Chosen

Standard

Today I read a blog entry titled “chosen” which immediately struck a cord.  You can read the blog entry here:

Our daughter came to us with her English name – Grace – but we gave her another name – Khethiwe – which is also her middle name, it is a Zulu name that means “chosen”. This entry in the link was written by a Mom who has also adopted.  We knew “chosen” was a good name for our daughter and it is a very special name to all of us.  Then came this piece of scripture which is also in the link:

“For you are a holy people, who belong to the Lord your God.
Of all the people on earth, the Lord your God has chosen you
to be his own special treasure.”
– Deuteronomy 7:6

Oh man!  How awesome is this.  Gracie is also called “little treasure” by her Nana!  This was a good and Godly read.

Gotta love God-incidents.
