The other day, my sister had on her Facebook status that she felt like she was everyone's second choice. Today, I was making the same statement to Matt. Matt does not make me feel like a second choice, but there often times when situations with others leave me with this feeling. It wouldn't surprise me to find out the most people feel like they are the second choice. Of course, only we can decide how we are going to respond to the situations in life, and if we respond with feeling like we are the second choice, then we will have to learn to deal with that feeling.
Thankfully, we are always God's first choice. I am in the process of memorizing the letter to the Ephesians. In the first chapter, Paul encourages the Ephesians by telling them how special they are in God's eyes. God chose us. We were predestined according to His plan. God has called us to hope, to the riches of His inheritance, and to His incomparable power. God will never let us down. He will never be too busy. He will never make other plans. He calls us to become part of the body of Christ. No room for second choices exists in God's kingdom. We will all be His first choice. Praise God that He is big enough and powerful enough to meet the needs of every person on this planet.
