“Most of my life until then had been a pick yourself, bet on yourself affair because I felt like I was out of options. I had done it all, tried it all and still, I wasn’t chosen. Not for opportunities I had tried out for or things I signed up for. Not by companies I wanted to work for. Not by the people I had approached. Therefore, I assumed I was definitely not chosen by God.
I felt cheated. The only thing worse than being the last kid to get picked in a game is being the kid who doesn’t get picked at all and having to watch the rest play from the sidelines. I couldn’t bear that so what did I do? I invented a new game of life, made my own rules and played. And boy did I play!
Yet there He was, disarming me with words I feared I’d never hear.
Me who so badly wanted a win so I aligned with anything that carried the whiff of success. Me who felt behind in life.
I was chosen. Me.
