edit:you were chosen by God before the foundation of the world
I would love to stay and chat but my children are demanding my attention which they so rightly deserve so with that being said, I am going to make chocolate pancakes and hot chocolate and then we are going to start homeschooling...
Thank you ladies for the lovely chat, and I will catch up with you all later... it has been a joy, and may you all have a great day!!! :-)
We did not choose God... He chooses us!!!
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His Will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which he made us accepted in the beloved.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which he made abound towards us in all wisdom and prudence.
In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will
