2015.09.08: chosen

For those he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, so that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined he also called; and those he called he also justified; and those he justified he also glorified. – Rom 8:29-30

when we find
our truest
most authentic
most deeply rooted
desire for life
and choose to cooperate
fully
unconditionally
without fears
or reservations
with the will of God
the resulting dance is
beautiful
joyful
graceful
purposeful
and fulfilling

we are
chosen
foreknew
predestined
justified
glorified

2015.07.12: the key

as he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blemish before him. In love – Eph 1:4


the key to all things
has always been love
ever since the beginning
when we were all chosen

we were given to him
and he was given to us
but we were also given
the freedom to choose

to believe or not believe
to trust or not trust
to follow or not follow
to love or not to love

we were chosen in love
will we choose to love?
the key to being holy
will always be love
