What Does God See In Me?

It's hard to believe that, as I sit here and write this blog post, God prepared for the event years ago. (Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. ESV)

In fact, if you had told me ten years ago that one day I would dedicate my life to doing God's work and good works, I'd have said, "Ho hum. Boring!" I was in love with my sinful life.

But, these days, as gray hair and wisdom set in, I can clearly see how God-in His grace-allowed me to learn from those sins with His Higher Purpose in mind. Yes, God saw something in me-even as a sinner-He knew He could one day manipulate to His advantage.  (Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.)

And, as I read and study the Bible, I realize I'm not special. In the past, God has used countless sinners like to me accomplish His purpose. I'm particularly drawn to the story of Paul who, after receiving Jesus into His heart, went from persecuting Christians to spreading the gospel of Christ!

What did God see in me all those years ago? I cannot fathom. But I know He sees something in you, too. Maybe it's faith or humility or courage-and He's drawn you to read this blog post much like He's drawn me to write it. God has a plan for your future...regardless of your past! (Proverbs 16:9 In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.)

 Well said! I am indeed one of those sinners as well. Yet, it wasn't enough for God to heal my heart..........my body as well. That is not special as well........but for all of us who believe......from the heart. 

You have me crying out of Joy as I contemplate The Father's unconditional Love for me. Yes He Loved me, even when I was at my worst.
