My husband recently gave me an anniversary card that declares, “You’re so Right for Me!” Now mind you, our anniversary is not until September 22nd, but we kind of feel every day we celebrate the wonders of God’s grace in bringing us together. We like a daily anniversary moment. This card also reminds me of a selection from my Wellspring book. I thought I’d repeat it here for those of you who might need a reminder that “You are So Right for God!” Yup! That’s why He chose you.
“Sure, God could have passed you by. He could have decided that you had too many issues, too much ego, too many sins to deal with. He could have thought you were just too much trouble. He could have. But He didn’t!
In fact, He looked at you with the eyes of compassion and thought how wonderful it would be if you could see yourself as the whole and beautiful person He sees when He looks at you. He thought about your willingness to be tender at just the right moments and your ability to kindly tolerate those who aren’t quite like you. He saw you in a way that raised you up above the turmoil and the mess that life can be and He determined that everything about you was good. He chose you. He thought you were just right for Him!
Today, He wants you to go out and walk in love, share your heart, and do whatever you can to bring peace and kindness to just one other person. You have been forgiven, loved, and entrusted with this one job. You have been chosen to represent Him to others. Show God what you’re doing with His unending and steadfast love for you. Make Him proud that He chose you!”
Therefore, as God’s choice, holy and loved, put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Be tolerant with each other and, if someone has a complaint against anyone, forgive each other. As the Lord forgave you, so also forgive each other. And over all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Colossians 3:12-14
You are simply amazing!
