I Am Chosen

I am chosen.

These words from Jennifer Rothschild’s Hosea Bible study won’t let me go.

Her words that take me through the picture of being chosen by God give me hope.

Galatians 3:29. “If I belong to Christ, I am one of Abraham’s children and heirs according to the promise.”

I am chosen.

Words that bring peace to my soul.

Echoes of past mistakes.

Promises of bright tomorrows.

God chose me.

I am his first choice.

I am his best choice.

Remember the days of waiting to be chosen?

On the playing field as a child.

In PE as an adolescent.

For a date as a young adult.

Always afraid of being last,

or being passed over.

No more.

With God I am chosen first.

Not because of anything I have or haven’t done.

Because of who and what HE is.

I’m a Gomer Girl and I am a chosen princess of the King.

Jennifer says “God chose Israel, Hosea chose Gomer, and God chose you.” (pg. 28)

“For I am God and not man – the Holy One among you;” Hosea 11-9a.

God sees us through His son.

Man sees us through our mistakes.

Our flaws.

Our insecurities.

Praise God He sees us as we are, covered in the blood of Jesus.

I am chosen.

I am loved.

I am a daughter of the King.
