD.

Because GOD IS GOOD

and HE IS THE GOOD in my life

because of

"THE POWER OF THE CROSS"

(listen to the song below)
