Have you ever experienced the childhood embarrassment and pain of being the last one chosen? Or, the adult-sized hurt, and agony of being rejected and not being chosen at all? To be chosen, wanted, loved, is a core desire, a longing of the heart. God loves you and chose you before God spoke the universe into existence, and has chosen and purposed you to be the light of hope in the darkness of the despair that so many people are living in right now. True love is a choice and our love of God is the only true gift we can offer to God.
