Broken-Redeemed-Beautiful-Chosen 

For many are invited, but few are chosen.” ~ (Matthew 22:14) NIV

Have you ever stopped to think how God would describe your experience in four words if He had to? I am not sure about you, but it sounds a little creepy to think about a disembodied part of the human flesh doing anything, let alone, being capable of writing four words describing someone’s life and how they lived it. In the book of Daniel, the description of King Belshazzar’s life was handwritten on the wall with four words. 

The word broken comes to describe how I happened to know and understand Jesus. I lived much of my life in a state of brokenness. When I finally had enough and realized that I couldn’t do life on my own, the Lord met me, right where I was. 

After I repented, Jesus redeemed who I was. Jesus said that I no longer was defined by my sin, but instead, He was living in me. Life as I knew it changed. 

Beautiful was the person God had created. God made me in His image, and that is nothing less than beautiful, to Him. When I started to claim God’s truth, the perception I had for myself changed and also the view I had for others. 

Chosen is the new name that I received. No longer do I live by the name attributed to my past. I received a new name. The Lord has spoken to my heart, revealing to me, a new name that I am to walk by and be confident

The beautiful thing about the description of Jesus is that He doesn’t stop at four words. He has so many reflections of me, just as He does you. He provides relationship and connection in a way that we can’t fathom. God’s love goes beyond description. Accompanied, is the action of love, one more profound that we only get to experience a piece of it. I challenge you to think about your own four words that Jesus would describe of you with. What would He say?

Dear Heavenly Father, I want to thank you today for understanding that you see me more than just a description. I want to manifest into the person you created. I want to carry out your purpose. Allow me to accept your invitation, I can’t wait to see you at the celebration. In Jesus name, Amen.
