God Redeems It All







“So the last shall be first, and the first last, for many are called and few are chosen.” (Matthew 20:16, Young’s Literal Translation)
I’ve always wanted to be chosen.

I was usually chosen-chosen last.

When the class picked teams for PE in elementary school, being slow and uncoordinated prevented me from being top pick for dodge ball.

I was shy and quiet in school. This did not make me prime friend material, either. People just didn’t understand the awesomeness I was hiding behind my shy exterior.

And boys? Well, they liked the girls who flirted with them and talked a lot.

Not me.

What I didn’t realize, like most young people, was that my self-worth wasn’t tied up in what others thought of me.


The need to be chosen and seen by those around me eventually led me into situations that now I wish had never happened...

    I did click on the link and looked around a bit, but couldn't find you there.


    Sigh ...

    I checked and it doesn't look like the post is live on their end yet. Hopefully soon! :)
