  1. Denise,
    “He chooses us – even when we’re struggling to choose Him.” Praise! On days when I feel like I’m barely holding on by a thread, I am so thankful that He promises to never let me fall. God has always been faithful and true to that promise. Then He draws me into Himself and hides me beneath the refuge of His wings. May I always sing the Praise of my wonderful Lord and may my countenance reflect His radiance…this is my prayer today. Have a blessed Sunday!

  2. I’m so glad He chooses us even when we are struggling to choose Him. I know it’s as easy as asking Him into my life but I’m afraid I’ll let Him down.

    • Ann Marie we all let him down. We all battle the flesh and knows this. His love is so greater than we can comprehend. His gentle love and forgiveness greets us new each morning. Do not let thoughts of not being good enough hold your mind captive. Those thoughts are from evil. Satans job is to mislead Christians with lies. Lies! Lies! Lies! God loves us unconditionally and no matter how bad we screw up His love NEVER CHANGES!

  3. “Because the Creator of beauty and goodness and truth chooses us” I’m so thankful this makes me stop and be in awe after so many years.

  4. I’m at a loss for adequate words this morning but thank-you so much for this post.

    So grateful to Him


  5. I am chosen, I am loved, he calls me be name, he has plans for me. All of these things are true I my heart even when I don’t feel them in my head. Thank you for the beautiful reminder. I praise his name with all of you. Blessings on your Sunday.

  6. Denise,
    Such beautiful truths! Let us always glorify the Lord. He is always there for us never leaving or forsaking us no matter what! I want to “shine” like Jesus for the whole world to see!!

  7. The message in the next few week at church deals with contentment. It seems to be a thread running through many areas of my life. Contentment with circumstances. Contentment with what I have.Contentment with what I may be loosing because of age, Contentment with change of life. God still chooses me. So beautifully said. I ask to praise Him in all things. Why? He is worthy.
