Chosen: 1 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

 Reading: 1 Peter 2:8-10: "And A stone that makes them stumble and a rock to trip over. They keep stumbling over the message because they refuse to believe it. And this they were destined to do. But you are God's chosen treasures--priests who are kings, a spiritual nation set apart as God's devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience His marvelous light, and now He claims you as His very own. He did this so that you would broadcast His glorious words throughout the world. For at one time you were not God's people, but now you are. At one time you knew nothing of God's mercy; because you hadn't received it yet, but now you are drenched with it."


Not only the difficulty to understand that God has chosen us to be His own, but that each one is considered a treasure! Something we often feel that is not possible even with our own loved ones.

We carry so much emptiness and rejection from others, and within ourselves at our failures, that the idea seems impossible.

And then we don't recognize or accept His words and messages to be for us. And make excuses to not listen, to not recognize or trust such a grace, and love, and healing.

Thank you, Lord for never giving up on each one of us, for continuing to shine Your light to bring the lies out of our fears, especially when we cannot see that Your mercy is never ending.

Your thoughts,
