GOD chose you out of all the people on Earth for himself as a cherished, personal treasure.
dear soul, this is how personal your God is! this is how he sees you - someone he has chosen out of everyone else on the earth for himself, as a beloved, valued, cherished personal treasure. he chose you not because of anything about you, not because you were big and important - fact is, there was almost nothing to you. but he chose you because of who he is, not because of who you are - because he is a God who longs to know you, a God who longs to be known by you, he wants to have that connection with you, he wants you to have that connection with him, something that can never be severed by anyone, by anything - true life with him, a full life, a life full of him and all his goodness and who he is in and around you. you are chosen.
