Chosen by God!
"Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love." (Ephesians 1:4 Amplified)
Let these words reflect your heart. Hear them as if you are speaking them:
I stand in awe of God’s perfect, unconditional, and everlasting love for me! It just amazes me how much He wanted me! How can I not give thanks, worship, and praise Him at all times? While I don’t consider myself creative I do have my unique ways to praise and worship Him that are just for us, and between us. I treasure our intimacy and that He even desires intimacy with me. I look for Him in my day and just talk to Him, love on Him, and admire Him. He is my Abba Father and I love Him. Even in the difficult times, I love Him. My love is not contingent upon anything He does for me, it is based on everything He is to me because of His great love for me expressed so selflessly in the gift of His Son Jesus Christ. I can’t help but love on Him in every way I can.
"My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God." (Ephesians 3:14-19 MSG)
