'Chosen by God'... amazing to me

Hope springs from those words,
Redeemed and set free!

God spoke my name before I was formed

He knew who I was before I was born.

Human heart spends a lifetime, seeks endlessly

For the answer to life - God abiding - in me!

He has promised me LIFE, in the name of His Son

No searching for more, the victory is won.

Coming before Him, I bend my knee

Heart filled with thanksgiving for His gift to me.

The rest of my life - such a small offering

To the one who has saved me, My God and my King!

I love the image of running water. It is amazing how the one, only true God who created ALL loves us and chose us. How grateful I am for His grace and mercy.

The song, I Surrender All, would be a good accompaniment to this post. That, and an "amen!".
