God Chose...

a no one from no where.
Mary & Joseph.  
An engaged couple. A carpenter. A young girl.
Two people who were not well known or well versed.
Just 2 ordinary people.

Can you wrap your head around that for a minute?
God did not choose a king or elder. 
He chose no ones from no where.

With Christmas less than a week away, why don't we grasp the concept that God chose us.
He chooses us daily.
He chose us when He sent His Son to die for us.

Why, then don't we choose Him?
Why don't we make a daily decision to marvel at the fact that our God has set us apart to make great things happen in this world. We are chosen to bring a light to this dark world.

I pray that through this season, we will be showing our hearts to those around us.

And not to make this a shameless plug, but a great way to show your heart is by giving.
Being a testimony through your gifts to others.
This week is the last week that you will have the opportunity to shop for Operation Zipper Pouch.
I know Christmas is Sunday & life is bound to be chaotic, but I don't want to leave anyone out.
