Small Seed for 12-23-14

God Chose You.

"...God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience." Colossians 3:12

Focus on those first three words. GOD CHOSE YOU

How does that change your day? Your life? 

For me, I'm tearing up as I type this. It changes everything. I can't wrap my head around it. God chose me. Why? I'm so undeserving. So broken. A mess. A sinner. And yet, he loves me. He wants me. He chose me.

How can I respond to that? He tells us how. "clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience". 

Each day is new and fresh. We will fail, but He chose us. We can start again. Trying to be more like Christ.

How does this verse affect you?


  1. Dawn hearing those words is a great reminder for me at the moment, that still the voices of doubt, fear and insecurity, it turns everything on its head with questions like 'why me' 'what did I do' or look what I have done. We are there but for his grace, thanks for sharing this reminder. Blessings

    1. Amanda, I know what you mean. I needed to focus on it too. My responses to stress lately haven't been how I want to be. I want to clothe myself with kindness, patience, humility and gentleness. I am so thankful for God's Word to remind me. Thank you for sharing.


I appreciate your comments! I try to respond to each one.
