I choose You. – Day 18

I was left confused as I sat and listened in the pews after the gospel reading of yesterday’s Vigil for Protection of Human Life. The words from the gospel of John, “You did not choose me, I chose you…” kept repeating in my head. I have heard this gospel reading several times, but a thought popped in my head as the deacon read those words. It prompted me to question what Jesus meant when He said it.

“You did not choose me…”

Of course, I did. I chose this life. I chose You. Why would I do all these if I did not choose You? Tell me how I did it without choosing You.

“…I chose You.”

Why did you choose me? How can you choose me? Tell me how You can choose someone like me?

Most of the time when we feel like this, it’s when we question what God is doing in our lives. Because honestly at some point of our lives, we will ask those questions. Why me?

We may feel unworthy and a failure at times but at that point in our life we can choose God. We don’t have to wait for Him to choose us (of course He always chooses us), we must realize that we need Him.

Lord, give me more strength to face life’s difficulties.
