I remember as a little girl playing a game with my classmates and friends called “Duck…Duck…Goose”. We would all sit in a circle and one person would go around the tapping each person on the head and labeling us as a duck or a goose. There was only one goose and everyone wanted to be the goose…
She would walk around the circle ” Duck…Duck…Duck…Duck…GOOSE”. Yeah…It was me!!! I am the GOOSE…I would jump up and chase her around the circle trying to catch her before she was able to get back to the slot where I had been sitting.
You know, looking back, I didn’t want to get up and run around the circle…I just wanted to CHOSEN.
Life is much like a game of Duck…Duck…Goose. Jesus walks around our lives and He chooses us wanting us to chase after Him…
The coolest part of it all is He didn’t choose me because I am
He chose me because He loves me!!! He says…
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. John 15:16
Wow!!! He chose me, trusted me with an assignment and THEN…He promised to give me the desires of my heart!!!
Now that is better than any game of Duck…Duck…Goose I have ever played and already
