And so, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Did you know you were chosen?
Did you know God picked you out specifically to be your child’s parent?
Did you know God chose you to receive Eternal Life, Everlasting Life?
Did you know God sacrificed his own son for you to live forever?
Did you know you are loved by God and cared for?
Chosen as defined in the Webster’s Dictionary says that it is one who is the object of choice or of divine favor. Wow, that makes me feel so special. He chose me to be Charlie’s mom.
God favors you and loves you. He does this all the time. He loves you unconditionally.
I know this concept was really hard to grasp so many years ago. We all have choices and make them daily. I know in the past as a kid I connected doing good=love, doing bad=no love. But God loves us all the time, no matter what. Of course, he wants us to make good choices, but loves us also in spite of bad choices we may make. Ephesians 2:8,9 says “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves it is a free gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast”. God wants us to come to Him always like Romans 10:13 says, “Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved”. What reassurance and peace I have in knowing that. If you want to have this reassurance please go to our prayer wall so we can pray with you.
God makes everything in love and perfection. My Charlie is perfect. Perfect for me. I am honored that God chose me specifically to be his mom. What a blessing!
