His chosen

My Father said, as I sat in silence:

I have called you
and set you apart
and you not longer "fit"
in the world around you, no
not even the "Christian" wrld
for many call themselves by My name
but their hearts are far from Me

I know you feel the distance
and discomfort
you do not "fit in"
your edges are rubbed raw

allow Me to soothe and smooth
the rough places
but do not expect that to make you
a better fit
you are odd by design
by My hand
for My purposes
in My Kingdom

the world also did not welcome Me
but you carry My message
for this you were chosen

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood,
 a holy nation, God’s own people, 
that you may declare the wonderful deeds of him 
who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
