Chosen!

"He chose us...that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love...according to the good pleasure of His will."
Ephesians 1:4-5
God has a purpose for each one of us, a work for each one to do, a place for each one to fill, an influence for each one to exert, a likeness to His dear Son for each one to manifest, and then, a place for each one to fill in His holy Temple.
-Arthur C. A. Hall

Hi Bethany,
Just checking in... I'm sure I'll be doing that frequently during this month. :)
Beautiful picture (which I'm assuming you took), and what a wonderful reminder in Scripture! Thank you for sharing. What a way for me to continue my day.
Miss you all and love you.

It's me again. Hey, how do I go about getting a copy of your entry - Scripture, coloured picture, and verse at the bottom? (I am so computer dumb, and Ron doesn't really have the time to help me right now...) I would llike to have this hanging on my fridge and in Ron's office.
Thanks.
Doris

Bethany,
It is really great to know that God has this in mind for every person! Another remarkable thing about it is that the more we fufill these things the more joy we recieve. God's purposes for us are solely for our good and for His glory. Great post!

Hey Bethany...
Where was your new profile picture taken? (my, you just look soooo young!!! smile!)
I also like the thought of being chosen... ya gotta love Jeremiah 29:11. Though it is often quoted and so well known, the message of the text is still so precious!
That is one of the reasons I love God... He is so personal and always fills me with awe! *smile*
Love Ya!
