My Father’s Choice By Tammy Nicole Glover

What is man that God is mindful of him?
The Maker of all the heavens and earth.
The One who created man from dust and breathed into his lungs.
Who am I that God would choose me?

It didn’t matter how deep in sin I was in. 
It didn’t matter how much I pushed Him away from me,
His love for me never wavered. 
He still chose me.

Even when my voice was too weak to call out,
His ear was inclined to the cries of my heart.
He kept track of every tear.
He felt every wound inflicted on my soul.
He never looked at me with contempt, only with complete compassion.

Messy, filthy and unruly, yet I was my Father’s choice.
Knowing all the bad choices I would make,
All the times I would turn my back on Him,
He chose me to be His beloved daughter.

He allowed His Only Begotten Son to bear my sins,
Die on a cross and take my place in hell.
More powerful than a phoenix rising from the ashes,
He rose from the grave with the keys of hell
Overcoming death, overcoming darkness,
All for the single purpose of bringing me salvation.

He has created me for a time such as this.
To boldly proclaim the good news.
I am not the only chosen one.
He also chose you.
Will you answer His call and choose Him?

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9 KJV

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV
