I, the elder, to you, a lady chosen by God along with her children. I truly love all of you and am confident that all who know the truth share in my love for you.
2 John 1
So I’m going to get this new Monday Devo plan started right out of the gate with some hard transparency.
I don’t always feel “CHOSEN”. Not by my “children (as the verse highlights), not by friends, not even by God. Sometimes, I feel more forgotten than chosen and more invisible than visible.
My honey and I are in the middle of moving from our home in Tampa, Flordia to somewhere-maybe–Atlanta or there-about. We are saying “so long for now” to a lifetime of friends and family who share God’s good truth and love with us. Friends who have walked the quest of faith with us for many, many years.
This morning as I curled up in my “prayer chair” with u-haul boxes all around me, my coffee and my journal. and turned to this weeks verse, I couldn’t help but wonder, who will love us in who knows where? It made me think of the old Christian song I learned long ago that says–“when its all been said and it’s all been done, do you know your savior, do you know God’s son?”.
Today’s verse is a fresh revelation of GRACE, of God’s good love and a boost of confidence that I am loved and chosen no matter where I am.
I am a woman chosen by truly loved and embraced by His grace and sharing His love with those around me, near and far.
Old friends and new friends and glory to his name, my children.
Lord, thank you for reminding me that I am chosen and truly loved. Thank you for friends, family, CHILDREN and Grandchildren who share that love with me. Amen. #asimpleprayer
