How does God choose
The one who will suffer over time?
How does He pick
The one to experience immediate
And permanent loss?
What goes on in the heavens
Before these tragic events occur?
Do they grieve before us,
Before our lives are rocked?
Do they grieve with us
As our worlds are torn apart?
Or do they see a completely different picture,
One where our miseries highlight life’s beauties?
Does He choose the weak,
Or the frail?
Who makes the cut…
And how do I avoid it in the future?
On my many months of pain
I find myself questioning whether or not
I would do it all again.
I was put in the middle
Of impossible situations.
I was living a life
And making the most of it
While doctors reminded me
That I should have no hope.
I have nothing.
There is no progress
And things will only get worse.
It is here where I realize that
The Chosen have a Choice.
Who do you believe?
Do you side with them
Or with Him.
Both are experts in their field
With one major difference:
He created their field
and they’re still studying it.
If you look at your tough situation,
I mean really look at it,
Examine it and acknowledge
The Lord’s Hand.
Without being chosen,
Would these encounters have happened?
I don’t know.
Would you remove yourself from your equation
To simply have easier days?
Or would you intentionally keep yourself planted,
Planted smack dab in the middle of your turmoil,
Because you know, without a doubt,
That you are about to experience something,
Something that most people never come close to experiencing
No matter how long they live.
Something you would never trade anything for
Because you know the value of what’s coming.
You understand the importance of this gift
This treasure you’ll receive by following the Lord’s plan.
The Hand of the Lord guiding YOU personally through your challenge.
You see, the chosen have a choice,
And for some it might not be easy,
But for those of us that have walked this path,
It’s worth it.
Being able to experience
Directly from the One who gives it
Cannot be described.
It can only be missed
If the chosen
Make the wrong choice.
