Bless the Lord oh my soul. Jesus picked His Disciples on purpose for a purpose. They were chosen in their day just as we have been chosen in our day. We have been Chosen on purpose in spite of the fact that we are just like they were with our own struggles, weaknesses, and fears. The good news is we have faith and Jesus saw that in us when He chose us and by faith we can overcome our struggles, weaknesses, and fears. We were the right choice to change our world unless you think God makes mistakes. You are the exact right choice to be a witness to your friends. Now don’t get to puffed up. 1 Corinthians 1:27 “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.” God saw your problems as stones that could be used as weights to bring you down or stepping stones to bring you up into a better future. He will set you free and bring you into blessing to reveal just how powerful He is. So lift up your head, God picked you, and I believe He made a great choice.
