I truly enjoy today’s Christian Contemporary music. It’s such a blessing to find and hear lyrics that always come right when you need to hear a word of encouragement, love and compassion. God certainly knows exactly what we need and when we need it. Recently, I have found myself focused on a song by the group Casting Crowns. A recent song, titled “Nobody” could not be more fitting for me at this time in my life. Part of the lyrics go like this:

“Why You ever chose me, Has always been a mystery
All my life, I`ve been told I belong At the end of a line.”

Does this sound familiar to you? Right now, that could not be truer for me. The truth lies in the second verse of the song that says, in part:

“Well, the moral of the story is; Everybody`s got a purpose.”

Although I’ve listened to this song many times, the other day, it hit me like a 300-lb defensive lineman! That’s it! Right there, that is God’s truth! We are chosen because He created us for His purpose and His plan. It doesn’t matter what our struggles, our circumstances, our pain, frustrations, anxiety, or disappointments. He has a plan a purpose for you, for me; for all of us! I had to be reminded to look to Him, above all the “stuff” of life and trust Him.

Where are you today? Struggling? Wondering and doubting with questions of why? Why me? As a husband, father, friend, neighbor, church member, employee ... there are many responsibilities. At times, it all feels so overwhelming. I’m sure you have found yourself in a similar place; past or present.

Today...Be More. Be more accepting of God’s plan for you and accept being “chosen” to serve; in whatever place He has called you. In Paul’s letter to the church in Ephesus, he states, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” — Ephesians 2:10 NIV You are chosen...live today with purpose! Remember that God’s got this!

Peace & Blessings!
