What He Chose

The bride, a princess, looks glorious
    in her golden gown.
In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king,
    accompanied by her bridesmaids.
What a joyful and enthusiastic procession
    as they enter the king’s palace! – Psalm 45:13-15


Today I am sitting in contemplation…

in wonder even…

that He owns all of this


And He chose me.

Today I am astounded…

not to mention humbled…

that He could create this


but longed to fashion me.

Today I will revel…

and be stupefied…

that all of this declares His glory



and yet He glorifies in me.



Today I will renew my hope…

how could I not…

as I recognize that He is God Almighty

and what He desires most is me.


Dear God, I am in awe. I pray to be a worthy bride, worthy of your pursuit, worthy of your adoration. I long to be faithful and beautiful. I love you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
