Chosen

Lord,

I don’t fit

I’m all elbows, edges, and angles

that doesn’t align, doesn’t match

with any place in this world.

And that’s ok.

You called me out of this world

picked me up from the miry clay,

and set me apart to be yours,

a citizen of heaven

made for eternal love and glory

spirit moving against the material grain of a fallen world.

I’m not rejected,

I’m chosen and special in Messiah.

I’m not a misfit,

I’m intimately understood by my Father.

I’m not wrong,

I’m unique and made for purpose by your grace.

So grant me grace to continue this journey,

as a foreigner and sojourner in a strange land,

understanding that all things will pass on this side,

and You will be waiting for me with open arms

to know You, love You, and see You clearly for all eternity

in the next.

I praise You Lord.

Amen.
