“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit–fruit that will last.” John 15:16 NIV
Even when they said my skin wasn’t light enough, my hair wasn’t long enough and my face wasn’t pretty enough. Even when they said my clothes weren’t expensive enough. Even when they said I wasn’t skinny enough. Even though they said I was crazy. Even when they said I was worthless. Even when they laughed at me when I dared to expose my dreams. I was still His.
Even when I tried to ignore His voice. Even when I thought I could do things on my own. Even when I fell. Even when I searched for something better. Even when my pride took over. I was still His.
Even when I’m scared. Even when I feel outnumbered and overwhelmed. Even when I’m mistreated. Even when I’m wrong. Even when I’m in pain. Even when I’m in doubt. I’m still His.
There’s no more denying the truth. There’s no point in running from His call. I was His before I came into existence and I will always be His. I might as well accept His grace and mercy. I might as well accept His wisdom. I might as well accept His pure, unconditional love. I might as well get used to being blessed because I belong to Him, God Almighty.
“My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139: 15-16 NIV
