Do you feel passed over, overlooked, or forgotten? Remember you are never overlooked by the One who treasures you.
Back in high school, I remember trying out for the cheerleading squad. Although I knew my flexibility and coordination skills were not the most graceful, I practiced non-stop during my sophomore year, only to not be picked. (Spoiler alert! I was finally selected as a Varsity cheerleader in my senior year). Then one time, as a recording artist, I wanted my song to be picked and for me to sing it. The song was picked, but with another singer singing it – ouch. And the times I watched from the sidelines as my peers rose in their positions, me waving, hoping they would still remember me (and they did).
Mainly, I have learned that sometimes you are picked, and sometimes you are not. Because disappointments arrive when we look at people, our careers, or clicks and likes for validation. Even with my share of blessings, I feel the sting of not belonging, being on the sidelines, and being unnoticed at times.
But then God whispers, “Why do you fret? Do you know that I chose you?
In Deuteronomy 14:2, we find God’s promise, “For you are a holy people to the LORD your God, and the LORD has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth” (NKJV).
God chose the Israelites to be His.
Through Jesus Christ God chose us to be His special royal and holy people. Picking us out of the darkness and moving us into His marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9).
But then God whispers, “Why do you fret? Do you know that I chose you? #chosen #encouragement #trustGodTweet
Into His Marvelous Light –
This is a beautiful balm for my weary soul. My validation is not from people because God validates me. I am the apple of His eye.
It is crucial to remember that you, too, are special to God because you are His daughter.
Therefore, remember that God hand-picked you the next time you feel abandoned, excluded, or neglected. And, you are His special treasure.
So, dance in the light, free from the darkness, Holy daughter of the Most Highest. For you are never overlooked by the One who treasures you.
How are you dancing today?
Dance in the light, free from the darkness, Holy daughter of the Most Highest. For you are never overlooked by the One who treasures you. #chosen #Godstreasure #encouragementTweet
