We all love when we are chosen, selected, or picked. From our days on the recess playground when teams are picked, to the trip to the doctor's waiting room when the nurse FINALLY comes out of that door that leads back to the exam room and says your name. It is as if we won the lottery. Obviously, some experiences of being chosen are more important than others. Admitted to your college of choice or asked out on a date. No selection is more meaningful than when God chose YOU. Yes, YOU. He has chosen YOU and is always with YOU. He has a purpose for YOU. You are worthy and valuable.
Lord, thank you for choosing me and help me to remember each and every day that your choice gives me value and purpose above any sense of self-devaluation I may feel at the moment.
