I was thinking the other day about how my husband chose me to become his wife and the mother of his son. He says, that he knew from the moment he saw me, that I would be his wife. It took a little more persuading on my part, since I was in need of only a friend. But he did not give up. He continued to show his love towards me even when I was not ready.
When I read the first several verses in Ephesians chapter 1, I get an overwhelming feeling. To read about how the Lord chose me ~ before the earth was even created.
To know me, to love me, to want me, before I was even thought about, WOW!
Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
I thank the Lord for loving me enough to choose me.
