Chosenness

The truth, even though I cannot feel it right now, is that I am the chosen child of God, precious in God’s eyes, called the Beloved from all eternity and held safe in an everlasting embrace… We must dare to opt consciously for our chosenness and not allow our emotions, feelings, or passions to seduce us into self-rejection.

——Henri Nouwen

Ponder on the reality that you are a child of God and perhaps life will be a lot lighter.


Prayer

Lord we acknowledge that you have chosen  us to be the centerpiece of your creation. Let us accept that privilege and live in a manner worthy of it. In doing so we can manifest your glory in our lives. That glory makes us and the world an easier and lighter place.

Amen
