You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. - 1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)
I hurried to the park near my house, excited to try out for the Little League team. After doing drills for a while, we gathered to hear who was chosen to be part of the team. I was expectant, but unfortunately I was not chosen. Dejected, I slowly walked home....
God will always choose me.

...devoid of our regular routine and filled instead with uncertainty and a hum of anxiety, my husband and I have found the practice of joining The Upper Room each day at 11am (CST) via Facebook to pray, listen, and learn in community, including my sister in Houston. This is a much-needed healing balm." Join us on Facebook each day at 11AM Central.
