Chosen

Here is a song I wrote called Chosen. It’s still quite . . . unrefined, but I couldn’t wait to share it. I recently discovered a movie making program on my laptop and started playing around with it and thought it would be a fun way to share this message God has given me. The song is ‘a cappella and believe me when I say it’s rough, but it’s meaning, none-the-less, is so important to me. A couple weeks ago, I was reading the book of Ephesians and suddenly became overwhelmed by the realization that God has chosen me, chosen every living person to not only exist but to serve a purpose in Him. This is not new concept of course, and it’s something I’ve heard probably a thousand times. I especially enjoyed Shaun Groves’ words when he spoke that it’s not about what we’re saved from, but what we are saved for. Pastor Kris also preached on this not too long ago, and his message brought tears to my eyes. Don't get too excited though, PK, it usually doesn't take much ;o) Even though this is a message that held great meaning in my heart, the overall impact did not hit me until very recently. Or maybe it just hit me again . . . anyway, I had been feeling a great dissatisfaction in life and felt it was not quite what it should be. Although there are different factors that could and should probably change, it has occurred to me that the key to glorifying God isn’t solely in a career change or an alteration in home life. The change must occur within. To become what He intends me to be. To fulfill my purpose. Why I have been chosen. Off-notes and all, here it is. Enjoy!
