when I was younger and not saved I had this deep need to be accepted. The brokenness and rejection in my own family life cause a deep emptiness. This sort of made me go out and seek other people’s crumbs.
I was never the “cool kid nor the “brainy” one either. I was the one who didn’t fit in a category. I was the mis-fit. I had my own drum I followed. I was outgoing enough but I was never “chosen”
My story took on a new identity when Jesus entered my life. As I read God’s word and found out I was “chosen” my heart rejoiced. ( Jn 15:16&John 6:44)
God hand picked me, singled me out, placed his attention and affection on me. The wonderful thing about this is: I didn’t have to have a certain status , Jesus just accepts me. I came broken and battered and heart full of pain and grief . Loneliness used to be my best friend but Jesus has turned it around for me.
No longer do I look to be “chosen” because I already apart of God’s Kingdom. Even wen others reject me , God hasn’t and on a daily basis I get to talk to God, free of charge and 24/7!
Want to know a secret : The President isn’t the most powerful man it’s JESUS and he knows me!.
