Wednesday Whisper ~ You Are Chosen

Rejection sucks! There’s no other way to say it. We all remember and dread not getting the job or promotion we’d hoped for, or not getting a date with you-know-who or a positive response to that ‘Friend Request.’ For authors, it’s a manuscript being turned down…again. For those doing auditions, it’s not receiving a ‘call back.’ As children, we may have been rejected by a parent or as parents, we may be rejected by our child. (Rejection from teenagers doesn’t count!) Everyone experiences rejection of some kind.

But here’s the good news. There is One who always chooses you. He always chooses you to be on His team. He always chooses you to be His friend. And, He has chosen you to do a special work for Him. Isaiah 41:9 says, “I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.” ~ (NIV) So smile and look up! You have been chosen.

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
